drank Ceylon Star by DAVIDsTEA
541 tasting notes

I had QUITE the morning today. Got delayed to work because some crazy dude decided to have fun running around on top of my commuter train. Yes, we heard the footsteps on the roof!

Then I had to rush to a training, but wanted to make some tea, so shoved this tea in the brewing basket of my timolino. Well, when I went to remove the leaves, I dropped the whole basket with leaves into my timolino. Ya. I did that. So, I was stuck in my training and couldn’t do anything about it, so tried to still drink it through the lid (I thought the little holes in the lid would prevent most of the leaf from coming through, and yes, I knew it would eventually get bitter) Ya, not so great….I burnt my tongue and pieces of leaf came through, so I gave up. What a morning!

I thought my profile needed a facelift, so here we go:

My obsession with tea really started around October 2012 when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed going out to afternoon tea with my mom. I was really into An Afternoon to Remember’s creme brulee tea, since they had an afternoon tea place at that time, which has since closed…so sad and I haven’t found a good replacement.

So, I kinda went nuts when I discovered both DavidsTea and Lupicia in the SF mall, and I still frequent them, though my tastes have substantially changed over time from wanting to try all the teas to being a bit more particular.

Once I discovered steepster, literally by looking up reviews of a DavidsTea tea, I was hooked! So many tea companies I never heard of and everything sounding so delicious!

I found I still love dessert teas, like flavored black teas, but I also really enjoy oolong (both green and roasted). I occasionally enjoy flavored rooibos and white teas. I’ve had a rough time with puerh, and still think it tastes like leather. Recently, after having some really amazing teas from Teavivre, I can now say I love unflavored Chinese black teas and green teas.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Teavivre, Golden Moon, Butiki, Lupicia, and DavidsTea.

Just a note: I don’t rate my teas numerically because my iPad doesn’t like the scroll bar. Maybe someday that will change…hint hint, steepster! ;)

P.S. My profile picture is of one of my 2 cats, Holly, who is a little princess but very photogenic, and she loves boxes, including those that bring me tea! :)
