drank Ceylon Star by DAVIDsTEA
508 tasting notes

I’ve had a giant cup of this tea for the last three days, and that’s okay….you know why? Because I have 8.8 oz. on its way to me! Yep! When I saw it on the web special list for 48% off, surrounded by what I think are not very popular teas, it looked like they were going to discontinue it. NO!! I emailed them about it, but have yet to receive confirmation on this. So, instead of hoarding what I have left, I bought a TON of it! They can’t take it away from me now! (Or at least not until I’ve drank all 8.8 oz!) ;)

Hahah. That’s a pretty decent sized hoard. :)

Ceylon Star isn’t going anywhere! It’s just being featured in the Web Special, it’s not being discontinued :)

Tealizzy

Well, I guess I just got a lot of it at almost half price! Glad to hear it’s not being discontinued. :)

I did the same thing, but I’m positive it has been discontinued now. Sadness, since it’s a very nice tea, but partner and I now have over a pound of it between the two of us, so I think we’ll be okay.

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! :)
