drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
535 tasting notes

So, it’s been a little crazy around here lately, so I haven’t been on steepster much. I’m one of the unfortunate government workers who’s been furloughed until Congress figures things out. It’s a really weird place to be. Anyway, I’m trying to keep busy so I don’t think about it too much. Fortunately, my husband doesn’t work for the government.

I had 3 steepings of this tea today. Just didn’t feel like having a variety, or taking the effort to make different teas, so I just resteeped. Although the third steeping was pretty weak, with brown sugar and soy milk, it was still delicious. This one has totally grown on me. Btw, I was making chocolate chip cookies, and stole a chip or two from the batter, and this tea is especially delicious if you take a sip after chewing a semi-sweet chocolate chip. ;)

Too bad I can’t pick up more of this until I can go back to work (the store is near my office and I have a large commute), but I guess that’s a good thing, since I probably shouldn’t spend too much money right now.

That’s really awful. Best of luck to you.

Sorry you’re affected. Thankfully, I’m a contractor and we’re good till at least the end of the year (I sincerely hope it doesn’t take that long). I hope they figure things out soon!

Thanks, All! I’m trying to stay positive and take the opportunity to do things I don’t normally have time for.

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! :)
