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.

Bio

I have recently become tea obsessed! I’ve always loved an occasional cup and my mother is a daily tea drinker, but in the last year it has become my favorite thing! Started out by having a cup of black tea in the morning. Loved going for afternoon tea with my mom! Since fully immersing myself in loose leaf tea, I have become nuts for it!

I am now exploring more and more companies, and trying to go beyond my comfort zone of flavored black teas and try more oolong, green and white teas.

My favorite teas are evolving. I love teas from DavidsTea, Lupicia, Harney and Sons, Della Terra Teas, and Butiki!
