I’ve gone through this little pouch really fast. Maybe it’s because I just bought a 16 oz. Nordic mug from DavidsTea, but I think I went through most of the tea before that. It’s a really solid pumpkin pie tea, and I’m loving pumpkin teas of all sorts right now!

I love my new mug too! I picked up the forest trees one. So cute! And it’s HUGE!!! If you guys are struggling to clear out your cupboard before Black Friday, I definitely recommend a 16 oz. mug. Tea goes really fast that way, but I’m starting to wonder if I’m getting too much caffeine…wheeee! I wanted a big mug, because I took on a temporary position, as acting manager of my office while my boss is on detail for a couple months, and it’s really hard to make time for tea! Another reason I haven’t been on steepster in a week…I’ve been exhausted! Just wanted you to know, I’m still here, but barely . ;)

Gah, Nordic mugs are my favorite. I am seriously tempted to get the red sweater one.

I just wish the mountains theme for fall came in a multicoloured nordic mug. Then I’d be well on my way to establishing a theme! (I got my brother the green snowshoe mug from the summer as well.)

Another profile facelift! My tastes have changed a lot from when I first discovered loose leaf tea.

I can trace my tea journey back to October 2012, when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed high tea at An Afternoon to Remember, which has since closed.

I went through a period of wanting to try all the teas, and was really into flavored teas, especially dessert blacks, but my tastes have substantially changed over time.

I still enjoy the occasional flavored black or rooibos, but I’m more into unflavored black teas right now and recently, puerh. Chinese black teas are amazing…with their notes of chocolate or sweet potato, who needs a flavored tea? I had a much steeper learning curve when it came to puerh. I used to dump out cups of puerh for tasting like leather. Now, I am really enjoying them. I think it took finding good quality puerh and steeping them gong fu style to really enjoy them.

I also, on occasion, enjoy a good oolong, white, or green tea.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Mandala, Teavivre, Butiki, Golden Moon, Lupicia, and DavidsTea (for teaware mostly).

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! :)
