This was a big hit at my tea with friends today. I made it in my new clear teapot, and the color was so beautiful!!! I wish I had taken a picture. Everyone really enjoyed it, and it went great with the little almond cookies my friend brought from her local Italian bakery.

We also enjoyed caramel oolong by DTT, and dolce vita by RiverTea, with our tea sandwiches and scones. I made the favorite Jamaican banana scones. I wanted to try a new recipe from my Tea Time magazines, but my friend specifically requested those. We also enjoyed the usual cucumber cream cheese sandwiches, and a new favorite: goat cheese, onion, and artichoke sandwiches. It was a great way to spend a Sunday!! :)

Profile

Bio

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! :)
