LOVE this! Golden Moon, why haven’t I tried you sooner?! I think I might have just died and gone to tea heaven! It’s like they read my mind and made a tea just for me. It’s sweet, it’s carmel-ly, it’s a little toasty, and so absolutely satisfying. Must resteep!!!

First time I tried this, I was expecting Milk Duds … but it’s much more elegant and subtle than that.

YAY I’m glad you like it, too :D

Haha, another Golden Moon addict! I still have a bunch of samples from them to try…

So I am a little leery of flavored oolongs, but this one has caught my eye. Is the oolong base a roasted oolong or a more green oolong?

Tealizzy

TeaTiff – it’s kind of in the middle, but I would say the flavor leans more toward the roasted side.

I don’t normally like roasted oolongs, but I totally dig this one with the burnt sugar flavors

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! :)
