Mmmmm, still drinking some of these samples Angel sent me. So happy to be enjoying this right now, and wondering whether this one should have been included in my last order. It’s so delicious, it’s making me into a green tea drinker!

We just got back from a weekend trip to Salt Lake City to see my sister’s graduation from grad school. Pretty great, and I liked Utah too! Guess we’re going to have to go out there more often. :) I brought a “travel bag” of teas with me…pretty much just Lupicia newsletter samples, which come in handy on travel, since they’re in sachets. I didn’t really drink any tea except for the one full day we were there, and I had Cookie, with some sugar and half and half I grabbed from the hotel complimentary breakfast. Ha! I also had Momoko, which I think I oversteeped, because it was a bit bitter. Despite that, it was really nice to have tea from home…it’s like bringing a little bit of home with you. :)

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! :)
