My coworker gave me a sample of this one, as I gave her a few samples, and she wanted to return the favour.

I lost this one for a short bit. I couldn’t find it anywhere. I looked high and low and I thought maybe my cat had stolen it. And I was worried. The one cat we have use to be a barn cat for a bit. He is very much a “hunt and kill; eat whatever you can” kind of a cat. He has stolen cadbury cream eggs from me (thankfully I got those back asap), whole packages of english muffins, bread… just about any food that cat can get his little teeth on, he’ll take. Which, when I saw this one was missing, I was worried! I was scared that maybe he had taken it for a snack, and being there is chocolate in it, I was concerned he’d get sick. Silly kitty…

So, my coworker was going to give me another sample, but I finally found it! It was hidden away with some bulk barn purchases (I think I threw it in there so the cat wouldn’t get it).

I love the smell of this tea. It is nice and warm, yet, it has some zing to it.

Taste-wise… I don’t know if I really enjoy this tea or not. I think it might be the cinnamon… I don’t know. I wasn’t blown away by this one. But, I do want to state too before I review the taste more, that I really haven’t had a good week at work. I keep getting ‘talked to’ ‘cause of things that either I’ve done or things that they think I’m doing and I’m not actually doing…
Anyway, so I might have been a bit distracted when I tried this tea today. I wasn’t crazy head-over-heels for it yet, but I should try this one again when I can sit at home, either at my comforting writing desk or the soft couches in the living room and really take some time to soak this one in.

I might be placing an order next week for my b-day (Thurs!), so I might go ahead ask for another sample of this one with my order if I can do that… Given too… haha I might get this one for my b-day as I’ve told a few people that’s what I’m hoping to get.

As a side note… my steepster b-day (my join date – Oct. 23) is coming up too! I may have to have something special that day also!

Bio

My love of tea didn’t start until a few years after highschool, when a friend of mine made me an Orange Pekoe tea with milk and sugar. It was like drinking sweet nectar from heaven. Ever since then, I’ve been hooked.

Since then, I’ve branched out to embrace different flavours and kinds of tea.

There’s no question in my mind that loose leaf tea is the way to go. Absolutely NOTHING compares to it. I do have the odd bagged tea but I definitely prefer loose.

I would have to say, my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too).

White and green teas I find tricky. I’ve definitely started to love them, but I have to be careful I don’t overdue it and that I don’t oversteep.

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
