80

So the Dobe needed to go out for some fun… turned out we finaly got some snow today and my 100 pound Doberman is on a high! We just came back inside and I’m freezing!

I’m in the mood for something hot & spicy…let’s see…perfect moment to try this newbee in my collection.

I just had my first sip…it’s lovely! Of course, It is not as bold as some black chai, but to pair up with the delicate taste of Oolong, it shouldn’t be. The spices are definitely there, but not in a screaming way. I steeped in a not so hot temperature for about 4.5 min., probably below the recommended. 94 C. I’m always careful not to burn the oolong, so this temparature works best for my taste.

If you never tried chai, I’d say it’s better to start slowly, and I think this one would perfect to begin with.

Bio

I am French Canadian, so please forgive me if my English is not always perfect!

My relationship with tea in a nut shell:

I’m married to straight Blacks. I have torrid love affairs with Oolongs. My BFF are Greens. I socialize more and more with Pu’erhs. I have distant White acquaintances that I visit once in a while. I party with Flavored!

Love Steepster, a place for tea lovers, where you learn and share with others…

About me:

I am a free spirit, I let people be who and what they want to be and expect the same in return.

Books! I love French and classic literature, but also modern and pretty much anything that captures my attention.

As tea and books, music is something I can’t live without! From Bach to Nirvana, my ears know no boundaries…

Art is food for the soul…I consume lots of it.

Animal and nature lover, I will never let a fury friend in needs.

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember. But since I’v joined Steepster, my tea knowledge has emancipated exponentially.

Drinking tea is a sensorial experience. The name in itself “Camellia Sinensis” lingers the promess of an adventure for the senses…

As for my rating system, well it’s pretty much inexistent…Since I don’t write many reviews, I try to focus on the good stuff and will usually review teas that left a big impression on me.

Not a big «swapper» but if we do get to swap together, you’ll remember me, I live up to my Fairy reputation :-)

I love taking tea pics, here’s my Instagram:
