Steepster traveling teabox tea!

Not really getting the sweet cream taste, it is a smooth yet bold black, but that’s about it.

Post-Steep Additives: german rock sugar, 1 tsp

This tempers the bitter, now I think it bring out the creaminess.

Resteep: 2 min w/1 tsp rock sugar

I still the am getting mostly the same as above and I am getting a slight citrus hint in the flavor and the hint of vanilla in the smell MilitiaJim was talking about.

I am a cream and sugar in my black tea kind of person, some people don’t really like additives, while others always put them in without trying the tea first. i like to give the tea a chance first.

It’s a solid black, but I won’t buy it as there are other blacks I love as opposed to like / find to be good quality.

Bio

I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
