This was a huge and generous gift from Lori via the take it away thread.

I love hazelnut, so sniffing this tea makes me happy.

WOW that is some strong tea, next time I am brewing it much shorter!

It has yummy morning wake up black tea potential (shorter steep, some milk and sugar)

Post-Steep Additives: sugar, a bit better, could have used some milk

I am fully confident I will like this tea at least as a 50% once I fiddle with it

my mom-Delicious with less leaf, even with more time, she thinks I am crazy for not liking it.

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. 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).
