Steepster Traveling Teabox Tea

Made this while rushing around in the morning getting ready to go to work.

I didn’t smell spice or ginger, more fruity.

I started the second steep before tasting the first.

I ended up chugging it as it was so bitter and astringent.

It could have used less time (mild) and perhaps cream and sugar to be palatable.

Post-Steep Additives: none

Resteep: Zarafina Black-loose-strong

I made this one as a chai, and it was drinkable… but still didn’t taste like gingerbread. If you have more, that’s how I’d recommend you try it!

AmazonV

Another tea off my wishlist! It’s sad to hear that this was not gingerbread-y.

Miss Sweet

Aw, looks like I’m still on the hunt for the perfect gingery black tea then

AmazonV

task: google gingerbread recipe – try and throw all those things into some black tea

AmazonV

ginger, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, vanilla + sugar …. perhaps a chai mix could do it…

If you blend it, AmazonV, I’ll order some from you! :) You can get into the tea blending business : AmazonV’s amazing Gingerbready Black Tea!

~lauren.

Go For It!!! LOL! I’ll be your first customer! But don’t forget to provide tracking for shipments, that seems to be a huge issue!

AmazonV

being I’ll have minimal income when i start I’ll just deliver them door to door! market it as a premium service :)

~lauren.

Oh dear, but you’ll still be getting these help-us-or-we’ll-expire-without-you phone calls in the middle of the night from your server/computer job friends! I see exhaustion in your future but lots of $$$!!!

AmazonV

lol! yea those pesky servers are after my sleeping time

SoccerMom

AmazonV, LOL I could just see MilitiaJim and Bobbie’s faces if you told them you quit your job to blend tea!! LMAO

SoccerMom

I would order from you though!

AmazonV

Actually, mom offered to help me open a tea shop, I just don’t think I could!
Of course since I pay rent i think it would be a bit of trouble…
and hence why i still babysit the servers (who are behaving this week!)

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).

~~~~~~~~*~
0-25=Bleh! not again if it were free
25-50=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
