A good cup of tea, but not amazing. I’ll gladly enjoy the rest of this tea, but I can’t see myself craving it. I am also not a rose fan.

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).
