I won these teas in a contest that was run by Dan on Steepster that was great fun, and got me tea prizes! Dan will be running the contest monthly, so keep an eye out!

I find the labels on the tea samples to be perfect, they include the company name, tea name, tea type, and steeping directions.

I am playing a game with the samples, based on Rabs Geek Pride Day Giveaway, this was #4

It’s a very nice coffee flavored, caffeine free drink, I’m really enjoying this!

Post-Steep Additives: 1 packet white sugar
much more caramel than coffee now

An excellent dessert tea!

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).
