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 am playing a game with the samples. This was a roll of “1” for morning (black) teas.

Post-Steep Additives: 1 packet of white sugar
sweeter, less bitter, more toffee in the sip and after

Resteep: 3 min, 12 ounces, 2 packets of sugar

Meh, I don’t love it, I don’t hate it

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).
