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 morning roll of #3.

Post-Steep Additives: 1 packet white sugar, brings our the coconut

Steep 2: 2 tsp new leaves, 12 ounces hot spigot water, same process but more like 2-3 minutes instead of 3+, 1 packet white sugar, much smoother, not bitter, but still astringent, yummy coconut black.

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).
