I won these teas in a contest that was run by Dan on Steepster that was great fun, and got me tea prizes!

Post-Steep Additives: honey, gave it a honey after taste and didn’t really affect the taste

A notch below spring cherry from the republic of tea but better than soem of the other cherry greens I have tried.

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).
