This was a gift from SoccerMom.

Post-Steep Additives: German rock sugar, didn’t help much

Having it hot tasted like a potentially god drink, but a little off. It was floral, I don’t want flowers in my limeade.

Having it hot steeped then iced in the fridge was odd, it tasted warm, the liquid was cold but it tasted warm…

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).
