Tea of the morning here, it’s a nice hefty blend with a bit of lapsang mixed in. It’s still raining here and looks like it will be all day. Too bad I have so many plans that will take me out of my Hobbit hole today. :)

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

Sounds yummy!
I find the smokey always takes over in lapsang blends. Like peppermint, you add just a smidge and it dominates entirely! (won’t even talk about hibby here lol)

this is pretty subtle but you’re right, the lapsang has a tendency to dominate everything!

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
