Tea of the morning here; this is an old favorite of mine and practically everyone else on Steepster. :)

Although I wouldn’t really classify the Laoshan Black as a “breakfast” tea per se, I am finding the cocoa and roasted barley of the tea to be extremely comforting today. As a general rule I don’t take NSAID’s due to a prior stomach issue but I started in on a low dose of ibuprofren yesterday to see if I can get rid of this tendonitis and get back to more physical therapy!

Mmmmm… I nearly brought some of this to work today and now I wish I had.

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

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
