Finished the rest of this tiny tin from the caffeine-free sampler tonight!

I’m a little torn on this one. Last night I think I understeeped it at 4 minutes, and it tasted like very, very light milk caramel chew. Tonight I got distracted and it definitely steeped for longer than 5 minutes… maybe 8 minutes? Whatever it was, it was way too long and it tasted woodsier and not caramel-y at all. But I’m not clamoring to try this one again. I was expecting something a bit more like Lupicia’s Caramel & Rum, which may have been the problem. That and the dry rooibos smells amazing. I wish I could just eat that smell.

I’ve just recently discovered the world of loose tea and am really enjoying myself. I’m still in SAMPLE EVERYTHING mode, and likely always will be.

I love green teas, chai, and citrus flavors. I don’t mind hibiscus. I will drink a bitter green tea, but won’t drink bitter black tea. I’m working on figuring out which black teas work for me.

I tend to drink my tea without milk or sugar.

I’m using Steepster’s Cupboard function to actually reflect my current tea stock, otherwise I’d never be able to remember what I already have.
