I steeped this for 12 minutes by mistake.

Guys: DO NOT DO THAT.

(This is not a tea that oversteeps well). I took a sip and it burned my mouth with all the smoke. I had to dump it, and I wasn’t ready to try that again)

Gah. I’ve actually been nervous to try a smoky tea but I’ll remember not to oversteep it under any circumstances now haha!

CrowKettle

That sounds like quite the experience! This kind of tea is usually potent enough even when you understeep it.

Indigobloom

would have made an excellent marinade for beef! lol

Courtney – they are polarizing teas. I like them, but understand why people wouldn’t.

CrowKettle- it WAS potent. My tester sip was so intense I didn’t even want to try to make another cup. Just kept movinh!

IndigoBloom- that’s a great idea
I’ve never experimented with tea and cooking.

I like smoky teas with milk/sugar, so I probably would have just doctored it up and drank it anyways! No way I would have tried it straight though, haha.

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
