I steeped this for 2 minutes instead of 1 and I’m almost singing from the hills.

It’s so rich and dark and full of honey and I can taste the malt and oh my…

Maybe next time I’ll steep it for 3 minutes now that my tolerance for strong flavours has gone up. I think I only have 1 oz of this left too. :O I better step up my point earning!

I steep 1 Tbl for 3 minutes, & then resteep for 5. I love it!!

I can never rarely decide which version I want! the rich or delicate one lol- they’re both so gooooood!

Two minutes? That’s way less than I’ve been doing (I’m embarrassed to say how much.) Next time I get some in my stash I’ll have to try that, because the sweet flavor I’ve been getting so far isn’t quite malty.

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)
