And another win from TTC! This tea is full-bodied with a lot of depth to it. I’m getting juicy plum, cinnamon and something darker/richer with each sip. It’s a wonderfully heavy tea for such a moody/dark day.

(166) It’s Sil’s fault that I finished this today because we were talking about it so I thought about it, and now it’s gone. No rush to buy more bc it’s so insanely artificially sweet, but it was fun while I had it!

(Well… maybe 20g more?)

Lariel

I forgot to get some today.

The smoke in this is quite acceptable. I’m getting chocolate and raisins and campfire all mixed up in one. It’s good. Yep. Good.

drank Chaud Les Marrons! by Lupicia

Sil said a few things about how she loved this tea to make me think that maybe I should give it another chance as I was fairly indifferent about it. I waited for a cool day and tried it, and it was good. I’m still not nuts about nutty teas, but they’re good to have around for the occasional craving!

I love it as a chestnut tea….there are other teas I love more…if that makes sense

Cavocorax

Totally! But when you want chestnut, that’s the one!

Dustin

I think I preferred their green chestnut without the chocolate, which is strange because you’d think adding chocolate to anything would be a win.

Amariel

I liked it a lot when I tried it.

This tea is my happy place tea. I drank it last night and am resteeping it today.
I hope I ordered more when I did my Butiki order, but I’m not sure… ($35+free tea can only get you so much…) It’ll be a surprise!

This is like drinking pine forest. In the spring. On a nice cool day. It’s delicious.

Miss Starfish

Well that’s an awesome mental picture!

Cavocorax

:) It’s a really great tea! And it’s only available on the first of each month!

Fun fact! If you steep this super-concentrated and then fill your cup with ice and then add milk, it is DELICIOUS.

Are you surprised? Probably not. This tea is great.

This sounds like joy. JOY.

OMGsrsly

Ooo, I have to make this tomorrow morning!

(171) Thanks VariaTEA for letting me try this one out. It’s surprisingly tasty. It’s creamy, buttery and so lemony.

I didn’t expect to actually like this one so much so I’m very grateful to have had the chance, especially since I can’t foresee placing an H&S order any time soon. (Sadly, I like the TeaG version of lemon tea much more!)

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)
