Hello steepster, I’m not dead! I am the next thing to dead, promoted. So I drink way more tea at a desk and have more funbucks to spend on tea but less time to review it.

So the backlog starts with my favorite new favorite from the summer, which I apparently like much more than Steepster at large. I love all things hibiscus, since jamaica over ice has been a fixture in my life., so I really love Queen of Tarts. It’s like Passion tea with a backbone.

Hot, not so much. I always ice it after a long steep so it doesn’t dilute too much, and the stevia lead means I don’t have to add any sweetener, although its also amazing with raspberry syrup. Beautiful rich color and bright flavor, not puckery tart to me. The only reason it doesn’t get a perfect for me is its insufficient guayusa content. My junkie self just added more plain guayusa, and problem solved.

Already reordered, and should arrive tomorrow!
