This is an old love, a few years ago i was wildly infatuated with this blend. And it is still lovely, it still tastes the same, but my affections for this thing (caramel, chocolate, black tea) seem to have been unfairly alienated by Yumchaa´s Caramel Sweetheart (milk mandatory). Maybe unfairly, because Caramel Sweetheart is denser, less just-tea, but maybe irrevocably. Lovely caramel tea, but an ex-love.

I so understand the “ex-love” thing!!! so many of those in my cupboard…

it´s an ex-love, but I think we can remain on friendly terms. And I forgot to mention something I have been noticing (for a few hours after drinking this), it´s a very “peppy” tea. Maybe higher on caffeine than I used to, but this blend does seem to give me a lot of energy. Still a place in my life for it – if only all ex-loves on the cupboard were the same.

Bio

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky. I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am trying to make sure …

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres,Thé-o-Dor and Yumchaa.
