Last tea of the day! I really like this. I’m not typically a rooibos fan, but if it’s dressed up right I’ll drink it, and this is delicious. Like eating a maple donut but not as sweet. As I’ve said before I’m not a big fan of sweetened tea, and this is just about right for me. A little sweetness without tasting like I just poured some sugar in my mouth.

My partner just tried a sip and said “I want pancakes”.

Ha ha, I used to pour sugar in my mouth all the time. =P

I think they call them pixie sticks… little sticks of nothing but sugar….

Nik

OMG I remember those! I haven’t had those since I was a kid. I used to love their tart sweetness. Nowadays I skip the middleman and go right for the raw sugar. :D

Claire

I had a sweet tooth when I was a kid, but for some reason the older I get the more I like savory foods!

Nik

I’m getting to be the same way, Claire, but in my case, it’s selective. For example, I can’t tolerate the heavy sweetness of soda (not even the natural/good kind) anymore, but I’ll go through a slice of pie (or cake, or cheesecake, or an eclair…you get the idea) in no time at all. =] (Great, now I want all those bad-for-me things.)

Claire

I can’t eat gluten anymore, so it tends to limit desserts at least!

Bio

I mostly drink straight tea, and some of my favorites are green teas and oolongs. I almost always have some sencha and tieguanyin in my tea cupboard (and if I run out, awesome, an excuse to buy tea). I do like some flavored teas, but can’t stand really sugary stuff so if it’s very sweet I probably won’t like it. I can’t drink milk so all my reviews are of tea without milk and sugar!
I’ve been getting into puerh the last few months.

Outside of Steepster I’m an English Lit major, and will FINALLY be graduating after the Fall 2013 semester. After that I plan on applying for graduate school to obtain a Master’s in Library Science. Currently I work as a student assistant in the Archives and Special Collections department of my school’s library.
I also like reading (of course) and playing video games when I have time for them.

I’m happy to send samples to anyone in the US or Canada. Just ask. :)
