Drinking the last of my sample of this tonight, and I’m sad to see it go! I noticed tonight that if I sip on this right away it tastes a bit odd to me, almost kind of bitter, but as it cools it develops the velvety chocolate I loved last time.

I’m doing homework at 10:15 on a Saturday because all my professors decided to be “nice” and make everything due the week before Thanksgiving break instead of after. What is there to do except sip chocolate tea while writing literary analysis?

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. :)
