Last night my husband left me to go camping by himself in a nearby state park. So, obviously, my night was consumed with cupcakes and a chick flick marathon. My morning, however, was filled with this COURAGEOUS, gorgeous tea.

I steeped this according to Verdant’s instructions for the initial steep. Mmm… was this magical. I may be bias, because I am definitely a black tea girl. BUT – this was absolutely fabulous. Hints of fruit that are infiltrated by a deep grittiness. I know what you are thinking, but – yes- it’s remarkable. So much so I’m contemplating naming my first born after it… whenever that may be.

Ok – I went too far.

Back to the tea- the first steep was much grittier than the second. The second steep startled me with a liberal splurge of caramel with a lessened fruity aftertaste.

When my husband pulled in the drive-way in the morning, I was sitting on the front stoop savoring this scrumptious cup of tea. I handed it over for him (the COFFEE drinker) to partake. His first words were, “Can I use these leaves to steep it again?” :) :)

Thank you Steepster for ultimately being a source of marriage counseling. My spouse and I are enjoying commencing about our cherished hot beverages.

Happy Steeping.

Fun review, Lesli! I also enjoyed this tea :)
I’m glad to hear you & your hubby have similar tastes in tea. Tony dislikes almost everything I drink, & I’m not real fond of the teas he likes either, but, in the famous words of Kahlil Gibran, “Let there be spaces in your togetherness” or something like that…

Hi! I’m a midwest girl with an immense appetite for tea. As a nurse, I am well aware of the hundreds of pharmaceuticals available to cure diseases and resolve symptoms. Even after all this knowledge, I believe that tea remains the ultimate medication.

Even better than the health benefits tea withholds, I love the taste and the feeling that I endure while sipping on this irreplaceable warm beverage.

Tea holds a great place in my heart as well, because it is the reason my husband and I met. He was working at a local coffee shop as a barista. If my craving for loose leaf had been replaced by another vice on that day – who knows where I would be now. He even pretended to enjoy tea for the first two months we were dating in order to impress me. Oh, how amazing.
