Thanks Ze_Teamaker! The leaves are so pretty! The aroma of this tea kind of reminds me of Dragon Pearls with it’s sweet notes. The flavor is just as delicious. It has the boldness of a strong black tea but has sweet, dark chocolate and caramel notes of a warm, fresh baked caramel brownie. Mmmmm I’m so happy I got to try this! Thanks again!

Today is finally my day off so I decided to have a minor sipdown and get some tea out of my way to make room for new ones :] I LOVE this rooibos. It’s absolutely perfect and a great start to my busy(but relaxing) day!

I figured out the secret to getting the creamy vanilla flavor! The water temperature was 204* and steeped it for 3 minutes. It turned out SO good.

So I just picked up this nifty little electric kettle and it’s amazing! It heated the water perfectly to 175°. For some reason I feel like I’m getting a little bit of a sweeter flavor from this. It’s delicious.

MMmm I finally tried this one again and it’s much better :] water to matcha ratio is fixed so I’m able to get nice little tart notes of cranberry instead of watered down smartie. Mmmmmmmmmmm :]

Today is a matcha kind of day :] This smells so good! It kind of has a hint of the cherry medicine smell to it but that was expected.. The flavor reminds me of cherry tootsie pops or a cherry sucker :] Oh my goodness. This is good.

drank Lime Gelato by DAVIDsTEA

I received this as a sample in my last order. Well I needed a nice pick-me-up yesterday (yes I’m back logging) so I thought I’d give this a try. The smell was slightly tart and was so delicious! The flavor was full of creamy, lime goodness. The only complaint I had was that it left a bad aftertaste. I would definitely order this again :]

This sounds really good! I love all things lime. I’m thinking I need to get a DT order together in the near future!

This morning has been interesting… I’m attempting to make a raw tomato bread and my blender wasn’t big enough to hold all of the ingredients so I had to get creative and blend everything separate. Ugh. Let’s hope it turns out.
I needed something to relax with and for me matcha is as relaxing as it gets. I love sipping out of my little bowl :] This smells amazing! It’s more of a raspberry candy smell though, like most of Red Leaf’s fruit matchas. The flavor is light and sweet. To me the raspberry is very juicy and natural tasting. Very nice :] The sweetness of the fruit blends so well with the matcha. MMMmmm :]

Bio

I love camping, longboarding, listening to and making music, hiking, yoga, cooking, the color blue, The Beatles, and of course the wonderful world of tea!
My journey with tea started about a year and a half ago. Since then I’ve learned a lot and that my favorites include oolongs, pu-erhs, and silver needle. I love a good dessert tea but I have found recently that I’m craving pure teas more and more! I look forward to learning a lot more from my fellow Steepsters :]
