I woke up in a fairly bad mood this morning: my computer problems still haven’t been solved (although a solution is in the works), and I woke up to learn that I’d been locked out of my Gmail account because of some “suspicious activity”, but finally managed to prove my identity and logged back in. So far, no spam seems to have been generated from my address, but I suppose I’ll know soon enough.

So I felt as though only an unflavoured black would do. Breakfast tea, no deep thoughts. This seemed to fit the bill. I liked some sips more than others. Sometimes I got that hint of cardboard, but mostly it was a rather complex but undemanding cup of tea. I don’t quite know what I’m going to do with 8 oz of it though, so if anyone wants some, do let me know. All in all, a great breakfast tea, although if you don’t like Darjeeling, if might keep away from it since it’s rather prominent in the taste.

Boo! That sounds so frustrating! Glad to hear you’ve at least got a tea that suits what you’re looking for, and I hope things pick up!

Thanks! I think we’ve got a fix in the works, so hopefully I’ll be up and running sooner rather than later.

Well, it’s been slightly over six months since I’ve joined steepster, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about this community. Like many of you, I began my foray into the world of loose-leaf tea by discovering David’s Tea, and although I’ve ventured out and have discovered many other companies that I’m extremely fond of, there are still many of David’s teas that I hold close to my heart and I will always appreciate it as a starting point for my journey.

As for my preferences, I tend to prefer bold black tea, flavoured and unflavoured alike, and I almost always take my blacks with cream and sugar. This isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy a good, flavoured white though, and I’m slowly making my way through the incredibly confusing world of oolongs and greens. I am also not a fan of rooibos, although I am starting to suspect green rooibos may be ok, but you know how it is: when you’ve decided you detest a certain ingredient, you’ll notice it everywhere—perhaps even where it doesn’t exist!

Things other than tea: I’m engaged to be married to my best friend, and feel like the richest woman on the planet because of it. I am also a veracious reader, and I also happen to have an obsession with fragrances, and have amassed quite a collection, although it pales in comparison to some collections out there! As a result of this obsession, I also follow several fragrance blogs, and am always up for a chat about scent. I’m also almost completely blind, and this does indeed mean that I come complete with a guide dog, who unlike me, hales from the sunny California campus of Guide dogs for the Blind. I think I’ve rambled on long enough, but if there’s anything you’d like to know or if you just feel like chatting to someone, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.
