Finished off my tin and broke into a new package left from last year because the day I am without this tea is a day I don’t want to ever face. Holiday season is nearly here, y’all!

Managed to get half a cup of this before demon child, aka JiJi, knocked it over XD. Ah well, that’s what the second steep is for, right?

This is a sipdown simply because we have 500 grams of it and need to drink that down before it goes off. My life, it is a hard one XD. This is, as always, delicious. It’s one of a few chocolate teas I genuinely enjoy.

So I’ve gone through nearly 100g of this tea and today I had my first bad cup. To be fair, it was also my first time trying it hot and I do sweeten with stevia, so that may have figured in here, so I’m not adjusting my rating at all. But it was painfully artificial and not good at all.

I have 23g I want to get rid of, if you’d like it.

Thank you, but I’ve got another 200 grams waiting for me <3

My other breakfast tea, this is one I will always try to keep in stock. I just love the energy boost and orange tastyness.

This was one of my two morning cuppas. I make my hot tea two cups at a time because I drink it lukewarm and it can take forever to cool. I’m trying to do one sipdown and one standard so I’m not just focusing on one or the other. This is in the sipdown pile just because it’s a few years old and it just needs to be finished up. It’s very, very good, but not one I’m likely to restock, due to my issues with Harney and Sons a few years ago.

Anyway, this is one of my favorite breakfast teas, nice and strong with a gentle fruity note.

Sounds nice!

Bio

Formerly aisling of tea, now you can call me ele .

“You can forgive a murder, but never a mistake while preparing tea.” Chinese proverb

Labels? Here you go: Femme, Wife, Lesbian, Homemaker, Happy. Don’t forget tea fanatic!

New label as of May, 2015: Diabetic. I’m using tea to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings and keep me hydrated without hurting my system or messing with my blood sugar.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have five! live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), a tuxedo cat (and the only boy in the house) Prince Erik Darien Darjeeling (JiJi) and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put stevia in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
