This is the tea I always wanted this tea to be. Short steep time, not-quite-boiling water, perfection. Nearly bitter, but not quite, I found it almost too strong and my wife found it a little weak. This is not a tea we were destined to share. But it’s so good when done properly…I might have to seek this one out more often. The creamy vanilla always wins my heart. Bumping up the rating…you’ve earned it.

In other news, my brother is now on Steepster! Finally, eh? His name is dlonie, go follow him! Make him feel welcome ;)

That is one of my favorites, too! I think I’m finally finished flooding the “Explore” stream ;-)

I really liked this one. It is definitely going to be making an eventual appearance in much larger quantities in my home.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
