Oh yum, that’s good… It took me a couple tries to get the steeping parameters just right, but now that I did, this is one tasty cup of tea.

It’s roasty and buttery with a touch of caramel-like sweetness. The black base is very smooth, and it presents no bitterness when steeped for a short time. Following another Steepster’s advice (thanks, LiberTEAS!) I added a pinch of sea salt to the second half of the cup. Yup, there’s the popcorn!

Steeping:
tea amount: 1.25 tsp
water volume: 8 oz
temp: 208 (F)
time: 2.5 min

ETA: Re-steep (at 3min) with almond milk tasted super buttery and dessert-like.

Preparation
2 min, 30 sec

Hmm, I’ll try these parameters. I haven’t been able to get them right.

Bio

A tea fanatic who works in the tech sector, I purchase most of my tea online. The numerical ratings are to help me remember which teas I should re-order. 85+ means it’s worth a re-purchase. (If I ever get through all of the new ones I want to try!)

It’s pretty obvious from my tealog, but I have special place in my heart for flavored blacks and good rooibos. I also love oolongs, but apparently have expensive taste in that area, so I don’t purchase them too often. Learning to appreciate green tea, but not a fan of overly vegetal ones. Whites make a great iced tea.

I love to try new teas and will sample most anything once. Although I’ll usually pass on Earl Grey or super floral blends.

I drink my tea with no additions, unless otherwise noted in the review.
