I went shopping. Got a huge load of teas that are traveling my way from the states and UK and I’m not buying more unless its on a travel or till I’m done drinking these. Which could take looooong time.
OK now that I’ve made my decision public (lol don’t make me want new ones pls) here it goes…

Smells amazing. As amazing as it gets…
Like good black tea + good booze + coffee/cocoa smell… mmmmm.
I even made some for my boss :)

OK i might have over-steeped it cuz i forgot to take it out while sharing my joy :D Lets see…
Tastes good :D Strong black tea with aftertaste that well tastes like Irish whiskey drinks. Its bit bitter cuz i over-steeped. But good. Wonder how you all would rate these teas – still feeling very n00bish while giving ratings. This one is staying at my workplace. Need it to wake me up…

EDIT Steeped it several times with adding just a bit of fresh leaves. It’s still good just milder. Like that too…

Preparation

Don’t fear the ratings — you can always go to the “Tea Ratings” section of your info and adjust accordingly. I love that page because I can make the rating exactly what I feel it should be and it makes little changes over time easier :)

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…

Rating system (i’ll try to use it from now on):
