I picked this out for my morning tea today and I would say that it went surprisingly well with my spicy bell pepper omelette – the mint is helping to soothe my mouth after adding a bit too much hot sauce.

Another day, another delicious Earl Grey Supreme tea latte – I think a rating increase is in order!
After this morning I will be officially out of this delicious tea. Although this hasn’t been an everyday tea for me, or even a very often tea, when the mood hits, this tea is absolutely perfect. I’m not getting much of the white chocolate today, but I’m really enjoying the nutty flavor that is coming through.

Enjoying a quick cup of grown-up hot chocolate before work this morning and taking the rest in my Thermos for a mid-day fix. I love the kick that mate gives and I hope that it is enough to keep me going on my first day back after Spring Break!
I’m finishing up the last of my stovetop chai that I made earlier today and it is just awesomely spicy! This chai is my go-to chai for stovetop preparation each Saturday or Sunday morning.
This is a sad, sad day Steepsterites!! I am officially drinking the last of my Emperor’s Red this morning. I really do love this tea. I have been saving the last bit of leaves for awhile and they taste even better than I remember. I will definitely be restocking these sometime, but probably not in the next few weeks as I have a lot of tea right now to get through before buying more. Until then, I will be enjoying my tangy, roasty, cocoa love and enjoying each second of my multiple infusions.
Continuing on my St. Patrick’s Day tea celebration, I am now drinking a GREEN oolong! I haven’t had this in quite awhile and I am really enjoying the buttery, smooth caramel flavor of this tea. I know that the subsequent infusions of this tea are the best, so I’ll soon be trying out infusion #2.
I felt that it was only fitting to start St. Patrick’s Day with a big, super strong (steeped for 15 minutes….yea, I’m a bit crazy) mug of Irish Breakfast….not that I really needed an excuse to have this tea again today. As always, this tea is very pleasing with its malty, rich taste. The kick of caffeine isn’t too shabby either.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Steepsterites!!!

I woke up with a really terrible headache this morning so I thought a big dose of caffeine would be in order. I brewed this tea up double strength for about 10 minutes and then added a big of cane sugar and milk. This is really starting to help wrangle my throbbing head into submission. Super strong Irish Breakfast rocks!!
After a very nice mid-day nap, I wanted something smooth and light. This tea was the first thing that came to mind. I made this into a tea latte and it is really great like this. This is definitely a sophisticated, reflective sipping tea.
I love drinking this as my first tea of the day. I added a bit of cane sugar and a splash of dark chocolate creamer today and it creates a very grown-up hot chocolate taste. This is absolutely delicious! I’m definitely looking forward to the mate kick this morning.
I am sure this has caffeine, but for some reason Silver Needle is always comforting and relaxing. This tea tastes especially good tonight – very honeyed and smooth.
For some reason I was extremely tired today and fell asleep around 5pm…and didn’t wake up until around midnight. I definitely wanted some tea but didn’t necessarily want to stay up for the rest of the night so I pulled out the Vanilla Comoro. This tea is so smooth and flavorful, I almost can’t believe that it is a decaf tea. I’ve had so many poorly done decaf options, but this is so good!
This is yet another tea from the awesome JacquelineM! Thanks again!!
I’ve tried this sample previously, but didn’t pay enough attention to it as I took it as my work tea (it can be tough paying attention to anything when teaching 6 year olds). I am revisiting this tonight because I’ve wanted to try it and would like to know if it is worth the somewhat hefty (in my opinion) price tag that this tea carries.
While I’m sure this tea is amazing on it’s own, I am really enjoying it with a pinch of sugar and a splash of milk this evening. The first infusion had a definite malty earthiness which reminded me quite a bit of the Golden Bi Luo from Chicago Tea Garden. I was hesitant to try a second infusion because the first one was for such a long time, but I went ahead and gave it a shot.
I am glad that I tried this second infusion! The earthiness is not very noticeable now, but there is a honey sweetness that has taken over. I definitely think that my pinch of sugar has something to do with it, but I can tell there is a natural sweetness lurking below my additions. I am really loving this tea and it will be on my shopping list for sure!
I love that I can have this before bed and still sleep soundly. What a great treat while sitting in bed reading a good book!
After spending my day sipping on the lovely Organic Black with Coconut, I didn’t want to end my day of fine, delicious tea. I decided to pull this out because I feel that it is a very sophisticated tea. It is definitely not a “wake up” tea but more of a “quiet night with a good book” tea. I made this as a tea latte, which I didn’t think would work, and it is just so good and welcome tonight.
I took this as my tea of the day to work this morning and it was absolutely delicious!! I love the toasted coconut flavor and aroma of this tea. I am quite fond of the tea base used also, it is very smooth which blends well with the coconut. I really think this smells like GM’s Coconut Pouchong, but I like this WAY better!
A big thank you to JacquelineM for sending me a sample of this tea! It will now have to go on my shopping list.

Another tea from the box of goodies courtesy of JacquelineM! This is a greatly blended floral tea. I love how the jasmine and rose mix together while not clashing with the bergamot. Everything is just perfectly girly and perfect for a relaxing evening.
I needed a tea to help me get through the remainder of my homework today so I reached for one of my new favorites – courtesy of the amazing JacquelineM! I have to admit I was a bit surprised that she decided to share a bit of her main man with me, but I am sure glad that she did. I am taking this pot without additions and Thomas is strong, yet smooth. I am enjoying the rich, honey covered biscuit flavor of Thomas today and I am still not finding any astringency. I wish I had got on board with Thomas earlier when I could have secured an entire tin for myself. But since that was not meant to be, I’ll be cherishing what is left of my sample on special occasions.
