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.

I miss this. I haven’t had the finances for this for quite some time.

I feel if I don’t buy this tea, I will never be a man…

I’m very much woman and love it though.

drank Emperor's Red by Premium Steap
1015 tasting notes

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.

drank Irish Breakfast by Twinings
1015 tasting notes

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!!!

Boiling 7 min, 45 sec

drank Irish Breakfast by Twinings
1015 tasting notes

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!!

Preparation

Of grocery store teas, my favorites are this one and Lady Grey by the same company! Even the decaf version of this is nice.

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.

This is my favorite Earl!

It is quickly becoming my favorite also! I used to love really loud Earls, but this one is showing me that less is definitely more.

drank Malted ChocoMaté by 52teas

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.

Preparation
8 min or more

Bio

Formally known as mrawlins2

I am a former coffee drinker turned tea lover.

Black tea is probably my favorite type of tea, but I rather enjoy most types… I’m even developing a taste for pu-erh.

Rating Scale:
0-10: This tea is either flavorless or just plain undrinkable. I will avoid these teas in the future.

11-20: I was only able to make it through a few sips before pouring the tea out.

21-30: I may have been able to make it through the first cup but the thought of having another has me cringing.

31-40: Teas in this range are not horrible, but nothing I would seek out in the future.

41-60: Would drink if offered, but would not purchase for myself.

61-70: Okay, nothing special

71-80: Enjoyable, but I have to be in the mood for these. Probably would purchase if I found a really great price.

81-90: Pretty good tea, will probably be one of my favorites.

91-95: These teas are really excellent. I wouldn’t necessarily run out and buy more of these (just because there are so many teas out there that I haven’t tried), but I would miss this tea.

96-99: Terrific, very impressive.

100: This special rating is reserved for teas that are absolutely perfect in my opinion. I will only give out a rating of 100 to one tea per category (Earl Grey, unflavored black, dessert tea, Irish Breakfast, etc). These are teas that I really want to have around.

Perfect Teas so Far:

Earl Grey: Saint Isaac’s Blend (Russian Earl Grey) from Upton

Dessert Tea: Marco Polo from Mariage Freres

Unflavored Black: Emperor’s Red from Premium Steap
