drank Starry Night by Art of Tea
1196 tasting notes

Well hopefully I can post this without getting kicked out or power going out. Between all the errors of Steepster (coming back 2 hours later and seeing the dashboard is busted — WHY AM I NOT SURPRISED?) and how absolutely hopeless I feel regarding one of the traveling tea boxes, I’m pretty much going on a steepster hiatus. I’ll probably come post notes every so often just for brand new stuff I’m trying, like this.

Let’s be real here, the draw of this one is the white tea stars. I’m not sure what they really add to the tea other than the possibility of feeling like you messed it up.

The vanilla isn’t bad, but this tea is not that good once it starts to cool. The vanilla starts to taste artificial, and the base starts to become bitter. When it’s still hot though, it’s delicious. It wouldn’t ever replace Vanille des Iles for me as a favorite vanilla tea. I may have to try it with milk and sugar to see if it gets that vanilla frosting taste too.

just a little thing to add, please keep Adairsville, GA, in your thoughts. A tornado rolled through there earlier and one person died. Their poor dog was outside and he was rescued but gosh the picture I saw of him still in his dog house, poor baby. There were cars just absolutely flipped and crushed on the highway and 18 wheelers overturned. Scary stuff.

I should rephrase it to more of a biweekly type visit rather than all day every day. And you guys are always welcome to add me on Facebook (right now I am a caveman hockey player don’t mind me) https://www.facebook.com/kimisicecream

Ah, I’m sorry the tea box is bothering you so much. :/ It should have been fun. It doesn’t even seem like it would be worth it to eventually get the box with all you’ve been through with it. I will miss seeing your tasting notes!

MOMO, don’t leave us!!!
No point getting upset over those TT boxes, they sort of took on a life of their own, right? I expect Box A will arrive here tomorrow. I’ll enjoy it, & then forward it to you. PM me your address, ok? I’m friending you on FB.

I think we all need a break every once in a while. Just don’t stay away from us too long. :)

I received my lip balm and the mail today and I couldn’t be more happy with it – every flavor I’ve tried is perfect!! I’m allergic to everything and picky about my lip glosses, so I was thrilled to hear about your Etsy store. I’ll definitely be ordering from you again. :)

momo

Yay I’m so glad you like them! I’ll be making more new flavors soon since I got a bunch of supplies in the other day.
