Okay, this one’s going to be a quickie because it’s later than I’d like it to be and while we’re not getting pelted with snow for once [sorry, North Easters!] the wind is howling something fierce and my comforter is staring at me to the point that it’s becoming uncomfortable.

So with the wind threatening to shatter the window panes and several Physics problems peeling away at the layers of my brain, I brewed a nice hot cup of this and turned on some Iron and Wine.

I want to add at this time, though some of you may have seen this in the comments on Mike’s log, that I have discovered that a 7 minute steep time pretty much nullifies the caramel in this tea for me. For unknowable reasons, 5 minutes seems to suit it much better. Just a little note from my palate to yours.

So yes, this tea is decadent and delicious and it is also going down in my “Why I Love Steepster So Friggin’ Much” diary [it’s got Hello Kitty and a lock on it] because:

Dear Diary,

If I hadn’t found Steepster I would have never talked to teaplz and if I had never talked to teaplz I never would have gotten sent a sample of this tea and if I had never gotten a sample of this tea I never could have realized just how crazy delicious it is and bought four ounces just for me yay yay yay yay yay.

Oh, and oh my god Diary, John pushed me on the playground today and then he kissed me behind the monkey bars and now I think we’re boyfriend girlfriend.

Love,
Heather

Love you so HARD right now.

That sounds wrong. Anyway, YAY! I am glad that I could share the wonderful tea with you! At least something good came out of that mess of a package I sent you and Auggy!

@teaplz This tea could have made up for you sending me 12 pounds of Adagio’s Dragonwell. Serious.

@LENA Cooler than a polar bear’s backside! Seriously, that’s fantastic! Way to be, @Wombatgirl! I hope you enjoy it! I can’t stop putting @’s in front of people’s handles! Damn you, twitter.
