Oh…so you want to be center of attention!? Oh…you want to be the leading man? Well, let’s just see what you’ve got, sir!

This has a bit of nose trickery going on! At first sniff it reminds me of a chai. 2nd sniff it changes it’s mind and resembles a perfect wintery-type blend. Then…just when you think you’ve figured it out…the individual components smack you in the face! You are quite bold, mister! I can smell Cinnamon, Vanilla, and almost a buttery-creme in there with a bit of nuttiness.

The color is a rich brown.

My first sip was very slippery…yes, slippery! Smooth and buttery cream-like tones. The after taste is reminding me of Hazelnut. The 2nd taste…still slippery with the cinnamon popping out more. As I continue to sip I inhale at the same time to be presented with an ever-so-slight smokey scent that passes just like a breeze.

This is an interesting cup to say the very least.

Almost a competition for the leading role? Perhaps. I’m so happy Doulton let me “bogart” some of this from her stash! (har, har)

Teahee! Fantastic note :) Doulton sent me some of this too and it’s one I’m dying to try. Okay, so almost everything she sent me I’m dying to try. ;) But between this one and the other smoky teas she sent – whoowee does my bedroom smell awesome!

Btw if you or your followers that are reading this got a minute of free time, i’m ordering some tea from the states (aunt flying over fro the summer) that cant normally ship to my country or they do for huge fees (only Adagio teas i can get rather easily). Could you recommend me a couple of teas that are made by USA based tea companies? Some teas that are quite particular and cant be found everywhere…
Thanks in advance ;)

Malomorgren…Sure! I can…I’ll ponder that for a little bit. Have you tried posting in the discussion/forums??? I’m sure TONS of others will respond if you post a new topic in there, too!!!

malomorgen

oh ya that would prolly be a good place to ask lol

Rabs

I second TeaEqualsBliss: I’ll ponder as well, but I also highly encourage you to post your inquiry to the Discussions. I was scared the first time posting a topic there, but the help from the entire community has been invaluable! :)

Can we FEEL the Steepster LOVE!? :P

Rabs

ROFL!!!!!

malomorgen

lol it’s on the discussions now. i’m still both tea and Steepster newbie ;) figured it’s smart to ask the one that drinks teas all day long every day hehe

TeaEqualsBliss

:) Thanks!!!! Sure…I will PM you and see what kind of things you are thinking and see what I might be able to suggest or help out with.

malomorgen

thanks whole bunches :) you can see what i got lately in my cupboard. it’s been very diverse and exploring path. from quite yummy to some that were barely drinkable. but i like to try anything. for example still didnt find a pu ehr that i actually like but i dont give up that easy. i’m not very much into very fruity teas but some are good. i love black teas, like to drink plain green and oolong, adore some whites too (adagio’s silver needle my fav) – those i kinda almost prefer without blending – just trying out different kinds of them.
but then again, anything goes at this point really ;)
pure jasmine tea is the only one i couldnt drink. idk why. hate that smell brrr. but when jasmin is a minor part of the blended tea then i dont mind it…

TeaEqualsBliss

HEY!!! COOL! :P I have recently obtained a Vanilla Mint Pu-erh from Rishi that I hope to try for the first time later today…so be on the look out! I, too, have struggled with Pu-erh’s!!!! Haven’t really found any I LOVE yet…ya know!?

malomorgen

i do however like raw pu-ehr way better than ripe. i’m certain there is one for me out there. gl with your search. i’m keeping an eye on your logs as usual ;)
