Wowwwww…. This was so good. I wasn’t sure what to expect but sure enough it’s maple pecan!

I admit the only other two oolongs I’ve ever tried were green rolled up leaves so I was surprised to see these were black, that just speaks to my inexperience though.

This was a great tea, sweet enough but with a little additional maple syrup it was mind blowingly good. I’m pretty much Buddy the Elf’s slightly less elfin little sister in that I could probably drink maple syrup from the bottle, so take that with a grain of salt, no such thing as too much maple.

I am interested to see how I can get 11 cups out of my little 1oz bag though! Feels like half of that in order to get a good flavor (I’m using Davidstea’s perfect spoonful)

I would reorder this as it’s really well done!

Me too. Totally and it’s WAY too late to make it!

it’s so weird, I could drink tea RIGHT before bed (literally IN bed) and it doesn’t keep me up, however if I have a cup of coffee at 3pm I am tossing and turning for hours!!

I can’t even eat chocolate passed 4pm. I made chocolate cupcakes today and I know I’ll be up until 1am.

BoxerMama

Because I’ve obviously eaten two already. lol

Haha it was worth it I’m sure!

Hello!

So here’s where I am now. I had jumped head first into the world of teas after Davidstea opened in my city a number of years ago. I gave up coffee and became a huge tea freak. From there I joined Steepster and started ordering teas online like a madwoman (not that anyone here would know what that’s like…)

I was swappin’ up a storm and drinking like 6-7 cups a day and I had this tremendous stash to get through…..then. I got pregnant in Spring 2013 and my baby played a funny little joke on me by turning me into someone who had zero interest in drinking or even smelling most teas. I wanted only coffee all the time which was hilarious because of course you can’t really do more than a cup a day when you’re pregnant.

Anyway. In December 2013 I had my baby girl, and now I’m on maternity leave and though I still LIVE (I cannot emphasize that enough) for my morning cup of coffee (or two…), I am trying to get myself excited about tea again, because I have TONS.

So my mission, which I choose to accept, is to first sip down all the samples I have, sent to me last year by lovely Steepsterites, pre-baby.

Here’s what I love (or I did before, and am trying to again):

Butiki teas in general because the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base

Harney and Sons Paris is my all time favorite tea.

Mariage Freres and Kusmi are also on my awesome list.

I love creamy earl greys.

Also have an appreciation of oolong.

I have a mega stash of super flavored teas to work through, or I may try to sell them if I decide they are no longer for me. The sip downs will determine!

I love swapping!
Please note my Cupboard contains everything I have including minuscule samples of teas so it is not intended to be reflective of what I have available for swap…

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
