Mmmmm… yum.

For me, I needed the cream and sugar (or technically, the splenda and 2%) but once I had that – OH! The mouthfeel was much more creamy than the tiny splash of 2% could account for and the bergamont overtones were perfect.

One troublesome thing for me – since joining steepster I’ve been trying to enjoy more of the whole tea experience. Smells and visuals all add to our overall enjoyment of the tea. This smells great, but the color – it’s a little odd. It’s a greeny brown rather than a nice warm brown. I found the color a little off-putting. If you care about such things – I’d recommend an opaque pot and glass. :)

Celestial Seasonings’ Peppermint is a really off-putting color as well! Murky brown rimmed with murky green. Ew!

Also, a bunch of us had A&D Damn Fine Tea today!

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
