I’ve gotta say, I’m seriously getting addicted to Steepster. I’m starting to spend a loooot of time on it, and whenever I drink a new cup of tea now, one of the first things I think of is, “I gotta write about it on Steepster! :D” It’s also starting to come up in my regular conversations with people at work and home… What can I say, this place is great :D Anyway, onto the tea:

The description on the pouch basically says it all, “a typical breakfast tea, full-bodied and strong.” Honestly there isn’t much else to say about it. It’s a tea that plays it safe. If you like English Breakfast, you’ll enjoy it. But for people who want a nice breakfast tea that breaks away from the mould and tries something new, you won’t find it here.

Overall it is an enjoyable cup, but it’s not good enough to replace the tin of breakfast tea I get for free at work every week.

Hello! I’m a 24 year old Canadian, currently working at Starbucks while I figure out what I want to do with myself in life, haha.

Like most everyone else, I grew up with teabags, and then discovered the grass really WAS greener on the other side with loose leaf. Nowadays I drink nearly exclusively loose, but will drink a bagged tea if I don’t care what I’m having.

My favorite kind of tea is black, and unflavored, although I do enjoy an occasional dessert black. I like whites second best. I’ve recently been dipping my toes into honeybush tisanes, greens and oolongs.

My favorite vendors are Butiki Teas and Verdant Teas. Both have fantastic teas, above and beyond customer service (especially Butiki), and fair prices for their very high quality teas. I can’t recommend them enough.

Purely for tasting notes references, I don’t use any additives for my teas. Older tasting notes for blacks was with milk+sugar, and then with just milk. Whites, oolongs, greens and herbals are all drunk straight unless otherwise specified in the notes.
