I nearly just steeped my Laoshan Black and Cacao in the vinegar I’d had in the kettle for cleaning. Eek. Thank goodness I caught that just in time.

I’m on my resteep of 2 parts Laoshan Black and 1 part Cacao. It really just accentuated the chocolate notes in Laoshan Black, which was delightful. I’m getting dangerously low on Cacao though, I really wish my HI order would ship already. I’m trying to be patient, but it’s not working out so well.

Wow. Sounds like a sweet combo! I need to clean my kettle out, thanks for the reminder heh

Courtney

The hard water out here drives me nutty, I’m constantly vinegar-ing haha!

Kittenna

Oh man. That would have been disgusting!

Courtney

Haha thank goodness I caught it. Phew.

Cavocorax

Wow. That’s an interesting combo! And I hope your order ships soon. They need to get quicker at that…

Sil

They need to stop doing 4509834509438584739 things and get a few down right first. All of these delays is part of why I haven’t bothered to place an order yet…

Cavocorax

Yeah, that is pretty annoying. :|
I reviewed a tea after a purchase and now I have a 20% off coupon, which expires in a month. That’s a very sneaky way to entice me. But I don’t want to wait 2 weeks for it to show up when I’m in the same city!

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, yoga, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug!

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs, rooibos (specifically red, I’m more open to green), honeybush, and matés are not my favourite. I tend to avoid them altogether unless others find them so amazing it would be a travesty to not at least try.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
