I received this sample with my recent storage tin purchase from Silver Tips Tea. I didn’t even know they sent samples with purchases, yay!

This is a really good tea (although I haven’t tried very many to compare). It has a rich, creamy taste to it…no bitterness at all when I think of black teas. Very little “dust” left in the cup (compared to my Teavana teas I have). It would pry taste even more amazing with honey or a little sugar. I don’t have a thermometer or fancy kettle to tell me the temperature at the moment so the water I use just comes straight from my “coffee” maker, lol.

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

I live in Boise, Idaho…home of the Boise State Broncos:) I’m a newbie to the tea scene and trying to get my hands on various kinds of tea to try them all. I enjoy reading, listening to music, and watching various television shows.
My current TV obsession is Parks and Recreation:-D I also love The Middle, Modern Family, Simpsons, The Neighbors, Vampire Diaries, and Game of Thrones.

My Steepster rating details ….

75-100 : Pretty awesome stuff, will pursue many a cup.

50-75 : Decent, will brew more in the future just not all the time

25-50 : Ehhh…Doesn’t really stand out, probably won’t pursue another cup unless I have to use up the supply.

1-25 : UGH! Won’t drink again. Enough said.

I seem to be a harsh critic when it comes to tea tasting it seems! A tea that has gotten rave reviews doesn’t seem to suit me. I just have to keep trying everything out there to find out what does! Thanks for all your insight Steepsters!
