Ok, I have to bump the rating up again since I am turning around to really like this tea as a milk tea. It is nice and smooth and just comforting. It might turn into my school time tea for lunches.

Had for dinner with milk. Nice and warm. Apparently it is going to be one of my basic teas to drink at school when I want something warm.

Had this for lunch with a little bit of milk. It was my last bag and I am a little sad that it is now gone.

It is amazing that when I say I’m not going to drink a type of tea again, I try it again for good measure. It still didn’t taste like anything but I prepared it with milk. It made a pretty good plain milk tea. Something to have when you want something simple. Rating boost.

I think I finally found a Grey that is a good day to day Grey. It is nice and smooth. It isn’t rough at all but it isn’t weak either. It is just a nice well-rounded tea. I am sad that I don’t have more of it.

This was a little disappointing. It didn’t taste like much to me. It was nice and warm but it made the back of my throat dry. It was also a little bitter so I sweetened it with a little sweet red grape juice. Just a couple of drops out of my biggest grape.

I don’t think I’ll drink this again because it just didn’t taste like much.

I had two cups of this for dinner. I had them in a school coffee mug which is a little smaller than my normal mug so it was strong. The first one I had plain and the second one I had with some milk. The milk mellowed out the flavors but drinking it strong was an interesting experience.

This was one of the teas that my friend gave me. I actually made it for breakfast this time. I tried a few sips of it plain and it was nice. It was a stronger flavor but the flavor did not punch you in the face. It was more of a “hey, it’s time to wake up now” buzz.

I put a little bit of milk in it, just enough to turn the tea from a nice rich brown to a nice toffee color. The milk let the flavors mix better and made for a smoother cup.

Overall, I really like this tea and I wish I had more of it to drink.

I like Steepster, but I find that I come and go as I please. I might spend months on here and then disappear for no apparent reason. It depends on how busy my life is.

I have been moving solidly into the loose leaf tea territory lately and loving it. I have a french press I like brewing my teas in and I have all of my teas straight with no additions the first time I try it.

I like to try everything and I am starting to like everything. I love black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, yerba mate,and honeybush. I’m still not the biggest fan of roobios, but that is probably because I haven’t found the right brand yet.

If you are curious about more than just my tea selection, I am on multiple sites.
