I ran out, and eventually bought $4.32 more of it, which works out to about 100g. Score! Made it iced today, and while I like it better hot, it’s still damn tasty tea. Sweet anise today mostly, with some hints of sasparilla.

Flavors: Anise, Root Beer, Smooth

Preparation
Iced 4 min, 45 sec 4 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML
OMGsrsly

Grabbed a bag of this while at the Lupicia store in SF, and I’m so glad I did. Very much coffee-like, with notes of burnt sugar in there. I don’t get honey, but I’m cool with that!

drank Chocolate Mint by Simpson & Vail
1474 tasting notes

Try #1 got botched by BCAA showing up to jump my (now-former) car, so now I’m drinking try #2. Dunno what I did this time around (as opposed to last time), however I’m getting chocolate juiciness with a hint of mint. It’s really delicious today!

drank Cherry Almond by Market Spice
1474 tasting notes

Smooth and sweet, it’s like a lightly cherry sweetened marzipan. Is it great? Uh… well, I’ll be fine finishing off the $0.50 of this that I got. :) I think that someone who really loves cherries and almonds would find this quite delightful.

Flavors: Cherry, Marzipan, Smooth

This one surprised me. Tartness from the cranberry and smooth mint made a nice combination, one I’ve yet to find elsewhere. Was teabag, and red rooibos at that, but I think I’ll grab more the next time in Seattle, it was good enough to try again.

Flavors: Cranberry, Mint, Smooth, Tart

drank Spicy Seattle Chai by Market Spice
1474 tasting notes

I was really excited when I saw, “spicy” as part of the title, because frankly, I loves me some spicy tea! (Yes Kapha from TeaGschwendner, I’m thinking of you fondly here). I grabbed a tiny bit – $0.52 worth to be exact – and now wish I’d grabbed more. Most of the heat from the spice comes from extra ginger, which I LOVE, and the rest is a pretty smooth, delicious chai.

Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Pepper, Spicy

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Profile

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
