Holy yumminess! This has been sitting in my swap drawer for ages and I didn’t know it was there. Luckily Since I’ve been going through all my swaps I found it hidden under some other teas. I brewed it with a few extra pearls in it and my first sip was surprisingly weak. I put the leaves back in for another minute and the result was crazy. So dark chocolaty, seriously, I don’t know how this is an unflavored tea. Then there is also a hint of sweetness like raisins, but not syrupy. Just good. I’m really enjoying this and I’m on steep 3! Thanks KallieBoo!!

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
