drank Brazillionaire by DAVIDsTEA
818 tasting notes

Officially on my four-day weekend! Woohoo! And between my Verdant order and my swap with Stephanie, I have lots of new tea to enjoy!

I had this tea to help wake me up this morning. I didn’t want to waste a new tea on my crappy morning taste buds, if you know what I mean! I’m also having allergies, so I’m hoping they won’t mess with my experience.

What’s interesting is that this tea was my favorite last fall when I started getting really into loose leaf, and I still like it, but it’s not wow-ing me. It’s deliciously nutty and raisin-y, but right now I feel like it’s better suited to the fall season. Maybe it’s just that I’ve been drinking more fruity teas lately.

Well, now to new teas. Which shall I try first? Oh, this is going to be a hard decision!!!

Another profile facelift! My tastes have changed a lot from when I first discovered loose leaf tea.

I can trace my tea journey back to October 2012, when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed high tea at An Afternoon to Remember, which has since closed.

I went through a period of wanting to try all the teas, and was really into flavored teas, especially dessert blacks, but my tastes have substantially changed over time.

I still enjoy the occasional flavored black or rooibos, but I’m more into unflavored black teas right now and recently, puerh. Chinese black teas are amazing…with their notes of chocolate or sweet potato, who needs a flavored tea? I had a much steeper learning curve when it came to puerh. I used to dump out cups of puerh for tasting like leather. Now, I am really enjoying them. I think it took finding good quality puerh and steeping them gong fu style to really enjoy them.

I also, on occasion, enjoy a good oolong, white, or green tea.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Mandala, Teavivre, Butiki, Golden Moon, Lupicia, and DavidsTea (for teaware mostly).

Just a note: I don’t rate my teas numerically because my iPad doesn’t like the scroll bar. Maybe someday that will change…hint hint, steepster! ;)

P.S. My profile picture is of one of my 2 cats, Holly, who is a little princess but very photogenic, and she loves boxes, including those that bring me tea! :)
