Sipdown! I had this in a try me pack. I like the size of Della Terra’s samples…enough to enjoy a few cups, but not too much. This tea took a little time to grow on me and give me that buttery bake-y flavor that I was hoping for, instead of the plain cinnamon tea I tasted in the first cup. I would definitely drink it again.

On another note, lately there has been an off smell to any tea I make in my perfect mugs. I thought maybe it was the water, so I used the filtered water from the fridge, but I still had it. Now I’m thinking it’s the newer dish soap I’ve been using. It’s a more environmentally friendly dish soap, but if this keeps up, I may have to go back to the other brand. Bummer. I really hope this doesn’t mess up my tasting of the Butiki teas I’m supposed to get in the mail today!

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! :)
