Merry (belated) Christmas and a happy New Year! I’m still lurking around here somewhere. I really want to review my teas more again so I can figure out which ones to keep in the cupboard and which to not.

Anyways, I’m finishing up a small sample sized bag that I got almost a year ago from the TO tea festival. Up until this cup, I’ve quite enjoyed this tea. Didn’t have any issues with it and really loved it. Nice and malty which is what I enjoy.
Today, I’m not really enjoying it. It’s probably because I forgot to time my steep.
I had the loose-leaf version of this one. So, yes it’s good. Today’s cup wasn’t…
On the whole, I don’t think I would get this one again. I have others I enjoy a bit more.

I’m not on Steepster much these days, but every so often I come back and write a review. I want to get back here more often as I do love this website.

Anyways, I went to the shop that sells these beteas only a couple of weeks ago. I LOVED it!! It was such a great little place.

I picked this one up because they said it would have chocolate notes to it. And I think I get a little of it… but either way, I really like it. There’s something very nice about it. It reminds me of the Nepal Black tea from Davidstea. It’s got that same smoothness to it. So yummy!

Enjoying this one again today. I love the almonds in it today. I didn’t notice this last time, but today I do. It’s adding a nice nuttiness to this.

You know you love a tea when you drink 250g of it in a month… then get another 200g and I can see it lasting less than that time…

My goodness. I love this tea. This one and Guava Cadabra make me so happy. I’ve probably had about the same amount of Guava. Oh goodness.. so much tea…



hahah i feel you on that one with some of my fav teas!


Yeah I can’t believe I drank so much of this one so quickly

I love this tea, but I don’t think I love this one as a latte quite yet… Maybe I just make it too strong? And maybe I should just steep it for 2-3 minutes instead of the usual 4 mins. But as a hot tea… YUM! This tea is still a favourite.

I can’t believe I’ve had this tea so long now! Yikes! But it’s still so amazing and still tastes fine. I’ve been drinking this one before bed for a few weeks now so that I can relax and I think it’s doing the job. There has been a lot of stress in my life lately and I’m glad for something like this. I will definitely be getting this one again once i’m out of it.

I don’t care for this one anymore. I think I have just come to realize I don’t care for Mate teas really… Oh well..

I’m a 30-something-year-old aspiring writer. I’ve written several short stories that I’m looking to get published someday soon.

I work as a paginator (I do page layout for our local weekly newspaper) and absolutely love it! I’m also an amateur photographer.
I’m the proud mommy of two sweet little boys! One born Feb. 3/15. He showed up 4.5 weeks early, but thankfully after a week in the hospital he’s great now. :)
The second one came just Monday evening at only 2 weeks early so he’s healthy and perfect!
Life just got so much more busy and crazy but I’m so excited.
I’m married to an absolute amazing man who “puts up” with my tea obsession.

It wasn’t until a few years after high school that I finally became interested in tea. I started with Orange Pekoe double double (milk not cream), and peppermint. Since that time, I’ve really opened up to other kinds of tea and I’ve well… I’ve kind of just went nuts since then.

I don’t drink much bagged tea anymore. It’s mostly loose leaf in my cupboard. The only except are a couple that were given to me and they sound too good!

I would have to say my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal, white and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too).

Green teas, pu’erh, and matcha are starting to grow on me but I’m very picky about them still. I am finding I like pu’erh tea cakes much better than loose. And with matcha I much prefer flavoured ones over straight.

I still don’t really care for mate teas but there a couple that are the exception to that.

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
