My coworker gave me a sample of this one, as I gave her a few samples, and she wanted to return the favour.

I lost this one for a short bit. I couldn’t find it anywhere. I looked high and low and I thought maybe my cat had stolen it. And I was worried. The one cat we have use to be a barn cat for a bit. He is very much a “hunt and kill; eat whatever you can” kind of a cat. He has stolen cadbury cream eggs from me (thankfully I got those back asap), whole packages of english muffins, bread… just about any food that cat can get his little teeth on, he’ll take. Which, when I saw this one was missing, I was worried! I was scared that maybe he had taken it for a snack, and being there is chocolate in it, I was concerned he’d get sick. Silly kitty…

So, my coworker was going to give me another sample, but I finally found it! It was hidden away with some bulk barn purchases (I think I threw it in there so the cat wouldn’t get it).

I love the smell of this tea. It is nice and warm, yet, it has some zing to it.

Taste-wise… I don’t know if I really enjoy this tea or not. I think it might be the cinnamon… I don’t know. I wasn’t blown away by this one. But, I do want to state too before I review the taste more, that I really haven’t had a good week at work. I keep getting ‘talked to’ ‘cause of things that either I’ve done or things that they think I’m doing and I’m not actually doing…
Anyway, so I might have been a bit distracted when I tried this tea today. I wasn’t crazy head-over-heels for it yet, but I should try this one again when I can sit at home, either at my comforting writing desk or the soft couches in the living room and really take some time to soak this one in.

I might be placing an order next week for my b-day (Thurs!), so I might go ahead ask for another sample of this one with my order if I can do that… Given too… haha I might get this one for my b-day as I’ve told a few people that’s what I’m hoping to get.

As a side note… my steepster b-day (my join date – Oct. 23) is coming up too! I may have to have something special that day also!

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
