Late Sunday night I went on a shopping spree and snagged 7 teas from Murchie’s.com. They showed up today! This blend was one that a friend bought for me a few years ago so I thought I would start here.

I’m staring at Murchie’s description while I sample it. Is this a “strong flavourful cup?” Well, the first few sips taste like… black tea. But half a cup later and I can detect hints of smoke, and the rest of the blends mentioned, although I couldn’t tell you which flavour is what type of black tea. It’s good though. No cream or sugar required, although I’m certain I would enjoy it that way too.

Can’t wait to see how this compares to the rest of the black teas I purchased. I imagine my ratings will jump around as I get familiar with the flavours. I guess I can see why some people wait before reviewing.

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.


Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a little girl and a devoted bf, two cats, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, fandom!, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

I keep trying to learn languages on Duolingo and failing. I’m currently failing Esperanto. :P

1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
