Ok – last review of the night! The morning was too chaotic to really enjoy any teas, and it’s only the last 2 hours of the night after TK is sleeping that I really get anything done.

I packed up 4 boxes though, so I get this as a reward before bed!

As soon as I poured it into my cup I was blown away by the rooibos smell. I’ve never noticed that before! But I could also smell the vanilla and the chai.

This is actually a pretty good non-caffeinated tea. It’s not as dark as a black blend would have been, but the vanilla makes it a tad creamy in my mind. I bet this would make a nice latte too. I’d recommend this to someone who wanted soemthing spicy in the evening! I think this is my favourite of the Persimmon samples I’ve had so far!

Also, I know non-caffeinated might not be a real word, but it makes more sense to me than decaffeinated ‘cause that implies it HAD caffeine. Anyway… that’s why I did that. :D

And now I’ve stared at the word “caffeine” long enough that it no longer looks like a recognizable word. I’m going to bed pretty quick.

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)
