And here’s my 3/12. I don’t think it’s realistic to hit 12 by the end of the day but it’s fun to try! :)

This is a really nice Earl Grey. The marshmallow lends a vanilla sweetness to it that lingers long after each sip. It’s very creamy too. OMG

I’m going to have to re-steep this before I move on to the next!

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 30 sec

I really like the marshmallow in this one. I think it mellows out the citrus of the earl grey.

Sil, do you not like EGs at all? Even ones that don’t feel the need to smash a bergamot tree several times over your head, and then rub your face in it, just because well… EAHRL GREEEHY!!!!! I also hate those, and I’m not a regular EG kind of gal, but sometimes it inexplicably hits the spot.

Incidentally, that just made me wonder how many companies use hibiscus and bergamot to cover up the taste of a poor quality tea base…

Bio

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.

Yet.

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
