Reading over the past tasting notes, it seems like you either love or hate this particular tea.

I love the woodsy and warm taste of this tea. Totally a morning or early afternoon drink. It reminds me of the bonfire we had every year at a Masquerade function I always went to. Good times.

It’s not as good as the Spice and Tea Exchange Lapsang Souchong, in my opinion, a three minute steeping time left a weaker and more astringent taste. I plan to perhaps use slightly more tea and a two minute steep time next time I make a pot of this.

I’m not one for introductions…

I’m a studying musicologist, cellist, and sometimes I’ll sketch a thing or two.

Tea and I first met in the form of a stale Chamomile bag on a cold and dreary night. It was a humble (not to mention tasteless) beginning, but it was a beginning nonetheless.

My affinity for the Victorian tradition of tea lead me to Twinnings which then led me to Teavana, which led me to perhaps my most favorite (living) musician. Yes… well, it’s not really a logical story…

Anyways, I’m here now, realizing that there’s way more to tea than I’d ever knew, and more than I’ll probably ever know.

Meet you all at 4 o’Clock…
