Thanks, Nicole_Martin again!

This tea reminds me a lot of Assams. It is fruity, malty and full-bodies, but still fairly light and sweet.

Thanks, Nicole_Martin, for this tea!

This is very different from all the dark, heavy teas I’ve been drinking lately. It was a welcome change. Warm, light, grassy and sweet- this reminds me of dancing in a field of grass and wildflowers. The mouth feel is silky smooth. I’m enjoying this a lot today!

Thanks again, Nicole_Martin!

This is my kind of chai! It has a golden-tasting, malty base and balance of both light and dark spices. How can I turn down cloves or liquorice root, right? And rose leaves in a chai? I was suprised at how much I could actually makes them out. I though at first they would be drowned out by the spices, but it really works well here. Yum!

Thanks, Nicole_Martin for this tea!

This is an interesting tea. The spices are not in your face and the subtleness works well with the bready, black base and the vanilla. It’s a good tea to start the day with- warms me up on this chilly morning!

Currently enjoying this with the entire family. We added spiced rum t it and I think it enhances the flavor.


Sounds good, I’ll have to mention that to my mom, she got 50g of it to try and share with me :)


Thumbs up for rum

Spiced rum? I think there’s a holiday drink in there.


lol. This tasted a lot like spiked hot apple cider.

I had this iced this week and it was very good! The kiwi was natural and very different from most of the fruit teas I’ve had. The coconut gave it a slightly roasted flavor although it was cold. I’m also enjoying the Handmade Teas bases. They are very warm-tasting. I look forward to trying this one hot.

I made this with more leaf this time and it was much better. Still pretty tart, but there was more fruitiness to it this time. The mouth-feel was also a little thicker which helped add to the the pudding flavor. Still not my favorite plum tea, but much better than the last time I had it.

Thanks, Nicole_Martin, for sample of this tea!

This is a backlog from yesterday.

I enjoyed this tea as a breakfast tea. It was exceptionally smooth and malty with golden overtones. It was very fruity with almost plummy tones. It also has some green bean flavors going on. A very nice tea altogether!

Sipdown! For some reason I find dragonwell particularly warming. The office is chilly, so I pulled this out.

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
