’Here’s Hoping’ teabox Round #4 – Tea #2

I always have to try any EGs I find! Somehow the first steep tasted like a Lapsang Souchong for some odd reason. I thought the description would mention a smoky base, but it doesn’t seem to be. Otherwise, the depth to the flavor is decent. It seems like a mid-quality bergamot to me: not great, not terrible. The creaminess seems to be lacking. The second steep tasted like more of a “normal” EG. Glad to have finally tried this one! I might stock up on this one if all of my other favorites disappear.

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
