I hope everyone who celebrates had a great Easter. Cream egg! An essential Easter treat is Cadbury eggs. I love the Cadbury cream eggs.  I love the mini eggs. I received a sample of this recently.  Maybe the magic is in a single fresh teabag because this tastes like a luscious cream egg to me!  I was a little worried with this jasmine being here… I thought it would ruin it.  And there isn’t really a creamy component to the tea… like marshmallow or something.  That would make it a little too much like their Easter Egg Nests blend.  This is very similar but without the green tea, which means it is much smoother.  Cocoa shells for delicious chocolate flavor. However, somehow the second steep does have a bit of a bite to it… so pretty much just like Easter Egg Nests.  I like this one!  But again, it’s probably the magic of the single wrapped teabag and it needs to be a bit more special than just chocolate.  I already have a ton of Easter Egg Nests in stock.

Rethinking this though, and having a fresh cadbury egg, a cream egg is actually way more of the cream sugar bits than the chocolate bits, and without that middle part of the egg represented in the tea, and only a bit of a chocolate flavor, this is a bit of a fail of a tea blend.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas 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!

I’m always in search of: Hattialli, Qu Hao black, Jin Jun Mei, teas using marshmallow root.

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

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
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. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer… I have a dumb phone so can’t access internet on that. As of 12/20/21 my wifi might start getting unreliable.)

Happy sipping!
