I’ll post a note as I was questioning if the dashboard was currently stalled… It isn’t! (Unless this note will stall it….)

This was kindly shared by Cameron B, thank you!  I had always wanted to try this one.  I’m not sure why, as I’m not the hugest fan of chocolate teas from Harney.  But there is supposed to be other flavors here.  Sadly, chocolate kind of takes over.  Then maybe a generic sort of nuttiness.  (Makes sense, as the description mentions almond, hazelnut and peanut.)  But there is no apricot here to be found.  The second steep was actually deeper than the first steep, but more of the exact same flavor notes. The chocolate + nutty notes are reminding me of a Harney tea I had long ago….forget the name now.    Not my favorite from Harney, but the few teabags left in the tin shouldn’t be TOO hard for me to finish. :D  It looks like Harney doesn’t carry this one anymore…
Steep #1 // 1 teabag for medium sized mug // 20 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 3 min

Flavors: Chocolate, Nuts

I liked this one. Didn’t realize it had disappeared from the lineup.

I couldn’t find it in a site search… maybe it’s only temporary?

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.

My icon photo is Richard Mayhew from the graphic novel ‘Neverwhere’ by Neil Gaiman, Mike Carey & Glenn Fabry.

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!
