I have been stuffy since I got home! I have so many new teas to try but I don’t want to miss out on the flavors of them as I can barely smell. I knew I needed something to help me get up and go, this cold is zapping my energy. Black tea it is! I chose this one because I am able to get more easily from The London Tea Room. Last time I had this, I remember not being too sure about it as there are not many black teas I enjoy.

From what I can smell of the leaf, it makes me think I should love it. The first sip makes me think that I underleafed it, it seems watery. With the second and third sip, something is there but not vanilla or currant. Added some sweetener. That’s better. I think the black base is still a bit too strong for someone who usually drifts towards greens but some of the other flavors are coming out to play now. I will finish what I have but I am unsure of restocking. It is a nice cup of something different, just not something every day for me.

After almost two years back in my hometown I have embarked on yet another adventure. I have moved, yet again. This time for a new job in a city. I can’t wait to see what is in store for me.

I am happy to have found Steepster. It gave me a hobby that I could devote as much or little time as I could during school and I believe that it will continue to help grow that hobby as I now have more time to explore.

I still consider myself newbie to the world of tea. I am still in the process of trying just about everything but have come across a few favorites. So far the only thing I don’t care for is coconut.


1-49: Never getting again. Couldn’t drink the cup.
50-59: Finished the cup, but won’t get again.
60-79: Buy once in a while.
80-89: Will get more as soon as I run out.
90-100: Must not run out.
