So maybe I was a little too generous with my rating originally. I always seem to do that. Get so excited with new teas and all they have to do is not throw a curveball. Deliver what your name promises to and you’re golden. (Unlike some teas… Earth Teaz loves to mess with you, the tea drinker, like for example they say almond something or other you get strawberries. Wha?!)

I finished off the small 1 oz sample I bought on Black Friday. It seemed everyone was drinking this and raving and I had coveted for so long…

Speaking of coveting, it is easier to not crave new teas by avoiding this place here. I haven’t purposely avoided, I’ve just been consumed by other things, but the fact remains. If I don’t read about some fabulous tea someone else is drinking it is easier to be satisfied with my own cupboard. Keeping up with the Joneses is hard work, yo :)

I will not repurchase this tea because it’s all cake and no pineapple and I got tons of cake tea everywhere.


Hehe, I usually rate high and drop down too, though sometimes it goes the other way.

I started drinking loose leaf tea in the spring of 2013 (why do we feel compelled to mark the date of tea drinking somewhat like addicts counting their sobriety days?)

Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I lean heavily towards flavoured black teas. I’ve started to crave the occasional straight oolong and green but so far unflavoured black teas leave me unimpressed.

I’m learning so I drink them all. Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

Note*: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity.

Note**: My partner, our home improvements, gadgets, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
