Steepster is acting slow again, so I’m not sure if this tea will make it to the dashboard.I tried “liking” a few people’s notes and they didn’t stick either.

Anyway, it’s been freezing cold in my apartment today and I’ve been trying to drink a lot of warm tea but I don’t need any more caffeine after my 1 pm coffee which still has me kind of wired at almost 9 pm.

I’ve had this tea forever and it’s been lurking in my cupboard where I forgot about it. This is the kind of bergamot tea I actually enjoy since the tea is lightly flavored with bergamot, very subtle and compliments the black tea well. This is good with soymilk and a touch of stevia this evening. I wouldn’t turn down a cup if offered, but it can’t really compare to the decaf Paris by Harney and Sons. This is also in a paper teabag which doesn’t help the flavor. It is a decent cuppa, however.

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.
