I’ve had enough straight green teas for the weekend! This is a strong, slightly bitter breafast type blend. Although it just says blend of black tea, ceylon seems to be the primary flavor. I got more Assam out of the second steep. I did not steep for the recommended 5 minutes. 2.5 was plenty strong! It was a little bitter, but adding sugar and half and half smoothed that out. Although it’s not the best belend I’ve had, it’s exactly the dark kind of blend I needed right now.

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
