I found Steepster a few months after I got into tea. I’ve been reading all the wonderful reviews here and absolutely love the site! But it took me a few more months to realize that I could use Steepster as a way to keep track of what I’ve tried and what I’d like to try.

So … a lot of my reviews are old. Sorry about that.

Jessie’s Tea came in the Sweet Indulgence Sampler I bought from DAVIDsTEA this spring. I love the look of the loose leaves – it’s such a pretty mix and the colors are really relaxing. It brews up to a dark red-brown color. The thing that got me about this tea was the smell, though. It smells like soap dry and still retains that lavender body wash scent when it’s brewed. The taste wasn’t bad, but I couldn’t get over the smell. I tried it again last night with more success – there was less lavender smell, and I loved the way this tea coated the back of my throat and left a pleasant, lingering taste in my mouth. Only complaint was that some sips resulted in a scratchy feeling as I swallowed. These seemed to alternate with the “throat coat” sips.

Not a tea I’d keep on hand, but definitely a nice tea to relax with before bed.

I became interested in tea spring 2013, when some friends of mine brought me to a local tea shop. I’ve been experimenting since, and am absolutely in love! I am especially fond of blended teas, and I’m a sucker for gimicky flavors.

My cupboard is stocked with a lot of DAVIDsTEA at the present, although I do have a few teas from some local shops. I’m looking forward to branching out and trying teas from different vendors and shops. Let the journey begin!
