Oh man, this is a fantastic summer tea. It’s from StarFevre — thanks so much! Even though it’s probably old and stored in the thinest of baggies (but the tea shop put it in that baggie), the flavor is still really good. I think it’s meant to be iced because the base is a CTC black tea… even some really tiny CTC tea that I could swear sometimes looks and tastes like rooibos. But the black tea also has a robustness to it. The added flavors are fantastic: definite lime but also with a hint of creaminess to it, like it could be a key lime pie, or lime jello with whip cream on top. It’s a great tea… one I might even search for fresh to buy again, as I’m one serving away from a sipdown. I keep going back to this tea!

Sounds delicious! And if this TeaHaus is indeed in Ann Arbor, I might have to pay it a visit next time I’m there for work!

I checked the Tea Haus website, they no longer have this. But Tea Gschwendner still has it.

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
