Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow U.S. Steepsterites! I hope you’re all safe and healthy and have a good day, even if it looks different than usual. I’m thankful for YOU, and I’m sending you happy vibes and positive thoughts.

This is a sipdown. I loved this one. It’s a robust blend of Indian black teas, the most dominant of which is Assam. It’s like an elevated Irish breakfast tea.
The steeped liquor is a ruddy color and smells like autumn leaves, raisins, malt, and wet earth. It has flavor notes of malt, tannins, astringency, a tiny bit of lemon, and bitter cocoa.
Some might say this was just a standard black breakfast tea, but it’s a memorable one for me. Very high quality, low maintenance, and hearty.

Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Butter, Cocoa, Lemon, Malt, Raisins, Wet Earth

Hello! 28, female, American. A total hopeless bookworm— I have a Bachelor’s and a Master’s in English. I also love dogs, all things that are colored purple, and sarcasm. I work in the Information Technology field at present.

I’m not a swapper, but I hope we can still be friends :)

Favorite tea types: Black, pu’erh, oolong, kombucha, genmaicha, matcha, rooibos, honeybush (recent change of heart there), and floral greens.

Favorite flavor notes: Roasted, fermented, earthy, floral, nutty, bread-y, umami; dessert-inspired flavors like chocolate, vanilla, and maple.

I’m very picky about chai and spice/ spicy blends as well as fruit-flavored teas; they really need to be done right, IMHO. I’m iffy about mate, as well as herbal teas, although there are a few tisanes that I enjoy (roasted dandelion root, chamomile).

Flat-out dislike: White tea, most unflavored green teas, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint.

90-100: Perfection and heaven and magic, all in one cup.

70-89: Good.

50-69: Meh.

49 and below: Blerg.
