Somehow, I bought this tea about two years ago now (possibly shorter, but I think that’s about right), and never opened it. Huh?

As I’m going through all of my teas (yes, ALL of them), I’m making sure I have what I say I have, and removing the ones that have disappeared from my tea cupboard on Steepster. It’s quite the project…. so if I haven’t tried something, and I have it, well, I’m trying it. If I love it, I’ll drink it. If I don’t absolutely LOVE it, I’m passing it along. This tea? Passing it along.

Why? Well, it’s very much a coffee tea – which isn’t a bad thing. I’d call it a mocha tea, really, and it’s quite creamy, nutty, coffee-ish, with some chocolate in there to boot. Nice, yes. Rich and flavorful. If I want coffee though, I’d prefer to drink coffee, if that makes any sense. I guess this technically IS coffee, as there are bits of coffee beans in it. Still, it’s not a “madly in love” tea, so it’s off to the sale box. Woohoo!

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
