I needed a treat this morning. It was a long night of my cats hunting a mouse that has found his way into our brand new house. Grrrr. I’m kind of a tom boy in most things, but nothing gets me screaming like a little girl faster than a mouse. I know, totally cliche, but it’s the truth.

Plus the bean was up for 2 hours in the middle of the night. I’m beat.

Time to indulge in some more of this. I’ve been rationing it until my new bag comes, but I’m in need of a treat today. I accidentally over steeped it by a minute. Shoot. Since it’s an assam it got a little bitter, but nothing that a little scoop of raw honey can’t cure. I love this. I’m so excited to read all the other rave reviews that will be coming in.

See previous note for my review.


I just ordered some! Can’t wait to try it!!!!

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
