I’ve dealt with Priority No. 1 sipdown, so now I can move onto Priority No. 2! There are two-and-a-half pots left, which means I can probably finish it off by tomorrow..

The coconut has held up well over the course of the last few months. The pineapple is subtle, and combines with the coconut and base to create a creamy tropical beverage, à la piña colada (cringe, linguists, cringe). I definitely prefer this without milk and at a warmer temperature though.

Anyways, while this isn’t a priority repurchase, I can see myself ordering more in the future- maybe when the world is warmer and/or I need more of this company’s delicious Cream of Earl Grey (it’s my favourite one right now).

Flavors: Butter, Coconut, Cream, Malt, Pineapple, Tropical

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

I most liked this one when I combine it with another tropical fruit black with a frisky base. I find the base of this one a bit spineless.

Thanks for the tip about their Cream of Earl Grey. I have yet to try it.

I Particularly like their Cream of Earl Grey because it’s cheaper than DT!

And I won’t lie- I like how spineless the black to is here; I can forget it exists even when I oversteep it! Next time I grab some though I’ll try mixing it for a bit of dynamism. I need to get back into black teas somehow.

Evol Ving Ness

Hmm, perhaps I can help that process along somewhat :)

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

My favourites are teas like Milk Oolong, Silver Needle,and Japanese Sencha/Gyokuro, or fruity and floral flavoured ones. However, I generally enjoy ALL the teas, including a good old cup of Earl Grey or Breakfast blend.

FAVOURITE INGREDIENTS/NOTES:

DESSERT FLAVOURS
Vanilla, Maple, Caramel, Butterscotch, Cream, Toffee, Nougat, Marzipan, Butter

CITRUS
Lime, Grapefruit, Lemon, Bergamot, Yuzu (orange is a hit or miss)

Anise (but not licorice), Ginger, Clove-forward chai

- Mango pieces (love mango outside of tea though)

- Almond

Subjective Rating System:
I don’t give a lot of low ratings out, since a) I tend to grab tea I know will appeal to me, and b) I don’t have a lot of dislikes.

90-100: Favourites. The Desert Island Teas.
80-89: Loved teas. Possibly staple-worthy.
70-79: Good teas, but I’m less likely to repurchase. Minor quibbles.
60-69: Ok teas. Likely a few preference and/or quality issues.
50-59: Cup of meh. Will do in a pinch.
11-49: Varying levels of undrinkable tea.
1-10: Nightmare tea from the chaos realms. This tea is the embodiment of the primordial swamp, an unholy abomination. It’s very gross and I’m almost positive it doesn’t exist.
