After dumping the previous tea, but still wanting something sweet, I pulled this one out. I haven’t had it hot in ages. This was my cold brew favorite over the summer. Happily, this tea still makes me smile. I’m sipping on this while seasoning my little tea yellow yixing teapot that has the orchid on it:

I’ll be using it for my taiwanese black teas. I know it’s recommended to brew them in glassware as they are pretty mild, but that teapot is so darn cute and delicate and just reminds me of what taiwanese tea would look like if it were a teapot, so I’m doing 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.
