Sipdown. I really liked this tea at one time, but the 2nd bag I had was much too spicy. Way too many red pepper flakes. So while I had milk, I powered through the last of this tea!

5 tsp to giant 20 oz mug. 190F 4 min. Milk to cut spicyness & honey. As a latte, this works ok. Still pretty spicy, cinnamon, little bit of cocoa, but the spice is overwhelming to where it’s all I can taste. 2nd steep is less spicy, but only just okay. I even sorted out a lot of the pepper flakes. Tea was drowned out under the heat.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cocoa, Spicy

I started my tea journey with Stash/Celestial Seasonings tea bags years ago. All loose leaf, unless I’m sick or traveling.

I like black, oolong, white, herbals, and raw/ripe pu’erh. I don’t drink green tea often.

I play video games, read, and do pottery. My current favorite tea mug is one I threw and glazed.

I generally review teas twice – initial and final steeps.

My cupboard is completely out of date. I have a spreadsheet that has 250 teas, but is also out of date. And tea all over the living room that hasn’t been logged anywhere!

85-100 are teas that I loved and want to keep in stock.
71-84 are teas that are good. I may or may not get them again. Source for daily drinkers/work teas.
60-70 are teas that I didn’t like. I’ll finish what I bought.
Anything less than 60…nope.
