Continuing on my theme of HUGE mugs of dessert teas for breakfast…

I have enough left for one more cup after this. WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO?? :(

Melodrama aside, this is a really good cup this morning. I let it steep a minute too long (argh – way to treat your precious commodities) but luckily that didn’t seem to harm it. It smelled of sweet buttery vanilla and although plain it was a little too strong (my own fault, see: oversteeped) with milk and sugar it has mellowed into Bailey’s nirvana. It’s reminding me SO STRONGLY of Caramel Vanilla Assam which is both happy (nostalgia!) and sad (RIP).

I’ve made a deal with myself that the last cup of this will be St. Patricks Day. Not before. Now just to hold myself to it…

Flavors: Butter, Cream, Vanilla

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

My tea habits:

*I am an unashamed Lipton iced-tea drinker (mass quantities, year round).
*I like hot teas but only in cold weather (and occasionally late summer nights or mornings).
*I love Japanese greens (the more seaweed-y the better) and good strong malty black teas.
*I do NOT love smoke in any form.
*Vanilla, cinnamon, or lemon anything will usually pique my interest.
*I’m working on pu-erh but it’s definitely going to take some time to grow on me.
