Additional notes: So I was craving a coffee tea today and this was a single teaspoon holdout that I was hesitant to sipdown, which I’m pleased to now finish, as I can now order more! Blame my love of this tea on the tea box I found it in. The dry leaves still smell like coffee, even with a best by date of 2015. Yowzas. I love this: black tea, puer, cinnamon, coffee. It’s a unique combo. And the flavor remains the same throughout all three steeps. It hits the coffee craving without me having to actually drink coffee.
After I buy some teas from Cameron and this Lupicia order, I MUST stop buying teas for at least a year. I will try harder than I ever have tried. But I am always breaking my loose ‘no buy’ rules. Tea is truly something I love and appreciate, so it’s hard to resist. I’m going to try keeping track of sipdowns (I remember I tried a few years ago.) To me, sipdowns are less important than enjoying the teas I want to, when I want to, especially when they are fresh. I had a really old blend of Graveyard Mist that still tasted fantastic the other day. There is always something to enjoy in any tea. But I believe I’m a bit overboard on tea for a while, even if I appreciate every tea that arrives at my door, especially from you awesome Steepsterers. :D
