Restocked this a little while ago as a side benefit to a business trip to Atlanta. Still as good as I remember from a few years ago, perhaps better. I don’t know if their supplier changed the weight of the balls, but I’m using 3 per 16oz mug now. The “burnt” edge is not present in this batch. Strong flavor but not a heavy tea. Its smooth, slurpable (is that a word?). A very good wake up tea. ratings bump over a few years ago for consistency in goodness.
Needs boiling water, I think, to get the balls well-saturated quickly.

Even if it isn’t officially a word, it’s an excellent one. (It’s a perfectly cromulent word!)

LoL, I have to admit…I had to look up cromulent. Learned a couple of other words in the process, embiggen and ensmallen.

Bio

I remember when I discovered that there was more to tea than hot or iced. I was given a loose tea sampler (M.T.W.) and a stainless steel tea ball as a Christmas gift many years ago, by whom I cannot remember. That was the start of what will be a life-long love of fine tea. I discovered Steepster from a blog entry on the Mark. T. Wendell website…and have, from Steepster, discovered even more fine teas and vendors. Bravo!
