I ordered this today at the Harvard Square location of Peet’s. Sadly, I was disappointed. I had looked on Steepster and it had pretty good reviews but my cup was bitter and astringent to the point of not being drinkable. I only steeped the leaves 3-4 minutes. I looked into my little teapot that they use to serve the tea and I think that maybe there was too much tea…the store was busy and maybe the barista was not paying attention? My husband’s tea (Lapsung) was fine. He had maybe 1/2 the leaves in his teapot. I drank two sips and had to throw the rest out….I wish I could give this a better rating but for drinking as it was served was terrible…

Bio

I like all kinds of tea and am open to new things. I am learning about all kinds of new tea and am working on pushing my palate with new tastes.

Looking for new tea shops/houses/cafes and finding new teas to sample is often part of the adventure!

Bringing varied teas to work makes the day interesting

I live in Framingham, MA with my husband, a cranky orange cat and an oversized chihuahua.

I am open to tea swaps from around the world and tea meetups if anyone is in the Greater Boston/ New England area.

As of 7/6/14 I am working to make every tea I own appear in my cupboard…including things I only have a small amount. Look around! Want to swap?
