Delightful! I taste peaches!!!!!!! THIS is the taste I remember from the delicious green teas I’ve had at tea houses! Also, the curly snail looking leaves are adorable. :)

2nd steep, resteeping for 4 minutes: No peach, but still very tasty. Almost tastes flowery, like a jasmine. Still very delicious and enjoyable.

3rd steep, resteeping for 5 minutes: Still some good flavor, but I think it’s done after this one.

I like to take a minute out of this review and THANK YOU ALL, Steepster site and Steepster participants! I’ve learned SO MUCH about tea in my short time here, and have really expanded my horizons. I didn’t even know you could resteep tea before joining!!! :)

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
