Another Traveling Teabox Tea!!!

Yum, yum, yum. I love this tea! A gorgeous golden color, and I’m getting a luscious apricot flavor. It uses alot of tea – 2 tablespoons full! This was steep #1, 8 minutes.

Steep #2: another 8 minutes. Still very apricoty and delicious with more floral notes this time around. This is quite a sipper! I wish I was curled up with a novel instead of sitting at work!

Steep #3: another 8 minutes. Still amazing!! This may be my favorite steep so far! The apricot and floral are in a great balance in this cup. Mmmmmmmm.

I’m going to do more steeps this afternoon – I just got word that my class was canceled due to all the snow we have, so I’ll have time to do more sipping as I work :) I’ll edit this post when I do.

I have to say that this is so far the loveliest green tea that I’ve had the pleasure to experience! Much love to the Traveling Tea Box!!

EDIT: did two more tasty steeps at 9 min and 10 min. This tea is a superstar! I am definitely going to purchase some :) If you have another favorite from Rishi, I’m all ears! I suspect the organic rooibos I like from the loose tea tin area at Wegmans is actually a Rishi tea too.

180 °F / 82 °C 8 min or more

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
