One of my go-to daily teas…smooth & comforting on a chilly spring day.

I got this with my first Steepster Select box, and I like it. The flavor is lighter than a straight Assam, but the texture is very pleasant…not thin, but not too thick either. It’s got a slight bite on the back end, which is indeed reminiscent of cinnamon, and a somewhat mint/menthol-like “feel” (not “flavor”, per se) on the front, making it very intriguing.

I’m enjoying this cup very much…and now that I’ve read other reviews, I think when I try the second packet I’ll do a gong-fu style brew, as it sounds like that brings out more of the spicy flavors. Still, good stuff even brewed just normal cup style, IMO.

drank Matcha by Teavana

Thought I’d start back to the “cuppa before bed” with the matcha in my fridge. It’s old enough that I doubt it’s as potent as it should be, but this did okay, considering I got the water too hot. It’s definitely a bit bitter tonight, but my own fault. But the tin is nearly done, and I have an un-labeled container of more old matcha in the fridge that I think I’ll just use for matcha lattes, etc. I’ll go order some new, fresh matcha tomorrow.

Hooray for bold, wild tea on a chaotic day!

This tea is rich, bold, and has that sort of “yeasty” note under the lighter, more pervasive muscatel flavor. Some days I like it, other days, not so much…it’s a mood thing with this tea. Some days (like today), it’s exactly what I want.

It’s been cold and rainy for the last two days…making Lapsang the perfect compliment to the weather.

I do adore this tea – smoky, smooth and sweet. It’s my rainy-day tea, and that describes today perfectly.

Something sweet and light for this afternoon…a harbinger of spring? Perhaps…

Rich, bold, smooth, peppery and a little smokey – this is just the perfect example of a damn fine Yunnan tea. I am enjoying it immensely. Serious yumminess.
