Sipdown!

I got this as a sample with my latest DT order and after reading the reviews I was curious to try a cup of my own.

I don’t really know what to say… My cup was lacking of much flavour. There was so little in the sample packet I don’t even know if I had enough for a cup to be honest.

I steeped it for 5 minutes and the resulting liquid was pale yellow with strong scent of cloves. Taste wise though, there wasn’t much. After a lot of sipping, closing my eyes and meditating to try and bring some flavours forth, I think I detected an apple.

Honestly I think I would need twice the amount I had available to make it a worthwhile cup. I think I see a potential but unfortunately I won’t know for sure because I won’t be purchasing any time soon. If DT sends me couple of samples in the future, I will combine them into one cup and give it another shot.

Bio

It’s been a while since I joined Steepster and I think it’s time to write up a bio.

I’m a stay at home, married mom with 5 kids, most of them grown up. Only one remains with us now, my 7 year old sunshine which I push out of the house to school every morning and it’s not an easy thing to do.

I’m an avid gardener during a growing season and my goal is to grow most of the food we eat and save some for winter too. I’m also an artist and a huge nerd. I read books, I play computer games. My very first game was World of Warcraft (was addicted to it solid for a year, lol), then came Skyrim, Minecraft (with my 7 year old) and few others less memorable along the way.

I began drinking tea on regular basis just over 2 years ago when I decided to kick my morning coffee habit. It wasn’t pretty… I couldn’t function for 3 days straight but survived. A year ago I discovered loose tea and found Steepster… The rest is history.

Some of the staples in my cupboard are Dragonwell green tea, Japanese sencha, Silver Needle white tea, green roobois, darjeeling and pu’erh. I also drink variety of flavored teas for fun and I like to order tisanes and mix them with straight teas for even more variety.

Recently I found out how much I love oolong so will be stocking up on that as well.

There are few other tea lovers in my family: my mom and dad, my oldest daughter, my son and my youngest 7 year old. She loves when I try out different teas and I always have to remember to make enough for her to have a little taste.
