Sipdown!

I got this shou a year ago with my very first Verdant Tea order and it was the very first pu’erh I tried. I remember getting a head rush after drinking it. :D

A year later only a little bit remained on the bottom of the pouch… Some broken leaves and dust, all in all about 4 gram worth. I just threw it all into my little pot and steeped it for 3 seconds in 6 ounces of boiling water.

I was thrown into the deep woods where caves open up to the forest floor and moss covers every rock in sight. I can smell the pine in the air but see no sun… It’s misty, and mysterious. I lie down on the ground and peer into one of the caves… the scent is intoxicating… earth, moss, wet rock, wet wood.

Yummy.

Profile

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.
