100th tasting note!

Apparently we suppose to get a reprieve from the frigid temperatures over the next several days. It’s predicted to warm up this afternoon to a balmy -6C (21F) from the breath freezing -23C (-9F) registered on my dashboard this morning. By Friday, get this, -2C (28F). Yay! Heat wave! Pull out your bathing suits everyone!!

This tea definitely deserves to have my 100th tasting note. I still love it very much and I’m almost done with the 1st ounce I bought. Every time I drink it I enjoy it so much I want to write about it, lol. It’s aromatic, smooth and rich in flavour. It has a wonderful mild, earthy taste of good shou with fragrant notes of chrysanthemum flowers. It’s mild and spicy at the same time with notes of coriander and juniper berries definitely coming through. And then there is burdock. I really don’t know what it suppose to taste like but I definitely detect something else in this tea that might very well be burdock, I don’t know.

Yes, this blend is simply lovely. :)

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.
