I came down with a nasty bout of the flu and was out of it for a few days which is why you didn’t see me on here much. I didn’t really even have the strength to make myself a pot of tea, much less sit in front of the computer. And one thing I learned is that I know I’m REALLY sick if I don’t even have the strength to make a pot of tea! Last night, I brewed a pot and it tasted perfect, so I suspect that my taste buds are working fine now though. I’ll have to backlog a few different tea experiences in a bit, but for now, I thought I’d enjoy a cup of Garden Bancha and write about it as I sip it.

This is really quite nice. It starts out really mellow. Almost too mellow, because it got me to question my taste buds ability again. But after a few sips, the tea became more focused, although it is still quite mild.

It has a strong vegetal quality to it in both its flavor and its scent. Earthy. It is light to medium bodied, with a bit of dry astringency toward the tail of the sip. It is a little sweet and a little savory. Very enjoyable.

Thanks. I feel a lot better today than I did yesterday … it’s been a slow progression but I’m feeling pretty good today.

Nice to see you back around! I was not a big fan of this one – will need to try again but I can see how it would be great when feeling ill!

Boo to the flu! The last time I had the flu, my brain was literally frying from the fever. My mom came to visit and according to her, I repeatedly asked to be taken to the hospital because I was convinced I was dying. :P Glad you’re feeling better and up to drinking tea again! :)

LiberTEAS

That was the part that was most disturbing to me. I didn’t even have the strength to make a pot of tea, nor did I find myself really wanting anything … even tea, most of the time. I just wanted to be put out of my misery. UGH!

Haha, the last time I had the flu, I repeatedly went to the doctor because my throat hurt so badly, and the day I spent feverishly in bed, hallucinating, I made my boyfriend sit next to me for hours because I was worried I was going to die. I wouldn’t even let him lie next to me, because I was too hot and it hurt to be touched. Man, does the flu ever suck!!! Glad you’re feeling better :)

ROFL, Krystaleyn! We are two peas in a pod!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

http://52teas.com

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
