This wonderful tea arrived in my mailbox yesterday.

The leaves are thin, tiny and curly. Very green with little tiny white hairs.

I brewed this in my gaiwan and used a strainer to pour it from the gaiwan to my teacup, but, I’m happy to report that very few of the leaves (maybe 3?) escaped.

The flavor is very fresh, sweet and fruity. I am really liking this a lot. It is certainly an excellent tea to enjoy with the spicy Szechuan food that I’m eating for dinner. Fire-y hot (and delicious) tamed by the sweet cup of tea. A really lovely culinary experience.

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:


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.


I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.


Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
