I was really excited to find the Steepster Select package in my mailbox today. I hadn’t expected it until tomorrow.

As I am not particularly as fond of Pu-erh as I am other tea types, I am surprised that I chose to try this first. I think it may have something to do with the fact that it’s from Verdant, and they haven’t disappointed me yet.

This tea is full of surprises! Yes, it tastes like corn! It smells like corn too. It is a very light textured Pu-erh – it feels very light and smooth over the palate. Silky. Hints of spice in the background. Earthy, yes, but not overwhelmingly so. One of the lighter earthy tastes (and aromas) that I’ve noticed from a Shu.

I’m liking this.

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.
