Having the last of this sample from Azzrian today. I don’t know why, but I was craving a bolder tea this morning. Maybe it’s because I’ve been drinking so many herbals, fruity flavored things, oolongs and greens. I need something different! Plus I went out to dinner last night and it was a sort of pre-fixe that came with coffee/tea and dessert. The only tea they had was lipton. Sigh. I can’t believe I used to be ok with lipton. Then I moved up to Bigelow and Twinings. SO much better! and now, looseleaf!

This tea is great. First steep is a bit harsh. I added sugar. To be honest, the second steep is probably the best. It’s mellow and smooth and chestnutty. Perfect.

I really should be getting to the new teas and samples I have. I have too many! But I really wanted this tea today. It’s perfect. I might even start drinking black tea because of this! I know I’m already a fan of DT’s Butter Rum. I really don’t need to start liking another category of tea! Luckily, Pu-erh and I still aren’t BFFs. Green oolong will probably hold that title for life!

I feel suddenly compelled to get one of those two part necklaces that say “Best Friends” that fit together like puzzle pieces and give half to my green oolong collection.

…that’s it. I’m officially crazy.

I love how there’s a community I can go to where I feel less like a mental case. And I mean that in a good way! Thanks guys!

Did you re-steep this? This is the one I think I got 7 steeps out of before I was tried of it and wanted something else – although it is SO good but I need variety lol.

Mercuryhime

I did! I resteeped this I think 3 times before I got tired. You seem to be more patient than I am. :)

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
