Amazing! Must steep at a lower temperature from now on in. It takes an amazing tea and makes it truly special. Now I get chocolate first, then orange, and all of it delicious.

you’ve been doing that alot lately… it’s working? better spin? different spin?

I think it’s that I’ve set the Breville to 200F and keep on forgetting to change it to 212F. Which, in these cases anyway, it seems to be working. The last several teas of the night however, not as much luck…

TheTeaFairy

Ah! You remind me, that’s a swap sample I’m gonna have today! Sounds wonderful this tea…

Tuscanteal

I want to try this tea just based on the reviews I’ve seen from you!

Good tip! I’ll have to try it. I really love it but I add just a tsp of milk for added creaminess.

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
