Thank you Janelle for sharing with me this lovely cup, especially as it’s no longer available. This also happens to be a sipdown, since I had just enough for a 12 ounce cup. (434)

So Janelle put on the bag this should be steeped at 150F (really?!) and for 1-3 minutes. I only saw the super low temp after I steeped it (silly me) so I removed it just under three minutes in turn. Sigh. Wish I was paying more attention.

Straight, I got plain buttery green tea out of this. That’s it. With a touch of sweetener, I’m getting plain buttery green tea yet again, this time with a hint of something vanilla and bright. It’s a nice, pleasant cup, and I’m glad I’ve tried it, however I’m missing the WOW factor that many of you seem to have felt with it.

That tea was one of the first teas I had that I thought was just icky. I sent the rest off in a trade without tryin it again I disliked it so much. Now I see I over heated it but I don’t regret it.

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.
