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.

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites, green rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y.

I own an obscene amount of tea, and am always happy to share. Just got back from a six month exploration of Western Europe, so I’ve got some pretty lovely tea that we just can’t easily find this side of the pond. Woot!

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time exploring, playing board games, reading, hiking, hanging with friends.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, although for some reason the French seem to have figured out how to do this without making me ill. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
