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.

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites and 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 (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
