I should have rinse this before drinking it – it’s very potent, although less earthy than many of the puerhs I’ve had. Less flavor than I was expecting as well. I’d normally think this was a straight puerh than a flavored one. Also, it brewed up a purplish black.

The steeping instructions here and on the website are very different than on the packaging; I’ll have to review that first next time and use those instructions instead. Leaving the rating off for now.

Flavors: Earth

Preparation

drank Napa Blanc by Lupicia

Funny, I usually avoid white wine and savor my reds as I find whites give me a headache. So it was only after I drank this that I read the ingredient list and discovered the reasoning behind the name (duh me!) and that there was jasmine in it. I’d say the grapes and the jasmine blend together beautifully, although this is pre-sweetened, and thus, much sweeter than I expected. I doubt I’ll seek it out again, however it was a tasty tea, and a must-try for white wine lovers.

Thanks jump62359 for sharing this so generously with me!

Hey hey, I had this earlier today! Only was able to get to it after it cooled, and I found it a bit floral for my tastes, although quite lovely for a deeper green. I think I oversteeped it however, because it was also a bit bitter at the end of the sip.

I wish I remembered more, however it was a crazy day, and I just feel like I can settle down now (at 2:54am!) Thank you Ysurella you’re incredibly kind for sharing this with me. :) I owe you!

Yum yum yum yum yum! (I’m singing this, of course). While I’m enjoying my teas today, things are tasting off, less amazing than normal. Dunno why.

Why do I oversteep my last sips of a favorite tea? Silly me. Too much tartness and apple in this incarnation, so now I’ll just have to order more… ;)

Well, I accidentally steeped this for over 20 minutes, so… it tastes like medicine. Pills. Yea… not going to rate it, because it’s definitely user error. Bah!

Thanks though Suziqzer, this definitely has my name all over it! :) I love me some herbal tea.

Light, lovely and fruity. I don’t know if I’ll go out of my way to get this in the future, however it’s a lovely, light blend that’s very flavorful and delicious.

Kinda, sorta surprised I had to add this Steepster. Isn’t this a novel idea, a white chai? I’d think Steepsterites would jump on it!

Anyway. I added it, because I’m drinking it, thanks to a lovely surprise gift from Suziqzer. It’s a light, creamy blend, with a kick of spice from the red peppercorns, I believe. It’s a nice blend, a bit surprising really, as I’d never considered using a white for a chai… didn’t think the tea could hold up such bold flavors. I do like it though!

Flavors: Peppercorn

Hm. Liked this one less than I remember (loving it), however it was still gone before I realized it. I’ve got it on my wishlist in case I ever make another H&S order.

Bio

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.
