37

I have the 2012 harvest.

And honestly, if I were served this tea in a restaurant I wouldn’t drink it. It just does not work for me.

It’s very beany, and even though I steeped in 165C water, it was bitter.

Does any of the Eastern Contingent or Island Contingent like this one?

Preparation
165 °F / 73 °C 2 min, 0 sec

Whoa! 37? That’s where the :/ face is though, and that’s the face I made drinking this.

Hmmmm I’ve had this since I did the 5 for $5 way back in the spring. I just keep avoiding it. I don’t normally do very well with straight greens, and this just makes me think that I will keep avoiding it. :))

Amariel

I’d be willing to try, so maybe send to the island?

Maybe split half us and half them?

Sure thing, Heather!

Dexter, I don’t care for green teas so much either. I do like matcha, and Butiki’s flavoured dragonwells are nice, though.

I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s not big on the Laoshan Green. Mine wasn’t get bitter per se, but the beany flavor is just… eh. No.

Not being a huge fan of green teas, the beany or soy milk tasting ones are a hard sell.

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
