What a wonderful wonderful surprise! Another whim purchase and I’m tickled three shades pink with this one. For tea connoisseurs this is probably unbalanced (leaning toward the floral side), but for me it’s perfect. Hot diggity-dang!

I’d never had rolled tea before, so I thought it was so sad how little came in the pouch. I did my typical scoop and then added a little more for measure. Yeah. I’m a noob. After steeping I took a look in my teapot: lo and behold! It looked like I’d raked my yard and thrown the leaves into my teapot. Only these tea leaves were gorgeous! I love this tea and would marry it (if only tea marriages were legalized in the U.S.) ::sigh:: Several superb steeps were achieved. Multiple TGs

Proud all-around nerd, crafter, and brand-new Assistant Library Director. Give me an engrossing book and a wonderful cup of tea and I’m in heaven.

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

How I use Steepster has been evolving since I joined. Yes, I use it for my personal “to buy or not to buy” info, but I’m enough of a goofball that I hope it can amuse others more often than not.

I’ve also started to become anal about my tea (times and temps). That’s surprised me. I finally realized that I should respect the leaves like I used to respect the beans. I also take my tea plain unless otherwise noted.

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.
