I’ve enjoyed this tea all day long. It was my post-run pick and then I took some of the already steeped leaves in my JOEmo to work. Now I’m home and threw in some fresh leaves into the pot and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. However, I failed in finding some balls-o-Toucha (I know that they’re there — hiding from me now that I want one) :P TG

Had to have my Dragon to start off my week. I’ve been mostly MIA on Steepster since I had family visiting (my little niece and nephew keep me a-runnin’), and I’m trying to make my lifestyle healthier. Blech. ;) So this weekend was a blur. But now I can sit for a few minutes and enjoy one of my most favoritest teas in the universe. TG

Yay you’re back! I guess family > blogging about tea (especially nieces and nephews – I just became an auntie a few months ago and it is pretty sweet :D) Also, a sample of this is totally going into my next Upton order.

When I popped open my larger bag-o-this tea I actually shook it around lookin’ for some Toucha balls ::insert inappropriate joke here:: I know that they’re in there! But this time around I was unable to locate one (those sneaky bastards) :P

Oh yes, this is still yummy. I had a cup before work and then one when I arrived home, and I think there shall be a final one before I go to sleep. Nom! TG

Bio

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.
