2 scant tbsp for 18oz

Soooooo smooth and delicious. Loved it even more than the first time. That special leaf hopper sweetness and absolutely no astringency whether hot, warm, or cold. Really hits the spot.

Geez, hours later I am still thinking about how much I enjoyed every drop of the 18 ounces of this I brewed. No additions, no snacking, just straight, pure, deliciously unique tea!

I actually bought 2oz then went back for 1oz more it’s so remarkably good.

Rachel J

Yeah, I only got a sample size, so it’s done! Going to have to order more TODAY. When I tried the Mi Xian black, I thought I like it better than this, but after trying this one again, I think I’m hooked!

Profile

Bio

I happily reside in Park Slope, Brooklyn with my husband, our baby son, and our dog. I teach over 40 piano students per week at my home studio and created “Fundamental Keys”, a classical piano method book and video series.

My husband and I are vegan and have been for about 8 years. We are enjoying bringing up our little one in the vegan tradition!

I went through a major tea phase some years ago (2006-2009) and had quite a collection and tasted hundreds of varieties. Then I went off caffeine when I decided to have a baby, and after he was born I got into a nasty coffee habit. Now I’ve come back to tea, thank goodness. I’m finding my tastes have changed quite a bit since my first go at tea fanaticism. Really enjoying some of the amazing and deliciously complex teas I’ve learned about through Steepster!
