Ahhh… Received an ounce of this today as well as an ounce of Wild Mountain. Since I’d only had the one cup sample of this before and just had the Wild Mountain the other day, I decided to try this first.

It really is a beautiful tea. So smooth and light but full of flavor. It is similar to the Wild Mountain, but to my very unsophisticated palate, this one seems a bit “brisker”.

Preparation

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!
