Nice, smooth, mellow tea. Could be very enjoyable for times when I don’t want something with too specific of a character.

ETA: 2nd steep at same parameters was pretty good too!

Some of my favorite teas are kind of middle of the road. For when I have a taste for not having a taste of something.

Faint praise :)

Hahaha… I know, I’m getting spoiled by all the amazing teas that are so unique. This just has that “generic black tea” quality. :)

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!
