100

1 tbsp in 12oz

Every time I don’t have this tea for a couple of weeks and then have it again, it’s an experience. Seriously, there can be no better taste on earth than this. It’s crazy how much I love it. Nothing else compares. Other Taiwanese blacks are kind of similar but this one is unique and just amazing.

Just a couple of tablespoons left to hold me until it’s available again. Eek.

(And don’t worry, I’m not fishing for a swap. Just realized that may have come off as passive aggressive beggining, ha!)

Haha, ifjuly… If I had more, I would trade (even thought you aren’t begging), but I got the last ounce Stacy had and have to make it last. ;)

Stop it already! I can’t read any more reviews of this tea knowing I can’t buy it until the summer!

Rachel J

LOL, Doug… The Mi Xian Black is amazing too. Very similar though a bit “drier”.

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!
