I am enjoying this very much this morning. The dry leaves smell decadent- dark chocolate, and creamy. The taste isn’t nearly what I was expecting from the smell of the leaves, but it is still quite good. The chocolate is there, and it’s bright. Usually when I find a beverage bright, that’s a bad thing; my experience tasting bright coffee usually means acidic and astringent, blah. But this is smooth. Is there such a thing as a ‘happy’ note in tea? This tea has it! This has been brilliantly blended.
2 tsp leaves per cup.

I love tea. I first tasted loose leaf when my grandpa brought some back from Russia and I remember just savoring it. Not sure what kind it was; all I remember is that it was loose leaf and it was good. =)

I really enjoy oolong, jasmine tea, green tea, and white tea. I have been getting more into black tea, especially those with chocolate notes! Also, chai is a constant favorite.

As far as tisanes go, I enjoy chamomile and occasionally a mint. I am interested to try rooibus and honey bush. I do prefer teas without artificial flavoring but I’m willing to try most things.

I know next to nothing about puerh, but I like what I have tried so far.

I am consistently amazed at the flavors contained in one leaf. I am on a quest to discover all of them! Slowly, though. Good tea is expensive. :P

Other things I enjoy: Books. My family. Truth. Campfires. Animal Rescue. Gardening. Sushi. Mountain biking. Documentaries. Trees. Music. Culture. Sour cream raisin pie. Not necessarily in that order. :P
