I shared some of this tea with my dad, who likes tea but usually drinks Lipton. He took a sip, and said, “Wow. I could drink this all day.” He also said it reminded him of Guiness beer. He was very impressed by its resteepability. Very happy in my tea sharing success!!

I’m going to Orlando area in July to visit my folks, & was actually contemplating what teas I plan to bring. I was actually thinking of packing up a box for myself, including a well padded Gaiwan, etc & mailing it to their house a few weeks before I go, so that I can have all the comforts of home & share some teas with them. :D

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
