I got this cake from Nomad.sk because I was ordering a teapot, and for the shipping cost, it made sense to add some more items. I used google translate to get the site into English. Confession: I bought this one because of the pretty wrapper. I lucked out though, because it’s very good!

Method: 6g, 6 oz, 200 degrees, rinse-rest-10-15-20-etc, sheng yixing and Goldie

Aroma: VERY lightly smoked fruit

Flavor: Springy, fruity, and very lightly floral. This tea is quite smooth with only a tiny kick of astringency and bitterness at the end. But really not much. I think that my gamble paid off! I’m on the 5th steep at 30 seconds and it’s only getting better.

Gorgeous wrapper. So you chose this to be the gold cup’s maiden voyage? :D

LOL last night I christened Goldie with the Jade Dew cake that I got from Mandala. I wanted our first date to be a tea that I know I like!

This is our second date, so I decided to try something totally new. :)

I live in PA and I enjoy tea. I also make and drink both wine and beer. Someday I want to be a tea farmer. I’m also a practical vegan. This means that I never eat meat, and I do my best with the rest.

I like: Dr. Who, shengs, dark beer, dark teas, my three dogs, shous, springtime, barbecues, sunshine, industrial music, happy things, men with beards, science, and expressions of joy.

I dislike: politics, politicians, inequality, the Vegan Police, teas that are flavored with mint or melon, heavily cinnaBLARGH teas, trolls, bullies, and anti-intellectualism.

ALL YOUR TEAS ARE BELONG TO US.
