I received this as a sample from Stacy @ Butiki in my order. I think I have steeped this wrong since I didn’t get what most have mentioned from this tea. To be fair, it was still an enjoyable tea but not quite what I was expecting. Added some sugar to see if that changed the taste enough – about the same. That being said, I’d be wiling to give it another shot as I feel like at this stage in the game, it’s likely ME not the tea :)

Hmmm, the only steeping issue I could think of is amount of water. The sample sizes are pre-measured for 8oz of water. If you use a mug and don’t measure out the water the size of the mug can be very deceiving. Most mugs that I see range from 12oz-16+oz. If you measured out the water, than this might not be your cup of tea. :)

For sure Stacy. I did measure it because in our house mugs are closer to 20oz lol don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the tea just want to try it again because I’m pretty sure I need to do it right :)

Ha, yeah same here. We have huge mugs, to the point of being ridiculous.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
