this was one of my teas from yesterday – a generous sample from Wymm tea that came wrapped in paper. This was a a nice sheng…full of honey and creamy notes, with only a hint of bittnerness on the back end. Unlike some sheng’s that i’ve had, it didn’t turn in to a bitter mess that i didn’t want to drink (i’m still learning!) haha later steeps had more hay notes to it but they were still smooth and slightly sweet. I may have a few more infusions of this today if i get time.

thanks so much for sharing these teas with us Wymm!

Shengs can be finicky but oh so worth it. This sounds like a good one!

Thanks for the Review Sil! glad you enjoyed it:) that bitterness is actually from the caffeine, it should disappear in the later steeps, leaving a light and sweet taste.

Stephanie, let us know if you are interested in trying some of tea:)

i didn’t to drink a lot of tea yesterday (or likely today) but next week should make up for it. I took this one with us on our adventure out to oakville to visit a tea shop YYZ had mentioned. Best part about it? not only was this tea totally satisfying (with a splash of maple syrup of course) but i bought my first tea tray!!! YAAAY!

Adding this one to the wish list! Seems like Andrews and Dunham have some great teas!

Stephanie

Tea trays are so much fun :)

yum. this is just a really neat tea. I’m going to need to explore more hei cha teas and see where i land on them. I really enjoyed this one but i’m still not sure if it’s because of it’s uniqueness or the flavours or both! :) thanks so much for sharing with me terri!

so if anyone else out there hates this one, I’ll take more. It seems like the more i have it, the more it grows on me. I am loving the orange flavour in this one and i’ve only got maybe a cup left heh

noms. I pulled this one out to have again from the MissB stash. I love how deep and puerh like this is, with the flavours being much more in the background but still present and tasty.

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.
