Tea from my tea sister Terri. What intrigued me most about this, is that there are 3 different sets of instructions on the package depending on what you’re going for:
-195 1 tsp 4oz for sweet, floral, silky texture
-205 for robust maltiness 4oz per tsp
-6-8oz of water if you want a blod pick me up, similar to a darjeeling.

Since i have a little to play with, i went with 4oz, 195 degrees, 1.5mins. This is slightly sweet, but i wouldn’t say floral with a hint of maltiness coming through. it reminds me a little of a ceylon brewed this way. interesting.

drank Organic Black Pearl by The Tea Spot

These are not mandala’s infamous pearls…but these are pretty decent. terri sent these my way to try and they’re not half bad. Sort of an average cup, so nothing i feel the need to desperately seek out, but something id have no problems revisiting again with a purchase. smooth body, little bit of malt, some earthiness to it that some people might not like.

drank Laoshan Gongfu Black by Verdant Tea

steepster eats notes and ratings for breakfast. I know i’ve had this one before. Terri sent me some more (maybe a different year) and this is pretty tasty. not sure it’s worth the extra money for this version over my regular LB, but it’s still tasty and i rather enjoyed it. Familiar LB notes in here : malt, dark rich chocolate and maybe a hint of cherry like something?

sniff all gone. It was my present to myself yesterday for my anniversary ha. Now here’s hoping they bring it back, as rumours would have us believe.

Aww Sil, happy anniversary! Sorry you finished this, but let’s hope it does too. Did yours taste stale or older? I have like 25-ish grams left and it seems like mine is starting to despite being stored in a tin.

Sil

mine was sachet form….variatea gave me a few more. So they’re essentially vacuum sealed.

Yep. Still really enjoying this version from YS. Imo, it’s a substitute for the version from Verdant and I’ll likely be buying either,or in the future.

I pulled this one out to try it again and i had a little more success today that previous times. I’m still not getting the intensity that others have with this, but there are some definite honey notes that are coming through.

Word on the street is that this one might come back. I certainly hope so ‘cause i’ve got exactly one cup left of this after today. So worth it, but still super sad.

Rosehips

What? It might come back! Eeeee! I really hope so, as I adored this.

Sil

that’s what someone mentioned the other day…they had been in the store and the rep said so… Here’s hoping :)

sundaysipping

I heard the same thing! Hoarding what I’ve got left until it comes back for sure, though.

Maddy Barone

I never got any of it last year, and it sounds so good, so I hope it does come back!

Sil

Mir added sugar than I really want in a tea, but I can’t resist.

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.
