Gotta love working from home on a day when all your meetings are cancelled. Now i can be productive with both work, home stuff and exercise lol this particular tea is growing on me. The more i have it, the more almost chocolatey it seems.

I wanted to try this one before i send out the box today/tomorrow so i’m working on sipping through this one now. I vastly prefer shou to sheng, but i’m always open to trying new teas in case i find that hidden gem that i love.
woke the tea up and then let it sit for a bit – these tiny bricks are fairly compressed.

Initial steepings of this one are quite nice. This is, so far, a milder sort of sheng – light on the vegetal sort of taste i don’t love – smooth and there’s a hint of sweetness starting to poke through. interesting to see how this plays out this morning

Good call on letting the tea open a bit after the rinse. These mini cakes tend to take considerably longer to open up compared to a regular cake. I’ve been known to cheat with these and give them a poke or two with my tea needle early on…

still love this one. So glad i have lots left to enjoy. Here’s hoping i can get organised with my cupboard this weekend so i can really have a small-er cupboard with things i adore instead of just enjoy. this would fit nicely in to that type of cupboard heh

so many teas…so little time. Making such good progress, just not getting around to tasting notes. I think my only ask for this one would be MOAR cadamom haha. still a tasty treat this afternoon.

this was a little more chocolate cherry today so i’m guessing it’s how it’s blended and what i manage to get in my teaspoon. Will try this a couple more times before i decide on reordering again. See if i can land on a consistent experience.

There doesn’t seem to be a consistent experience: varies between divine and so-so. Heh.

I would definitely give it another chance.I’ve had to to tweak my blending methods to adjust to volume, and everything is far more consistent now.

(Message me if you do as well, because I’ll make a discount code for it just in case you still can’t get it to work for you)

Sil

@Lauren – good to know. I can’t imagine the challenges that come with tea blending! :)

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.
