Delicious.

I don’t tend to use tea bags, but I was heading out and the place I was going doesn’t have a great selection of tea. I remembered there was a tea bag included in the sample pack I got from Den’s, so I brought it along. Upon trying it, I was surprised to find that it was quite good. Surprised both because it was from a bag, and because I tend to dislike green tea (though I got the sample pack to see if that was because I had just had bad teas before, or something). It was slightly earthy, but not overwhelmingly grassy. Slightly sweet; I added sugar about halfway through, and that was a mistake.

I barely brewed this. I had heard you weren’t supposed to brew green tea very long, but I didn’t remember to check how long was ideal before I left. I just took a sip when the water seemed dark enough, and liked the flavor so didn’t brew longer.

I also wasn’t in control of the temperature, since everyone was using a communal electric kettle.

I’ll probably buy this regularly. =)

Bio

Hey there, I’m new!

I’m a 20 yr-old day-care worker. I’ve been a fan of tea (beyond the sweet tea common in the South of the USA) for about four years, but I never took the time to document what my observations on the various teas I consumed. I look forward to using this space to do so.

Apart from tea, I love reading. I just finished Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games, Tamora Pierce’s books in the Tortall Universe, as well as Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book and Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens.

I have a small potted garden and a compost bin. I’m moving toward recycling more and toward a more minimalist lifestyle, although I don’t have that much stuff to begin with

I’m just beginning training in Hapkido, and it is exhausting! But also fun. =D

Most of the teas in my cupboard, currently, are just samples. I sent off to a variety of places and am trying to get a more definitive sense of what I like, so that I can have more tea staples in my cupboard than just my Rishi Earl Grey (which I strongly recommend).

I’m always happy to receive teas if you wish to help me extend my palate. I’m going to try to keep my cupboard up-to-date with what I have; feel free to request something in exchange.
