drank Thin Mint Green by The Tea Spot
5 tasting notes

I love mint and smelling the dry leaves bring back pleasant memories of the mint fields of Oregon. I prepared this tea this evening for two. My daughter is sick with a sore throat bug, so I thought it would be a feel good tea for her. I plan on keeping this tea in my cupboard.

I used whistled water, which is why it had a bitter undertone. I forgot which tea I was preparing the water for. I gave a cup to my daughter who was in bed with a sore throat bug. She said it made her throat feel better. I finished off my cup of Chun Mee and, although not prepared correctly, was satisfying just the same.

This tea satisfied my evening desire for desert without guilt. Definitely a new favorite of mine.

drank Boulder Blues by The Tea Spot
5 tasting notes

I’ve recently been introduced to loose leaf teas, so this would be my first log. First, I should mention that finding a pocket of time during the day to have tea uninterrupted is pert near impossible. More times than not I start drinking the tea hot and finishing it up room temperature. I find boulder blues to be pleasant to drink from hot to room temperature.

Profile

Bio

My oldest daughter encouraged me to join steepster, since she introduced me to loose leaf tea, so here I am. She is my tea mentor; although, she says she is a newbie here too. A bit about me; I homeschool my youngest daughter and developed an interest in drinking tea for the health benefit. In between those two daughters I have a grown son and another daughter.
Note: water boils at 195 degrees at my altitude.
