I need to know what you thought of this, I’m drinking it now!

I totally don’t remember! I need to keep better track! I definitely need to do it under my new S&V steeping parameters though. 180 for 2.5 minutes. What did you think?

I’m going to have to try that, I was at work with boiling water and probably 3-4 min and I found it tasted like slightly flavoured hot cardboard, haha. Not overly delicious, sadly!!

Bio

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
