Backlog from last night.

I really enjoy this tea. If you like buttery, nutty, rice-y green teas or oolongs you need to try this. I love to watch the tiny little nuggets unfurl into huge leaves. It takes several steeps to get there, but the flavor stays strong.

This is a very flavorful tea. I shared some with the guys at my tea shop and they loved it! Very nice rice-savory taste from a herb blend only used in a certain area of Northern Thailand that I believe was introduced long ago by some Chinese soldiers who were straned and became tea farmers.

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.
