Still rolling through my samples from Terri Harplady and I decided to do a random grab into the pile and see what came out. This was the winner. It’s pretty good. I don’t love it as much as others I’ve tried, but I’m enjoying it. As it cools the flavors start popping out a bit more, so that’s cool. I think the astringency doesn’t work for me though. Something is not quite right, but like I said, I’m definitely still enjoying it.

I think this is the one that I have a tendency to over-leaf or over-steep…or maybe both. It’s a good cup, but easy to overdo.

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.
