Thank you MissB for some of this one! I don’t know what is going on with Teavana, but with that feather thing, I’m kind of glad I don’t own more Teavana teas. They aren’t really my thing anyway, but their plain teas are usually okay. A Yunnan / pu-erh sounds interesting! I guess it’s blended with both pu-erh leaves and Yunnan leaves and I can definitely taste that. It’s interesting, but at the same time, it seems like it should be either one or the other. I would appreciate both blends independently. But there is an equal balance – definitely earthy dark pu-erh but also an additional sweetness from the Yunnan. Not very chocolatey though. Both cups tasted the same. So sweet though! It’s odd. I’d choose this over some of Teavana’s wacky blends though.
Steep #1 // 4 min after boiling // 2 min
Steep #2 // just boiled // 4 min

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
