The highly amusing IM conversation between a friend and I who bought the same tea:
me: WOW. this is slightly smoky. seems like sweet roasted bark
friend: I KNOWWWW
me: so mellow and sweet
friend: IT’S AMAZINGGGG, ISN’T IT?
me: wow
friend: honestly..it’s one of my favorite teas ever
me: I’m amazed by this. it’s a taste that I have never had before. wow. this strange sweetness. like… the sweetness of pure nature. it evokes such a clear image of a forest with crackling sounds
friend: the way i was describing it to my friends is that it tastes like it’s roasted or kettle-cooked. it’s like they found a way to make “puer kettle chips” and then turned that into a tea. OMG YES. I CAN’T STOP TYPING IN CAPS
me: YEAH. YEAHHHHH. kettle cooked

Bio

Wolf girl. Equestrian. Writer. Artist. Gamer. Geek.

I joined Steepster back in August of 2009. Since then, I have been lurking around shyly and taken it all in. Just recently, I decided to log all of the teas that I have in my cupboard and from there I decided to be a bit more active on the site!

I’m addicted to three things: Tea, wolves, and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

My favorite teas: Jin Pin, Matcha iri Genmaicha, Shu Pu-erh, and roasted oolong teas.

Broadly speaking I also love: Most Chinese red teas and most Fujian oolongs.

I’ve been drinking loose-leaf teas since childhood. I love everything from tieguanyin to gyokuro to a good British cuppa. I am looking forward to trying every tea type out there and building an extensive pu-erh library.
