mmMMMmmm….I’m enjoying this :)
This tea arrived today, & I immediately drank a cup, & then resteeped the leaves for a 2nd cup. Even though I shook the package up real good for that first cup, it mainly tasted like Laoshan black, with a little extra roasty flavor. It was awesome, but I wasn’t really getting the chocolate & toasted rice vibe that much. So I drank a cup of Keemun, which is very different, drank a glass of water, & measured out some more of this tea to try again. This time I inspected my spoon, making sure that all of the ingredients were well represented, & the 2nd cup definitely had the tasted of toasted rice & cacao! They add a satisfying depth to the cup, not tasting like coffee, but with the full body of coffee. On the re-steep I added some orange peel to the cup, just for a fun experiment, & it was a nice addition! Halfway through drinking that cup, I also added a drop of stevia, & THAT was also nice!
Now I’m reminiscing about Laoshan Bergamot Rose, hoping that David will bring that one back, fantasizing about adding roses & vanilla to this blend, enjoying this cup, & I think I need a hot bubblebath.
I’ll buy more…yes, I’m sure I’ll buy more…

After I ordered it I started thinking this will probably be included in the TOMC package, right? Along with the Autumn picked Tieguanyin, which I didn’t order.

Sil

i don’t get the TOMC, just the reserve club…which sadly i just cancelled because it’s turning into spring teas and while i’m open to trying greens and the like, i don’t LOVE them. I much prefer darkers teas. So I’ll just pick up some of the new teas come april and see what’s what heh

I have some of this one on its way and I’m waiting very impatiently!!

This was like 2 tea’s in taste for me.First Laoshan Black then Genmaicha. Individual flavors that blend late in the back of my mouth. Like you,I keep thinking about what I can create with the tea.

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
