This is my 2nd tea from the BBBB, sent by TastyBrew, & it is a Tasty Brew!
The leaves are fine & kind of downy, in shades of grey & tan, with a warm sweet aroma.
I used 2 tsp in my mug, steeped 4 min.
The flavor reminds me of beer a little, kind of a yeasty malty almost hoppy taste, a little caramel, and a mouth filling sensation, leaving my tongue feeling thick. A nice mellow vibe to start the day with!
Thanks TB,

Sil

yay!

OK, now I created both product pages (although they wouldn’t let me copy & paste the photos from the website), & I’ve written reviews. You & TB need to get on it, pronto!! LOL :D

Next time I’ll try this in my gaiwan, since it has GongFu in the name.

Sil

So, lets make a rule that whoever buys the tea first has to add it to the database!

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!
