Wow, been awhile since I’ve been here. And – lo! – the site is working! Double-celebration!

This tea had three things going for it: One, it was from Nepal. Two, it was an oolong from Nepal. Three, it had the word yeti in it. The fact that it was going to taste good seemed to already be a given.

This is the first Himalayan oolong I’ve tried that actually mimicked the taste of an oolong for Taiwan or China. I like the muscatel kick of the region, but this offered something more traditional.

And, of course, in “traditional” fashion, I had to write more about it…and mythical creatures: http://steepstories.com/2013/04/16/wrestling-a-wild-yeti/

These tea’s are tricky. My tea friends and I at Happy Lucky’s really had to play with temp and timing…throwing the rules out the window with these tea’s. Worth it though, the results proved to be wonderful.

I agree. I just kinda went with what I felt like.

Good! Some did better with lower temp’s and became magical. I’ve got a mind to talk to Pat and see if they’re going to be at the Rocky Mt. Tea Festival this year (hope so!)

I moonlight as a procrastinating writer and daylight as a trader of jack. I appreciate good tea, good beer, and food that is bad for me. Someday I’ll write the great American novel. And it’ll probably have something to do with tea or beer…or both. In the meantime, I subsist.
