Finishing off the rest of this sample today. I learned if you oversteep this, it is truly terrible. I got a second steep out of the leaves which I am enjoying a lot…

I thought about trying this, but Russel said it shared some of the flavor profile of Chinese Flower, which I thought I would adore but wasn’t crazy about. He recommended another, and I am glad he did. Glad you like it, though! Have you tried Chinese Flower?

I have not tried the Chinese Flower.

Ha-hah, but soon you shall! I STILL haven’t mailed your Ruby 18! LOL! I will get both in the mail on Thursday!

TeaBrat

Aww. you’re so good to me. :)

I would imagine the lemon [or even lime], would be good with gunpowder.

You’re so right! I oversteeped it the first time and it was TERRIBLE. I’m drinking the second steeping of it right now, and it is soooo much better. I can’t believe this is the same tea!

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
