I haven’t had this tea in ages… everytime I see it, I feel sad since I got it as a Christmas present from the ex last year. It really is an excellent tea though.

I’m also in no hurry to drink it since it doesn’t go bad. I steeped some up today in the koi teapot I have.

I really have come to enjoy loose leaf pu-erhs. After 30 seconds, I am getting sensations of fruitiness, nuttiness, in addition to a touch of sweet cream on the finish. I did write an extensive note about it months ago, so you can read that if you’re interested.

This reminds me that I need to pay a visit to Red Blossom Tea soon!

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.
