67

Good morning Steepster,
I had a few cups of this yesterday at the office. It’s good as an iced tea and pretty good as a hot tea, though I’ve noticed it tastes better if you add about a tsp. of sugar to it. The base tea looks like a dragonwell or something similar. This is growing on me a bit but is one of those teas I’ll be glad when the sipdown day approaches so I can get rid of it. Working is not as much fun at typing tea notes on Steepster all day – lolol

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

67, I guess, is get ride of soon:-) I am sipping a dandelion roasted root tea in tea bag from Republic, too. it has a roasted smell, but tastes quite banal. I have a bias against tea bags…does it really make difference?

Once you go loose tea you never go back…. well only occasionally.

I don’t really like tea bags because they make the tea taste like paper, good for traveling or work though

@ligongsf

@TeaBrat, you are right…no wonder it smelled like an old bag…how about the fancy nylon satchet ones? I haven’t tried them

TeaBrat

IN my opinion the mesh bags are a lot better :)

@ligongsf

just googled it. ah, i see, mesh, has holes, lol. cool concept. will see where it sells teas in mesh bags, good for office.

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
