Good morning Steepster.
I am having a rough day already as shoulder and arm pain kept me up again last night but that seems to be more of my normal routine than not. Also I drank some yellow tea around 5 pm and I should not be drinking caffeine at all that late. Just couldn’t resist!

This came in the March Steepster select box, I believe. It’s a nice medium bodied tea, malty and with no tannins or astringency. It’s nice enough but I wouldn’t say it’s bowled me over in terms of its flavor profile. This is pretty good plain but I also enjoyed it with some soymilk. Definitely a decent tea but not something I would really need to keep on hand.

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

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
