This is a sample from Stephanie – thank you so much

I’m going to continue later. I love it. It’s nice, sweet, juicy bell peppers. There is slight cooling sensation in after sip in earlier steeps. I wonder if it continues later on. Enjoyed it a lot.
Thank you Stephanie for the great experience. I would buy it if it would be some specials

This tea is very rich. Dark burgundy color and very thick, almost viscous.
Woody and sweet but not overly. Some plum and cherries detected. Very strong sweet aftertaste
I had a very nice gongfu session and will continue tomorrow .

It’s so frustrating when notes get eaten!

Stephanie

I hate when that happens. Tea sounds good though!

boychik

I’m beginning to think that Steepster is annoyed with me haha
It happened again. And I’ve noticed some of my older notes disappeared :(

JC

That sucks! It happened to me several times so I started writing them in wordpad and just copy/pasting into steepstes… you know just in case :P

boychik

JC, it’s a great idea except I’m on vacation and I only have iPhone :(
When I come back I will write in word pad. I have to survive somehow another month. Thanks for recommending ;)

This tea was kinda disappointment . I probably didn’t brew it right. 195F 5 min produced slightly chocolate flavored water. I just couldn’t figure out parameters fr my Steepster fellows. I had such high hopes. Oh well…
I have 1 tsp left to experiment.
Thank you so much CharlotteZero for sending me many amazing samples. I don’t see your notes lately, but I hope you will come back. Miss you <3

Stephanie

This reminds me I need more Chocolate Eclair from Fauchon. Hurry up Vente Privee! ;)

boychik

Chocolate Eclair is delish. Maybe they will have it for Labor Day?

boychik

Stephanie, I got some Fauchon one Peach and one Pear in Marshall’s . Will send you when I will get back home

Stephanie

I need to visit Marshall’s more often… You know, just in case.

Stephanie

And boychik I have a couple of new things you might like to try :)

boychik

It’s 9.99 a tin. Not bad. I tried them and I liked them. Not perfume , fruity, not extremely bold, but true to taste. Kinda naturally tasting

This tea is a super generous sample from Terri HarpLady – thank you .
OMG. This tea is something I experienced only in some sheng. Besides being sweet and fruity ( I pick plums mostly), some nuts, it’s rich with eucalyptus notes. What it did to me is I have cooling sensation in my stomach. This is nice feeling on a hot day. I feel very peaceful that even my kids don’t bug me. Prepared gongfu 4g 100 ml 205F

Wonderful tea, I think I want to buy it right now.
Thank you so much Terri for giving me a chance to try it.

Oh yum!!!

boychik

Do you have a sample? Cause I just ordered ….

mrmopar

Glad you posted this. Got some with the last order forgot to add it in. It’s a good one.

MzPriss

I have avoided YS because I’m scared of yet another addiction – between Mandala and Whispering Pines. But I keep seeing y’all mention all these yummy things. I’ve been to the site and it’s overwhelming. At some point, I’m going to post a “school me on YS” thread so I can get some guidance about what I NEED from them. This sounds lovely.

mrmopar

Yunnan Sourcing " oolong13" for 13% off all Oolong on the site through 7/9.

boychik

I still keep sipping, it’s so giving. And totally like that menthol sensation

MzPriss

mrmopar – you’re a Temptor (which is like a Dementor – but nice)

boychik

MzPriss, I can send you samples but only in Sept. I’m away for the summer. If you can wait… I bought today this tea and super cute Yixing( not expensive and only 120 ml)

TheTeaFairy

Nope, i don’t have that one. I still have a gazillion others from lovely terri though!!

MzPriss

Awww that is sweet boychik. Let’s talk in Sept. I hope you’re away for fun!

boychik

Lots of fun with 3 kids.

Terri HarpLady

If you don’t want to wait until Sept, I can drop some samples in the mail to you :)

MzPriss

@Terri Woo! I would like that. We need to do our swap as I have some Golden Monkey with your name on it :)

Terri HarpLady

I know, I didn’t mean to put you off on it. Just got super busy with that porch. :)

MzPriss

Oh no! You didn’t! I’ve been intensely busy myself. Friends were here from Dallas all weekend and I’ve had this de-clutterong/re-homing a bunch of my possessions weekend and then right back to work. I’m also trying to re-configure my meditation space. We will totally get around to it and it doesn’t have to be this minute. Besides, that porch needs to be all spiffy when TeaF and I move in visit :)

Sample size. This is nice, especially after heavy lunch. Roasted oolong, chestnuts, subtle sweetness. Would be perfect if they serve it in Chinese restaurant, many times tea is just gross there. I liked it.
Resteep was good and I decided to add tiny amt of maple syrup. Worked perfectly taming charcoal flavor.

Cup from last night. Made it latte style with tiny bit of maple syrup. While it was good I probably had craved something else. If only I knew…

Preparation

Stephanie

Hate when that happens

boychik

Right. Also my water is different now since I’m in PA. Nothing beats NYC tap water.

I can’t find any notes for this tea even though I had it many times. Oh well

Nice smooth but something is off. I dunno. Probably me. I blame my taste buds. I should retry some other time .

did you hve this one or the other 2 versions lol and yes steepster has been eating a lot of notes lately

mj

There’s a whole thread about Steepster eating notes!

TheTeaFairy

Conspiracy theory?

This is a sample I got with Zen Tea Life sale.
There is nothing I can add to looseTman review. He nailed it perfectly. Some plum, some wine, a little of tobacco, smokiness is subtle.
This tea is completely different fr Spring Keemun by A&D or Pine Keemun by Wispering Pines.
Very nice afternoon cup. I think I love my Yunnan blacks more. But it’s like comparing apples and oranges. Still want to try Teavivre’s offerings to make up my mind. No rating since I’m exploring .

Preparation
1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML
looseTman

Thanks, that’s very kind of you!

mrmopar

He is pretty good!

looseTman

You both made my day! Happy July 4th weekend!

boychik

Happy 4th of July to you too. I’m going to watch fireworks, they decided to do it tonight in our community in Pocono ;)

looseTman

God Bless America

mrmopar

+1 looseTman and all of us on here also.

TheTeaFairy

I agree with everything that was said in this thread :-)
Just love you guys!!

MzPriss

The reason Steepster is so incredibly awesome is that it is populated by awesome people!

boychik

I can’t say better than all of you people!

looseTman

+1 mrmopar: “God Bless America” and Steepster!
Terri HarpLady: Back at you :)
We love you too TheTeaFairy!
Agreed MzPriss: Steepster people are awesome people!
What a mutual admiration society!
boychick, you started it all!

It’s delicious . Smells like cantaloupe / honeydew. True taste. Very nice on a hot day . Resteep was very good as well. No sugar for me but I think it would make it even more delicious. I think I’m going to enjoy it this summer;)

Flavors: Cantaloupe, Honeydew

Stephanie

Sounds summery!
