Both of my teapots were in the dishwasher, and I wanted to fill and run it so I decided to do something unprecedented and make this tea in my glass Pyrex measuring cup. This tea has never tasted better, I wonder if it’s because I could smell it even more? Today I got the perfect combination of grassy and fruity with no bitterness at all. The package calls for 1 tsp per cup, but I used 4 heaping teaspoons for 3½ cups. My first 2 teaspoons consisted of mostly fruit, with only a fleck or two of tea leaves, while my second two teaspoons were more balanced.

The re-steep was alright, but was noticeably weaker than the first steep.

I see the Steepster ratings are all over the board for this tea, but I’ve had pretty good luck with it so far. Perhaps it’s an acquired taste? Or perhaps it’s just the luck of the scoop?

I’ve tried this one on different occasions, sometimes months apart, and I can never get it to work for me :(

I’ve done the Pyrex on a pinch too. In fact Lupicia’s Paradise green went in there a couple of days ago. I worked well for me too!

@Courtney – looking at the ratings it looks like your disappointing results are more common than my good luck with this tea.
@Nxtdoor – I really enjoy how much more I can smell the tea this way. I think I’ll be using this technique again, I’m just concerned about things falling in my tea – ick!

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
