So now I know what this one tastes like when you oversteep it! I can barely recognize it from the gentle delicate green I know and love.

This is… like seaweed? With a bit of roastiness like a genmaicha?

Summary: NOT GOOD.

I wish I knew what I did, but I guess I wasn’t thinking when I steeped it. Maybe I used water that was too hot?

Your description actually makes it sound tasty to me. Haha

Haha. Maybe that’s how it’s supposed to taste? I just like it muted.

Alphakitty

That sounds good to me too haha! I love seaweedy greens.

OMGsrsly

A local place has a Golden Lily Oolong that tastes like you’re drinking wakame -the seaweed out of miso soup. So, Alphakitty, you might like that!

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
