Oh, this is really amazing. I’m happy I ACTUALLY didn’t oversteep this. I’ve just had bad luck with teas lately and I didn’t want to ruin this one. I’m training someone to take over my post too so it’s going to be harder to log notes as well as time steep times. :|

I bought it because the community was pretty much raving about it, and it was on sale. Boy, am I happy I did. First sip is bright and golden – sweet with notes of hay. And that something else lurking in the background must be the peach – I couldn’t put a name on that flavour, but when I read the description that just felt right. :)

I can’t wait to finish this cup, and the 6 oz still in my tumbler, because as soon as I pour that into my cup, I will start re-steeping the leaves to prep for round two!

As much as I love the Taiwainese Premium Assam, I think I’d like this one on hand all the time too!

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)
