I really enjoy this tea, but I just can’t afford it. A Teavana employee convinced me to buy it (I’m such a sucker… but at least I bought only the smallest amount possible) by saying it could be steeped 4-5 times and still taste great. However, appropriately air drying the leaves is a challenge for me so when I would have this I’d just have multiple cups in quick succession. The first cup was always delicious, and cups 2-4 tasted about the same (but sadly, they lost what made it great the first time. I don’t know how to describe the taste). I got in the habit of steeping 3 times and then tossing the leaves, and usually I would have it three times out of obligation to make it “worth the money” and not because I was really in the mood to drink 42oz of tea.

So while this is quite enjoyable, it’s just too expensive for me and its “re-steepability” is more of a headache (done only to justify the cost) than a bonus.

I really want to try this because I’m a bit of an oolong hoar. Can you include some when we swap, please?

I started drinking loose leaf tea in December 2011. I usually use Teavana’s Perfect TeaMaker at home, and their Remi Mug at work. Some day I would like to have a cast iron set… a red one with dragons!
