This is one of those teas which has some sort of magic when it hits the water – I could just be smelling the water all while it steeps. It changes, it is a absolutely delicious caramelly gooey fantastic scent always changing a little. Fabulous.

But the tea itself when I drink it, it does not quite live up to all of that promise. Maybe I am not using enough leaf, thanks to both Ysaurella and Sil very kindly having sent me samples, I still got a bit more to experiment. Indeed a fantastic tea, but one which is being just a little bit mysterious to me.

it’s complicated to take the correct amount of leaves because they are so long and swollen we tend to underleaf.

Bio

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky. I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am trying to make sure …

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres,Thé-o-Dor and Yumchaa.
