Steepster's Ultimate Holiday Tea Contest!
Found out about Steepster through the Damn Fine Tea folks… looks like corkd but for tea, which sounds fantastic. Looking forward to finding new teas.
This contest is the cat’s pajamas. If I win, the first pot I’ll brew is the last of my Andrews & Dunham Nepal from Series 1. Then I’ll bask in the glory of my new batch of A&D Series 1 included in the prize package!
Good luck to all!
What I make first would depend on the weather. The colder it is, the more I want chai, so if it were a day like today, I’d start with the Golden Moon Kashmiri Chai. If it’s balmier, I’d have to choose between the TeaFrog Darjeeling or the Andrews & Dunham Ceylon — probably the Darjeeling, since I’ve got some good organic Ceylon in my tea cupboard right now, but I’ve been out of Darjeeling for a while.
If I win, the first tea I’d made would be any kind of Earl Grey I could get my hands on, because it’s that time of year for a good hot cup of Earl Grey. And then I would play with the matcha set
This is the tea-lover’s holy grail! I’d be interested in brewing up a pot of the Golden Moon Kashmiri Chai for my first treat. Then, I’d move onto a gunpowder green.
First tea I will make is the Nepal black tea from Andrews & Dunham’s Series 1
Peppermint tea. It’s my one true tea. Never needs sugar, always refreshing.
I’d make Tao of Tea Jade Oolong! So much floral lilac character. Mmmmmm.
If I won I would drink any kind of black tea. That teapot looks unbelievably gorgeous.
I keep changing my mind on what tea to brew first, but given how gorgeous the pot is, and that the leaves would be visible, I would have to choose something like Blooming Tiger or one of the other flower teas I have that are meant to be looked at, too! I have a collection of these balls of tea that “bloom” in the cup or pot but rarely use them because all my pots are opaque!
