Steepster Select #001 Discussion - August 2011 (SPOILERS)

Got mine! Thanks for the little bonus strainer!

The package: Three generous samples in resealable opaque bags. Perfect. I’m very pleased with how the samples came through, their amounts, and their packaging.

My opinions on the teas so far: Didn’t care for the Darjeeling, liked the Ginger Peach, haven’t yet tried the Jasmine Pearls.

Am especially pleased about liking the Ginger Peach. I wouldn’t have otherwise tried it as I’m not a big fan of flavored teas, so finding I like this one was exactly why I join tea clubs: to find unexpected “likes”!

ETA:

I just tried the Jasmine Pearls. I like it. Usually the jasmine is too strong for my taste in such teas, but this is nicely balanced.

For those interested in further information on the Makaibari estate (turns out they are bio-dynamically farming and committed to not having a mono-crop) please see http://www.makaibari.com/index.php. I’m now having the Ginger Peach tea and enjoying it as well.
