Boring. Tried first as recommended then with more leaves but still just tastes like hot water. Bland white tea with no hint of floral flavors let alone whatever that “Cabernet Flavoring” is supposed to do. A nice cup of plain silver needle would be much more satisfying and interesting.

Bio

I’ve recently discovered the world of loose leaf teas and, more importantly, careful brewing. Wow, what a difference! I liked tea when I was steeping bags of it in whatever came out of the red spigot on the office water cooler but I love, love, love it now.

I heat water in my beloved Cuisinart PerfectTemp kettle and brew right in the cup. Never any sweeteners and very, very rarely any milk.

When not drinking tea, I’ve been known to teach gemology, knit, jump onto airplanes and trains at a moment’s notice, watch sumo, make jewelry, read the first halves of many books, dine finely, sing in the car, design webpages, belly dance, learn about stuff, and try anything I haven’t tried before. If you’re a Myers-Briggs buff, you probably know by now that I’m an ENTP.
