This one is another of my 10g purchase and I think I just might go back for more of this one!!

I also noticed this would be a pretty one to watch unfurl (or steep) in a glass bodum or clear glass tea pot as the leaves really open up as they steep. I should mention I almost passed on purchasing some of this because it had that mouldy grass scent that makes my stomach go BLECK and my face to pinch, but after a second sniff, I realised it was more sweet than mouldy.

Steeped it makes me think of orange pekoe in a way and I want to add cream to it and curl up with a book rather than go to work this morning. But alas one must do just that.

There is an astringency that I am learning to notice and it is not overly unpleasant, this is defiantly a tea that is going on the “Must buy more of” list, but I have to make it through all these other teas I have first.

Hello, my name is Erin, and I have a compulsive tea purchasing habit, it has been merely 12hrs since I last purchased tea…

Hey, we are here to support and encourage this addiction. If you feel the need to purchase tea, I’ll sit down with you! (well, if I ever swing by your area haha)

“Hello Erin!”
The sad thing is that we’d most likely serve tea at our support meetings.

LOL,isn’t that the truth! ;o)

How about we call the group T.E.A. – tea enthusiasts anonymous. And we HAVE to serve tea at the meetings :)

Now about this Nepal tea, tell me, does it taste a little bit like a Darjeeling? I bought a Nepalese tea (different vendor) and it was very similar in character to a Darjeeling. Sadly, I don’t like Darjeeling, and so this tea was not for me.

I am not sure, it smells similar, but I think the taste is more orange pekoe, but that is about all I have tasted. Darjeelings smell like mouldy grass to me and so I have yet to actually try one.

I find it smells quite like Darjeeling (esp steeped) but then doesn’t have that strong “muscatel” taste

I love to read and what goes better with reading than a hot cup of tea on rainy winter nights and an ice-cold tea on a hot summers day?

I used to drink copious amounts of coffee but that was just a joke, because I never drank enough water to flush out that one cup of coffee (32oz of water to 8oz of coffee?!?) and the variety in tea gives me what I need – it is not often I will drink the same thing twice.

Tea is defiantly more gentle on the waistline… Espcially since when I crave apple pie I can reach for a cup of “Mom’s Apple pie” or if I want caramel corn for my movie night, I just have to brew a cup of “Movie Night”…

I definitely have a preference for Oolongs, flavoured Blacks and a select number of flavoured Rooibos.

I love you tea, this can only get better as the extra weight continues to tapper off!

Oh, did I mention I am a reader, a childcare worker, a teacher, a friend, a sister and so many other things in a day?
