One would think that 10g would go a long way…

Nope! I already know that I will have to get more of this tea and FAST, despite all these little samples I have that should be getting tasted and drunk and enjoyed, I am stuck like glue to this one! I carted my little basket of leaves around all day and steeped, steeped, steeped, when possible.

I love the lemon scent, followed by a mellow taste of oolong tea. I can’t describe the flavour past “mellow”, so-SO good though!

Indigobloom

agreed! I just put up with the Jasmine in this, cuz I love it! the only tea I know that can get past my allergy <:o

MaddHatter

I don’t notice the jasmine, it must be really subtle or I am not aware of what it is like, both in scent and taste. But the Lemon Myrtle flowers! oh God! I hope they make more teas with this!

Indigobloom

I think you’re right about that, I can’t find the jasmine either but it’s in the ingredients list!
Lemon myrtle makes me happy :)

Cattibrie

The girl at the store suggested that this one shouldn’t be resteeped. Is that right or do you find it is possible to resteep it?

MaddHatter

If it shouldn’t be re-steeped I would not call it an oolong. I’ve re-steeped one serving 3 or more times…

MaddHatter

I wonder if maybe she steeped the leaves too long for the first steep and therefore was not able to steep it again?

Cattibrie

Not sure but she was explaining how oolongs are different to the friend I brought in with me and said Oolong’s can be steeped up to 5 times but just not this one. Maybe she isn’t a fan of this one.

Indigobloom

I’ve resteeped this one, and it was great! Not sure why she would say that… maybe it’s got something to do with the myrtle?

MaddHatter

I desperetly wanted this last night, I guess I’m picking some up this weekend…

Bio

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?
