I think I need to use more leaf next time and be a little more careful about steep time. (A variable temperature kettle will defintitely be put on my Christmas list this year) The flavor of both the tea and plum was very light. I was kind of expecting more spice too.

What I did get from the plum was nice a natural- a little bit tart, but nothing a little brown sugar couldn’t fix! Reserving judgement on this tea until I try different steep parameters.

A variable kettle makes it so much easier to brew correct temp tea! I was always incorrectly brewing my tea before I got mine!

i loved the idea of this tea, but i could not make it work. hot, cold, in between…. nope!

Well I’m hoping I’ll find the. Magic steep parameters on this. I’ve had a couple of really good plum teas lately, so I was looking forward to trying Butiki’s take on plum tea.

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
