The moon must be in the proper phase or a week off work has actually rested me enough mentally to actually pay attention … but after bumbling through most of a sample tin, I got it right—-it tastes peachy! Second steep, particularly, after the greenness wore off.

It’s funny how our perception of the same tea can change from day to day.

MsWhatsit, the more I try different teas, the more I have noticed that. I have had teas that I initially I thought were just okay that are some of my favorites now. To complicate matters more, sometimes minor adjustments in steep time, temp and/or quantity of leaf can make a big difference. I usually wait until I’ve had a tea a few times before reviewing it.

Bio

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
