Another of my samples from Rachel!

I used 2 tsp. of leaves to 1 cup of water, per thepuriTea’s steeping parameters. The dry leaves smelled very clean and fresh – like unadulterated tea. I didn’t get any other scents, fruity or milky or otherwise, but that’s fine with me – I’ve been drinking a lot of flavored tea lately and it was nice to remember what tea is like in its pure form.

The steeped liquor is a light yellow color, really reminds me of a sencha, actually. And it tastes like a sencha with a thicker mouthfeel. I like both of these things separately, and never imagined how nice they would be when combined. Almost like the best of both worlds for me, since I love thicker teas, but also the flavor of greens.

Mmm. It’s almost a good thing they are out of stock, because otherwise I would be spending more money I don’t have on this!

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
