drank Lu Shan Yun Wu Green Tea by Teavivre
1251 tasting notes

I agree with the other reviews – this is good.

What I really want to mention is this is the best example of why I love to use a clear glass vessel when I steep. The leaf is so interesting. It looks like a pile of knotted thread until you spread it out. Then it looks like fine green wood shavings. In the bottom of the press with a mug of 175F water the leaf comes alive and puts on an amazing display. It wiggles, like the blades of grass I watched as a kid when a bug crawled through. Then it intensified until the bottom was shaking and twisting like butterflies trying to free themselves from their cocoons. What a show – and then I get to drink it too! Thank you Teavivre.

I love glass teaware but I always seem to break mine!

I have been drinking Green Tea by Trader Joe’s Specialty Teas in tea bag; not as enticing/inviting as your tea; but enjoyable to me.

I am easing off tea drinking; I should say have been easing off. It got to be too much. I lapse at times as well. I don’t like the wording “lapse”; I get those republican notice to renew my membership since it has “lapse”; irks me at times the things I receive. Sorry, not to do with tea. Clear glass has great effect for viewing of tea, but if it is very hot, how do you hold it?
One of the libraries that I frequent has some clear glass rounders with no handles; and when I saw them, they made me think for tea drinking. I may get two as I renew my friendship with them. They are not nice and not friends; they abuse me; all do. Happy teas. good review.

Sometimes a little “tea vacation” helps you appreciate it more. (I don’t have the strength of will to vacation for more than 12 hours :)

My tea vacations are never on purpose.

Seule771 and Amy oh, my press has a plastic frame around the top and bottom with a plastic handle. It allows me to pick it up and pour with out getting my fingers too hot and it also adds some protection for the glass. I bought mine at Starbucks – they are only $10 at our shop. The glass can break if you hit it wrong while cleaning. :(
