This tea truly lived up to the description for me. So yummy. I don’t know if it’s a placebo effect or if the St. John’s Wort is at work, but I can’t help smiling when I drink this tea. I stocked up on it today because it will soon be gone (so sad!) but oh, I plan on resteeping the heck out of these delicious leaves.

The only complaint I have is that it is so easy to oversteep this and it gets so bitter. My go-to time is 4 minutes, because I like the blacks and oolongs a bit weak and the greens and whites a bit strong, but 4 minutes is definitely too long. This isn’t one I can do without a timer, I always mess it up and then I am so sad!

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
