So I tried steeping this in my yixing too, and again I had no flavour! What the heck is going on? The only one that’s tasted good in it has been Davids Tea organic TGY…. HMMM

Anyways, I poured a bunch in a pitcher and put it in the fridge. OH. MY.

Oh My Oh My… it tastes like sunshine. Almost like a milk oolong that’s been steeped at higher temps so the floral flavours come out, but still has the milk/butter aspect.
I always want to steep this that way now. I keep taking a glass and refilling the pitcher and sticking it back in the fridge. It’s like an endless supply of sunshine for this STUPID rainy season. Thank heavens I have TGY.

Thank you Teavivre for this sample.

OK.. so I’ve been cold steeping these leaves at least 3-4 times and they keep giving and giving and giving. This batch is just as flavourful as the first! I love it. I now have two more teas in the fridge to cold steep. Perfect timing as it was a beautiful, crisp sunny spring day, and now it’s snowing…. =)

I am very excited to delve into as many different types of tea as possible… so this should be interesting. I am really looking forwards to tasting all the wide array of flavours that can come from pure tea leaves.

Currently, I am having a love affair with oolongs. Mostly green, though I am stretching out into more oxidized oolongs. Black teas are also in my love fest as they can be so surprising sometimes (I used to drink bagged red rose x.x)
I would really love to get to know green tea a lot more and white tea.. all tea to be honest. I want to know them all.

Tea rating system:

0-50: Do people actually enjoy this?
50-60: Slight improvement, not recommendable.
60-70: Alright, though easily forgettable.
70-80: Good flavour, though not a ‘go to’ tea.
80-90: Great tea – complex and memorable.
90-100: Extremely delicious and complex teas that leave me craving more.

On top of tea, I have a love for music. Generally all music, though I am partial to indie rock/folk/pop/electronic. Follow me if you also enjoy indie music and would like to trade some artists!

I’m always open to new tea and music suggestions. Happy tea drinking to you all.
