As much as I love the Bamboo Tea House, it’s a little problematic that they don’t provide any steeping instructions for their teas. Normally I can figure it out based on past experience, but I’m having a lot of trouble with this one.

3 min at 180F has been my favorite attempt so far, but the flavors still feel buried. The aroma is very floral, like perfume, and the taste reminds me a bit of jasmine greens I’ve had, but more earthy. Other than that, though, I can’t taste much, and the resteeps I’ve tried haven’t been any better. I’ll keep fiddling with it.

Preparation

A friend once asked me, if I could have anything in the world, what would I want? I immediately answered, “Superpowers, specifically superspeed like the Flash.” He said that didn’t count because it wasn’t real, so my second choice was a cupboard full of every flavor of tea in existence. He promptly told me that that was a waste of a wish and said he would ask for the world’s biggest yacht.

But the more I think about it, the more I’m sure that I made the better choice. Slowly saving up money for higher quality teas is helping to convince me. Off I go to taste as many teas as I possibly can (and maybe dream about superpowers along the way).
