I steeped two teaspoons of these cute little curlicues in about 15 ounces of boiling water for four minutes. And then…..Hello great big fat HONEYMOUTH! So sweet and thick tasting. There is a roasty grain bit. There is chocolate and there is malt. All pleasure-buttons for me. There is a little floral waft at the end it’s a sweet floral, like sweet peas. And honey, it is silkysmooth. Like Al Green. How is it possible I only ordered one ounce of this?

What’s your fave so far of the WP teas you’ve ordered?

TheTeaFairy

We seem to have pretty much the same impressions on this tea :-)
I placed my second order earlier today and got another ounce of this among other things, oops. I’m way over budget this month, summer will have to be all about sipping and nothing about spending :-(

@whatshesaid – I still have a couple I haven’t tried yet. But so far, I would have to say the Golden Orchid, this one and the Ailaoshan. I’m pretty sure I’m gonna have to suck it up and spend the $ on the Port too.

@TheTeaFairy – I’m so ridiculously far over budget. I was a miserable failure at the Hiatus thread. I need help.

TheTeaFairy

I did it, I ordered the Port actually. Triple oops. I reordered 4oz of Ailaoshan, and could not resist the description of Huang Zhi Xiang Phoenix oolong. Golden orchid was sold out, sigh. I will have to be content with the one ounce I got for now.

MzPriss

I’m probably gonna order the Port. Then I really need to quit. Except for some pu-erh.

TheTeaFairy

Lol, We obviously both need help. Any advice whatshesaid, or are you as hopeless as we are?

We are all hopeless… ;) !

Love that I’m living in beautiful Central Texas – land of good fun, good friends, good food, good music and good tea (Zhi – word.) Tasting great tea makes me hear music. Very often you will see a link to the song I hear for a particular tea.

I am always up for swaps, so stalk my cupboard and hit me up if you see something you want to try.

Black/red Chinese teas hold the key to my heart.

I don’t care much for flavored teas, especially the fruity varieties. My exceptions are chai and Earl Grey, and apparently now vanilla. Not much love for lapsang souchong either.

I sit squarely on fence with green and white teas.

If I end up in hell, my punishment will be to drink rooibos.
