I got this from Rachel Thank you!!!!!! I’m glad I got to try more teas!

Have I been spoiled? Wah! No!

This tea tasted like hot water with a hint of cardboard… It got better as I went onto my 2nd and 3rd steeping. It became more floral but the cardboard aftertaste was still there. Is it my gaiwan? I have enough sample left to do another steeping session. I’ll use a different vessel… So strange…. Or its my spoiled taste.

Either way, I can’t rate this right now :)

I too found this one a bit odd. Perhaps playing with non traditional steeping parimeters is the way to go.

I’m a medical resident who happens have an addiction to tea! My tea collection keeps growing and growing, which just means that I’ve got to drink more tea! When life gets a bit too stressful, I love sitting down to a nice, warm cup of tea.

Swap: I am always up for swapping! Take a look at my cupboard and send me a msg! I always send extras since I have too much tea! :)

My cupboard contains all the teas that I own. The teas that are unrated but are in my cupboard are ones that I haven’t opened yet. :)

Likes: chai, all types of teas, dessert teas, Dan Cong & milk oolongs, dragonwell & kukicha greens, flavored rooibos, vanilla anything
