Thank you Starfevre for this sample sachet! I really appreciate it :D

WOW this is a really good black tea! Super malty and rich. I totally dig the farmer direct/ fair trade model, too. Looking at the prices on their website, this is a very affordable tea, as well! So basically it is a win/win/win!!

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 0 sec 8 OZ / 236 ML

Yay new Pu-erh!

This is a very enjoyable shu. It has the classic earthy shu flavor, but is a little creamier and nuttier than most! I look forward to exploring it further :)

Preparation
Boiling 1 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

I woke up late and I had to work today, so I brewed up a quick cup of this to take with me to work! Thanks so much for sending me some Courtney! :D

Pineapple and coconut is one of my favorite fruit flavor combinations of all time.

I’m actually having some straight matcha, prepared the traditional way, for once!

It is intensely vegetal, and a little bitter, though it might be my fault. It is probably getting pretty old, and I may have scorched it with too hot water.

Oh well, hurrying to sip up this cup so I can make some of my new Mandala teas that just came in the mail!!!!! What do I try first?? :)

Poor poor Dancong, I oversteeped it! But luckily I added some water and now it tastes just fine :)

Mmmm sweet and tangylicious Dancong!

I bought some of this from my local Target during the worst days of my cold earlier in the week. My favorite sick time beverage is freshly grated ginger root, boiled and strained, combined with some lemon juice and honey. I thought this would be a nice EASIER alternative for when I’m out of or too lazy to grate fresh ginger. The flavor is not quite as nice as fresh, but this sure works in a pinch! Ginger is SO soothing for sore throats!

I’m glad your cold is at least on its way out!

I’m FINALLY starting to feel slightly better from my cold, YAY! And I’ve been craving puerh like crazy lately. This one is particularly clean tasting, though I haven’t quite got my sense of taste back yet…I’m still enjoying it :)

Courtney

Getting better, yes!

Sil

Stephanie

I’ve been SO good lately…I don’t think I’ve placed an order since like November, LOL! :)
