I absolutely adore the look of these pearls, but I adore the look of any tea pearls it seems :D Unfortunately, the flavor is not as exciting as the looks of the dry leaf, although it is not by any means a bad tea. I notice an interesting note of buttery sweetness. Something I rather like in green teas. It is slightly too weak, however, and sinks quickly in the overall correct but sensationally uneventful (?) green tea taste. I would definitely be happy to accept a cup of this when offered but probably wouldn’t need to stock it in my cupboard.

It was really nice to try it, though. Thank you, whoever placed it in the Box (Nicole?) :D

That was pretty much my conclusion: I’d accept a cup but wouldn’t stock it. And yeah, I forgot to put my name on the stuff I put in :P

That’s okay! I thought it might be you since there was only your tasting note on the tea page before I wrote mine :D

ME & TEA

I started drinking tea when I was a teenager, my dad used to make tea a million times a day as it was (and still is!) good for his health. So he would make it for the entire family. Usually it was Lipton with a teaspoon of sugar per cup and a slice of lemon. I was fond of it made this way then a lot.

Then I would have occasional loose leaf teas, I slowly got into green tea… I would mostly stick to bagged tea though. It was just convenient.

Only recently, in the middle of 2013, did I start getting seriously into all kinds of loose leaf tea.

My cupboard only reflects what I have in ‘regular’ (non-sample) sizes. It could be that I have some tea you’re looking for, just in a smaller amount, even though it is not in my cupboard, so you can always just ask when swapping with me :)
