I am enjoying another great cup of this tea. I simply cannot find words for describing this tea. It is smooth with a complex texture; tea’s color is of malt and coffee like. There is not hint of one aroma or another that can describe what this tea smells like. It is not bitter, not astringent, and not fruity. It has a dry smell and not unlike water since water is clear with not a smell. Similarly is this tea with regard to odor.

The tea is dry on my palette and not heavy and when I take a sip, I simply want to sip continually without stopping, it is that good.

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
Steepster is offering: Steepster Select and together we’ll explore the world’s most interesting teas; with one free month and the resuming price of $24.95 for the remainder and one is free to cancel at anytime. I have no income and I live on my husband income; so would this be un-wise to do knowing where my life is at right now?
It is something to consider and thank you for the invite. Thank you for Steepster.com’s community of tea drinkers, tasters, reviewers, aficionados and all.
