  1. Steepings

I took one of my mother-in-law’s tea bag from her tea box on the microwave and open the packet putting the bag in my cup and I pour the cold water into the cup and put it in microwave for few minutes and leaving it to steep for two more minutes.

This is a tea I have had and have enjoyed. The aroma is a heady vanilla bean scent and the tea itself is wonderfully light and vibrant. You simply want to keep drinking and drinking the tea until it is all finished; which is exactly what happened.

I like Bigelow teas and perhaps I should not since names bother me and folks pile it on knowing of this weakness. I had another wonderful cup of tea that is all.

195 °F / 90 °C 5 min, 0 sec

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.
