71

This just came in the mail today and I was so excited to try it. I always brew a first cup according to the directions it comes with and this tea said to brew between 150-160—I’ve never brewed anything that cool before…It smells wonderful but the taste is barely there. I"m going to let it cool more and hope the flavor develops some. Next time I’m going to brew it at around 170-175 the way I normally do a white. I’m really hoping the taste will live up to the smell!

On a side note-is there a trick to knowing what number rating you’re leaving? I just have faces and have to guess. I want this to have a 70-75 but have no idea how to do that.

Bio

I’m a fairly new tea enthusiast. I recently started a cleanse and had to give up coffee and wine for the duration. I was in a shopping mall and wandered into Teavana to try some samples…and now I’m hooked. The thing that has surprised me the most is not how the tea is replacing the coffee, but the way it has moved in and filled the wine niche.

I am loving all the recommendations I’m getting here….my bank account? Not so much. It’s going to be scary when the cleanse is over and I have to buy tea AND wine!! Oh and books and fabric…
