Thank you for the sale, Ost! The spring harvest of this tea is my FAVORITE lighter black tea. I was hoping this one would be just as good with a little bit more flavor. It kind of is, but the last time I had the Spring harvest, I didn’t use two teaspoons, so it’s a little difficult to compare. But the flavor is perfect for a lighter black tea. The leaves are gorgeous amber orange and very twisty and fuzzy. The flavor is honey, caramel, sweet potato. The three steeps are pretty consistent. I’d always use two teaspoons in the future as less than that isn’t really the same. So so delicious. I’m surprised there isn’t more of a difference in flavor, because I’ve noticed I am kind of sensitive to different harvests. Maybe there really isn’t much of a difference in these harvests though.
Steep #1 // 2 tsps. // 10 min after boiling // 2 min
Steep #2 // just boiled // 2 min
Steep #3 // just boiled // half mug // few minutes

Glad it went to someone that enjoys it more than me! :D

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

I’m always in search of: Hattialli, Qu Hao black, Jin Jun Mei, teas using marshmallow root.

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
