74

So recently discovered that a friend of mine is a tea fan, and she gave me a two bags of this and a bit of unidentified loose green as a way to cheer me up. My pet rabbit was recently discovered by the dorm RAs, and was promptly kicked out, which makes me terrible upset BUT she will take care of him for me till summer. So all is well once again! And now with added tea.

So this is one of first hot oolongs that I’ve had in sometime and it was as delicious as I remember them being. The tartness of the pomegranate melted into the light taste of the oolong. I really like how delicate and light the tea was overall. Downside, kind of bitter and doesn’t re-steep very well. Very pleasant, but may not something I buy with my own money.

Glances at the log entry and then glances at today’s Steepster Select Coincidence? Or IS it? 0_o

haha just saw this too! you’ll have to ask @jason…he’s the spy…I mean…erh the one responsible for that Select choice :)

Jason

I was just worried about the poor bunny and wanted to spread awareness ;)

But seriously, I’ve heard good things about this oolong, especially from people who drink flavored teas, so I thought it would be a good choice to feature (plus it’s on sale now). It wasn’t until after I had setup everything that I noticed your tasting note. *Looks down at ground bashfully :)

Jillian

The timing was just too perfect. XD

The tea sounds quite tempting, but I just ordered from H&S recently. I’m glad you guys are featuring this company though. :)

Jason

Yea, they have good quality products that I think the community would enjoy. Are there any other specific companies you’d like to see in Select?

Jillian

Well really I’d be happy to see any tea company that isn’t either:
a) A US only company (like Tavalon) or
b) Charging ridiculous prices to ship outside the States. (ie. Rishi and Republic of Tea charge around $20 minimum for shipping to Canada, and Samovar charges $40!)

Adagio and H&S are both great companies with reasonable shipping rates and so is SpecialTeas. Mighty Leaf teas are great too, although those might be too mainstream.

I’m assuming you guys want to stick with the larger tea companies.

I understand that as a european I’m in the minority around these parts but if you could find someone, anyone!, who didn’t require you to pay in blood for shipping fees across the Atlantic, it would be awesome. To that end I suggest taking a look at teaspring.com who has very reasonable shipping to both America and Europe

I was just reading about this one in the H&S catalog that was sent to my house. Gotta love those tea catalogs. drools

Remind me to check here more often!
Thanks for worry about my bunny, Eckhart Eckerson! I was really close to losing him, truly last minute save. Still, not having him following me around is a real downer. At least he’s safe and I can see him.
I still don’t believe you Jason, you totally planned it (jk).
But on the out of the States thing, I totally agree. I’m planning on going overseas for about a year, and will definitely need some good links. Or a place to live, but tea comes first.
