Definitely needed a light tea like this on such a hot day. It’s sweet and refreshing but not overwhelming. I always keep a tin of this on the tea shelf.

Did you make it in your new Breville?

It hasn’t gotten here yet but I’m sure I will once it is in hand :)

Cofftea

Oh, I thought you were able to take it home w/ you yesterday. Sad day!

Lol, Jason from Breville had some problems with his flight so he couldn’t bring it but it is probably just as well. Lugging that 12 blocks and then on the crowded bus home would have been quite a challenge.

I wasn’t quite sure how to brew this tea since I didn’t feel like pulling out a gaiwan. Using an infuser basket and ceramic pot worked pretty well just the same though. Boy is this stuff green! Definitely a lot more cloudy that regular genmaicha. It was sweet but the nutty taste I love was still there.

This was an unusual find but I actually quite liked it. It was smooth and mellow with just a hint of a citrus aftertaste. My boyfriend even liked it and he sweetens everything he drinks :p

Just tried this the other day. I really enjoyed it and I usually don’t ‘love’ pu-erhs, but maybe I just haven’t tried the right pu-erhs.

LissaMarie, what kind have you tried? Cooked? Raw? Amber?

Yum. I LOVED this tea. I am a big mint and vanilla person so it exactly my tastes. I was a bit scared of the licorice but the flavors are really well balanced.

I’m deathly afraid of the licorice…

I finished off the last of this stuff. It’s definately a staple for me. Sweet green tea with a rich nutty aftertaste. Gotta love “popcorn” tea :)

I have to admit, I’m a little bit jealous of your tin. Such good stuff! And what a good boyfriend!

I’m so impressed, its rare to find people who have a passion for lapsang. Its a fantastic tea, one of my favorites no doubt.

Nothing like a good Darjeeling on a crisp fall day. I drank two whole pots of this stuff today. Delish!

Temps and times? Couple of days ago. No worries you’ve got a good cup of tea.
