Gotta love this stuff. I made a pot to introduce my brother to Japanese tea before his trip to Asia next year.
to leave a comment.
Nothing like a good Darjeeling on a crisp fall day. I drank two whole pots of this stuff today. Delish!
Delicious! I can’t resist a really good oolong. When did they add steeping times and temp to steepster?
Temps and times? Couple of days ago. No worries you’ve got a good cup of tea.
This is one of my absolute favorite teas. I have yixing dedicated to it :)
c’ est un de favori aussi. et je lui ai dédié une théïère en terre de Yixing.
C’ est un thé tout simplement magnifique !
This wasn’t delicate at all, I felt like I as drinking potpouri :( Will have to retry with a different water temp.
Nothing better than a big mug of chai on a cold day…38 degrees here!
Farenheit, I take it? I love a spicy tea when the weather is bad, warms me up from the inside. _
Drank a whole pot of this wonderfully nutty stuff tonight. Where did fall go? It’s freeze here in New Jersey.
This tea surprised me with how good it was.
I hope fall comes back to you! It finally got chilly here, which is a much welcome climate change for me, but I don’t think I’m ready for anything below the mid fifties quite yet.
It’s still in the 80’s here regularly. =( I want fall!
Enjoying this tea once again. Nothing better than a delicate green before stepping out into this windy weather we are having here in the northeast.
Light and bright, a perfect pick me up for a Saturday afternoon
I ran out of green tea (gasp) and grabbed this at Whole Foods to hold me over. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it. It was floral and nutty at the same time. I drank a whole testubin full :)
Given that this is a Chinese pan-fired tea, I was surprised by how grassy or flowery this tea was. I’m a big ancient tree Yunnan fan, so it was really interesting to see what a Yunnan tea would taste like if it weren’t oxidized, which is essentially what Emerald Lily is — an unoxidized version of Yunnan. The long steep time was a bit of a surprise, too.
I don’t wanna be a brat, but it is tetsubin, not testubin. The latter refers ro floating down rivers in test tubes, a dangerous sport
My name is Nicole. I’m a New Jersey Native with a passion for tea and teaware. I don’t claim to be an expert (by any stretch of the imagination) but I love learning and expanding my knowledge of tea.
