Thanks to LiberTEAS I was able to try this one! :)

This one was a pleasant surprise. It’s sweet and semi-smooth and a tad buttery. I had half of it HOT and half COLD…bother were winners!

I’m kind of liking everything I try from this company. I’ll put this one on the list!

Nice!

The flavor is vegetative with slight buttery notes. The buttery essence is not as strong as some teas that I’ve encountered – this is more like lightly buttered veggies. There is also a nice floral note toward the finish. Very nice, indeed.

The more I sip this, the more I like it. It has a smooth and rich and sweet flavor. SO good.

and… it goes well with egg rolls, too.

I’m in one of those not-paying-attention modes today. I started with this tea, courtesy of LiberTeas in the HoppiTea tea exchange.

It clearly says 180/2-3 min on the package, but I steeped it at 205(96C)/1.5 min. The funny thing is that this tea, instead of being wretchedly bitter, is amazingly good. It’s a really vegetal, really creamy tasting tea. It’s not a sweet tea by any means, but it’s very complex nonetheless. The tea starts out slightly bitter (probably my fault), but then blossoms into this intensely creamy, vegetal flavor that mellows out and lingers for a while. I wish that I hadn’t used the entire sample for this one, but it’s too late now.

Thank you, LiberTeas!

Another of the many LeafSpa teas I ordered a while back (before they closed their doors).

I steeped some of this in the Breville and poured it into my brand new Timolino to take to work. (One of the several tea ware items I allowed myself to buy at my recent visit to DAVIDSTea since I wouldn’t let myself buy any tea other than what I could drink there.)

Really loving the Timolino. The best travel gadget I have. I love the fact that you can sip it from any direction without taking the lid completely off, and you don’t have to push or poke anything to get the tea to come out. But that’s beside the point.

I didn’t spend a lot of time with this prior to pouring it in the Timolino so I’ll have to do a more detailed note later invoking other sense perceptions, but for now I wanted to record my first experience of the flavor.

I think I might steep it a bit shorter next time because I get a little bitterness around the edges, but other than that, this is a very refreshing tea. It has a vegetal flavor that isn’t overly sweet or buttery but has a little of each. I’m thinking a very light bok choy? Maybe a little spinach, too. There’s a pleasant aftertaste that’s vaguely nutty, in a very light, greenish way, like the aftertaste of Brazil nuts.

I’m going to enjoy getting to know this one.

Woohoo for your timolino!

I’m so glad I got it!

Fjellrev

That is so exciting that you got a Timolino! I love mine too. Which colour did you get?

__Morgana__

They call it “midnight green.” It’s a really intense, deep metallic green color. V. pretty.

Fjellrev

Nice. :)

TheTeaFairy

Sadly, I don’t like their teas anymore but I’m ADDICTED to DAVIDsTEA teaware!! I just find it annoying that they are continuously out of stock on many items…
Glad you are enjoying your new baby, great colour!

__Morgana__

TF, I really love their tea ware, too. They were OUT OF THE MASON JAR at the location I visited or I certainly would have had to get one of those. ;-) As it is, I got this, some bubble cups and a couple of spoons. I really like the way their spoons feel in the hand. Nice weight, nice balance.
