The dry leaves on this were intimidatingly black and twisty! And indeed, it is a very roast-y tea. It doesn’t have the sweet undertones of some other roasted oolongs that I’ve been trying lately, either, although there’s a lot of tea going on underneath the smoke.

Here’s a picture from the third steep, although the reflections off of the side of the teapot are keeping the twistiness of the tea from being clear:

(That’s my newest teacup in the photo as well, by the way. I had been feeling like I didn’t have enough drinkware to support my telecommuting tea habit and also like I wanted something better sized to my wee Samovar teapot, but I didn’t really have the budget for full-on-fancy teaware — and then I was wandering around the outskirts of the farmers’ market on Saturday and found someone selling a punchbowl and eighteen nice little punch cups for, y’know, flea market prices. So, uh, now I have three new glass teacups and a fifteen-cup backup stack in my storage cupboard.)

What a pretty color to the tea – sunshine! And the glass teacup is lovely – nice to have (so many) backups! LOL! I’m really really tempted by the Life in Teacup samples ….

The nice thing about (lots of) glass teacups is that now I can see the color of the tea! And I highly recommend the Life in Teacup samples — that’s how I got hooked! (Or I could share a packet of their An Xi Tie Guan Yin roasted, if you’re interested in that one…?)

~lauren.

You wouldn’t believe the timing of this – but I have two other website tabs open on my browser – one is the life in teacup website and the other is the shopping cart! I am just two seconds away from placing an order of their samples – I just came back on to steepster to check out some of their tea ratings!!! Such coincidence!!! Thank you, hugely :), for your offer, though!!!

~lauren.

Okay – done! Your post (and a couple of other ones) have convinced me to get some Life in Teacup samples! And this post may actually inspire me to use my teeny-tiny ‘wee Samovar teapot’ or at the very least, my 10 oz Rishi one (which is marginally bigger)!

Cait

Yay! I’m so excited on your behalf (and not just because I’m looking forward to your photography)! :)

~lauren.

Okay – We have to make a cyber-pact – I will (try very hard) to photograph more of my tea/teaware from now on because I do so enjoy looking at your photos as well as AmazonV’s (she is really good about posting her photos on her blog!) along with other Steepsterites! How’s that? I know we all get busy but I’ll make an effort since you’ve been so good posting your photos!

Cait

Eep! But — okay, okay, we have a deal! I will do what I can.

AmazonV

Cait, that is a very adorable teapot and cup!
~lauren Life In teacup samples are awesome I do agree, and thank you! i try to get pictures of all my teas, i mean since I can’t pass the smells and taste through the internet (yet, they have to be working on that)

~lauren.

Smell-e-vision and Scent-ternet! Hey, you never know!

Cait

Thanks, AmazonV! (And as cool as it’s going to be to get full-sensory internet, I’m a little scared of what April Fool’s will be that first year — rickrolling will never be the same…! grin)

AmazonV

oh my, I never though of that, link to some lovely floral tea and get stinky cheese or some such on april 1st!

Cait

Heh. My cyberpunk has never been the same since the first time someone pointed out the unfortunate possibilities inherent in combining “direct upload to brain” and “spam email”.

AmazonV

Cait, as in you play Shadowrun or another flavor?

Cait

…Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve played! Heh. I meant as a general life philosophy, but now I’m wondering where exactly one acquires a Spam Filter +4!

AmazonV

giggle i only play at gaming conventions, no one nearby to play, and i haven’t gotten to play in 2? years but once a gamer always a gamer :) how about some ice built to go after spam…..

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea!

A lovely Oolong. A very rustic appeal to it, it is woody, earthy, and deliciously roasty-toasty. I really like this! My review of it will publish in a couple of hours on SororiTea Sisters … watch for it!

Gently Toasted/Roasted type taste with a juiciness to it that makes it quite memorable! Pair that with the woodsiness and you get a nice cuppa!

Soft mocha sweetness and subtle spice open a rustic Wuyi which balances its smokiness and juiciness quite well.
