When I first got this tea, I did not like it. Too tart. I waited several months and tried it again and loved it this time. I am on my second tin of this tea. I do like to add a teaspoon of cinnamon fire (also from Dr. Tea’s) to balance it out. The best part is that you get 4 steeps with this tea.
12/6/09 On my second infusion, it is as good as the first. Smooth finish. Pairs perfect with chocolate. The tartness of the plums blends nicely with this amber oolong. I do have to brew this in my 16 oz. glass teapot as the oolong leaves need more room to unfurl:) I will be able to get four infusions from this pot. This tea is pricey, but with the four infusions it is a nice indulgence.
12/30/09 nice, smooth oolong tea; 1/24/10 love this tea:)

Have you tried his tea rubs. They’re fantastic, but I need to put them thru the spice mill.

I have wondered about his tea rubs. Which ones have you tried?

Cofftea

I bought all 3, but have so far only tasted the basic. I had it on salmon w/ a bit of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) last nite. It has great potential but for my taste must be ground. I’m going to add the BBQ to flour and the bread crumbs when I make breaded chicken breasts next time.

STAY CALM AND DRINK TEA

Steam rises from a cup of tea

and we are wrapped in history,

inhaling ancient times and lands,

comfort of ages in our hands.
