I am having more tea failure with this tea. First time I brewed it up, I followed the directions on the bag. Unfortunately they were written for a black tea, and this is actually a green. So I jotted down the parameters but jotted down tbsp rather than tsp. So when I tried to steep it this morning, I got a cup of tannic ick. So, I tried it again with less leaf, and it’s still a bit strong/bitey. I think this isn’t my cuppa. Maybe if you like teas like Rishi’s Organic Green Needles this would be for you.

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
