I steeped this tea according to directions. I steeped it for 2 minutes at 190 degrees F in a porcelain teapot of 24 oz of water ad 4 tsp of green tea.The toastiness was very prevalent but was perfect. It did not overshadow the green tea but smoothed out the green tea where green tea tends to be a little bitter if not careful at times. I love the toasty aroma and how well the tea went down very smoothly. I paired this tea with a wild greens and kale salad topped with diced vegan chick strips and a poppyseed dressing. The tea and wild greens/kale salad paired well with the green tea bringing out a beautiful meal accompaniment. I made a 24 oz pot so I drank the remaining pot of tea after my salad was done. The tea holds well without a meal. The smoothness, toastiness, and slight vegetation of the green tea was perfect.

Flavors: Smooth, Toasty, Vegetal

Late 40s tattooed teapunk drinking, sci fi, steampunk, and comic book reader and knitter, who enjoys the tea experience with my meals, a good sci fi or comic book, jazz, or Cha Dao with peaceful Tibetan style music and incense to create my home Cha Dao experience. I practice yoga daily. If you do not find me doing a meditative long 1.5 hr walk on weekends then I am cycling. Mother of an American Bull Dog and Red Nose Pit – dogs are my children :)

A fictional character I would love to have tea with and become friends is fellow tea lover Star Trek Officer and Vulcan High Command Officer T’Pol. Everyone picks Jean Luc Picard but I would love to have tea with T’Pol who seems so much more interesting. Otherwise, I also see myself as a space explorer visiting planets and enjoying tea time with new friends on other planets.

I am also an author of a motivational and vegetarian cookbook who tends to pair my tea every night with my meals.

My first love is Chinese black teas but also love other black teas from Indonesia, South Korea, Kenya, Himalyas and more. I love world cooking and world teas. I also love green teas that have a vegetal and maybe seaweed quality. I drink my teas naked, unless I have a herbal tea before bed such as an ayurvedic tea as a “yoga” tea where I will add almond, coconut, or soy milk with honey or agave.
