I should have let the third steep sit longer before drinking it. Ah well. Mild but good. The forth steep is still creamy smooth. Astringency is gone. I know this tastes floral but I can’t really tell what kind of flower I’m tasting. And the apricot flavor comes out in the later steeps. Really good!

I’m checking out the unfurled leaves here and they are all two leaves and a bud. This may explain the caffeine I’m feeling. Maybe.

I’m gonna go for a fifth steep later this evening. That’s probably the last steep these leaves can take. I’m so glad I took a chance and ordered from here. Try it people!

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
