I brought in this tea to work since it’s in a nice small tin, and it’s not my favorite (so the at work damage of tea isn’t heartbreaking). Pleasant first steep, and even after forgetting about it on the second steep (maybe 7 minutes) it is still very drinkable. Yes, there’s a bit more astringency, but it’s still hitting the spot. NE

On a side note (since this tea came as a sample with my mom’s gift of a tetsubin): I named that new (and somewhat new favorite) teapot Marsha :)

I also received my bagged tea order from BlueQ today. Egads — packaging is even cuter in person. I’m hoping to try one before I leave today, but if that doesn’t happen, then I’ll for sure try at least one tomorrow.

Proud all-around nerd, designer, fibromyalgia manager, and Assistant Library Director/Creative Director.

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

I’m quite loose when it comes to tea prep. I also ended up using Steepster to find my “daily” teas which I have – and so don’t rate as many as I used to. And am not active here any more (because y’all would get tired of me drinking the same teas every single day – day in and day out).

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.
