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, crafter, and brand-new Assistant Library Director. Give me an engrossing book and a wonderful cup of tea and I’m in heaven.

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

How I use Steepster has been evolving since I joined. Yes, I use it for my personal “to buy or not to buy” info, but I’m enough of a goofball that I hope it can amuse others more often than not.

I’ve also started to become anal about my tea (times and temps). That’s surprised me. I finally realized that I should respect the leaves like I used to respect the beans. I also take my tea plain unless otherwise noted.

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.
