nomnomnomnomnomn gotta get through some of my puerh. Otherwise i’ll never get to my sipdown goal this year. I’ve been drinking this one off and on today and i’m a happy camper. I miss Mandala though…‘cause i’ll be honest while i KNOW i can email Garrett and order that way, the inconvenience of it just keeps me from doing it. I like shopping at midnight or whatever and just being able to know the order’s in. ah well…in a way it’s good since there are a LOT of teas i “need” from him.

How do you steep your mini touchas?

Sil

as i would any puerh. Either western if i’m lazy or gonfu with multiple sessions

I’m glad to read Mandala is currently accepting orders via email. Their website
http://shopmandalatea.com has had the same message for quite a while without any further updates.

Do you wash them first? I have had some totally different experiences dropping them straight unto a travel mug, sealing it up and forgetting about it for 20 mins.

Another longer steepeed tea. 4 mins today and again, much more interesting tea. Still not the harvest that i feel in love with, but decent enough.

Every time i think i don’t want this tea anymore, i manage to brew it in a way that i enjoy. It looks like this one benefits from a longer steeping time, to make it a little more interesting tea. Still not my favourite, but longer steep = worth keeping around

yep, not a fan of this one…there’s a really dirtlike/earthy aroma that is just off putting for me. The taste is better, and i think it works better gongfu than western. This isn’t a BAD tes…but it’s not something that i really want to drink ever. So going to put this in to the same bucket for anyone who wants to try some.

another tea from this afternoon. Easy drinking, nothing too complex to think about.

delicious ginger, turmeric. Yep i like this herbal. It could have a little more ginger, but that’s almost always the case.

It sounds like you’ve invested in more than your share of ginger tea! I am thinking about getting a sample of Harney and Sons ginger oolong (as if I haven’t got enough Harney tea in the house now). If you’ve tried it, I’d be interested on your thoughts as to how it stands up against the Turmeric Teas Winter brew.

Sil

sadly i haven’t tried that one. good luck on that though!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
