Backlogging this one for Saturday. This is one of those teas that smells nicer than it tastes. It’s not that it tastes bad; it’s just a bit of a let-down after the amazing smell it gives off while steeping. It’s a light-tasting oolong, and the first infusion was pretty good, but the second was too floral for my taste. I might try a shorter first infusion next time to try to make the second one closer in taste to the first.

I’ve been in love with tea since I discovered the awesomeness of loose-leaf tea about four years ago.

In general, I prefer black, green, oolong, and matcha teas. I’m not a big fan of flavoured teas, but every so often I come across one I like. I also like peppermint, but that’s about it for tisanes.

I recently tried matcha for the first time, and it’s seriously growing on me.

My favourite tea accessory is my chasen holder, hence my profile pic, and my favourite teaware is the shudei kyusu I got from Den’s Tea for 99 cents. I use it both for cooling water and steeping tea. Probably the best 99 cents I’ve spent. :)
