Jillian

Wow you’ve got a lot of balls! ;P

Seriously, I think 3-4 per 8oz of water is plenty strong – which would probably be about 5 per 12oz.

Ricky

What can I say, I like my tea stronger =D

Jillian

I think it’s a mark of how perverted I am that I was waiting for you to make a remark about liking your tea ‘stiff’. XD

Ricky

How bout I like mine `thicker`? That’s what she said? Adagio good decision calling it pearls and not balls.

Jillian

LOL, yes we come up with enough innuendo here on Steepster as it is! XD

Samusb

I have a love/hate relationship with Foxtrot as well. I’m not a huge fan of chamomile, so I think that is the main factor…and that it tends to taste medicine-like at times.

Ricky

It’s the peppermint for me. I enjoy it with hot chocolate, but not so sure bout tea. I think I’d enjoy it more as a morning tea than an evening one.

17? That amazing. Still tasting of something?

Rijje

.. I mean “That’s” amazing… lol

TeaEqualsBliss

Way to get your $$$$$’s worth out of it!!!

Cofftea

@Rijje- I’m just as surpised as you are! Light taste, but it’s definitely there- it is a green after all, how strong do you expect it? lol:) It’s the darkness of the liquor that amazes me! I’m drinking 18 now and will do one more. 19 will have to steep for 40 min and I’m just NOT that patient to do any more after that.

Cofftea

@TeaEqualsBliss… actually I’m getting Lena F’s $ out of it LOL. This is one of her tea swaps. I think I paid for her postage w/ just this portion of leaves! hehe.

Linda

Just wondering but why are you steeping your tea over and over and over again. I will do 2 steeps but never this many. How come?

Cofftea

Why not? The leaves still produce a good cuppa! Not resteeping when the leaves are still good is just a waste of tea and money.

Linda

but so many times and it’s still good? Do you only steep within a 24 hr period? or do you keep it longer and refrig. it.

Cofftea

Yes it’s still good. That’s why I said “Not resteeping when the leaves are still good is just a waste of tea and money”. No it takes me 2 days to get thru a portion of high infusion leaves. I NEVER put them in the frige… gross…

Linda

Well if you leave it out and of course it’s wet you are asking for mold to rear it’s ugly head. This bothers me greatly as I am allergic to mold. Why would refrigerating the wet tea be grosser then mold? Come on Cofftea convince me, please

Cofftea

@Linda, I check my leaves extensively for mold. If there is mold I dump them immediately and wash my steeping vessel EXTREMELY well. Refrigerating the leaves itself wouldn’t be gross, but I think it’d produce a gross cuppa. Leaves are very sensitive to water temperature as they require a very narrow range of temp so chilling them seems to be a HORRIBLE idea. If scalding the leaves w/ too hot of water, what will happen when I expose them to fridged air and the aromas of whatever food you have in there? Not to mention trying to bring the leaves back to room temp. It just seems like an all around inconvenient, bad idea.

Linda

I might just give it a try. Problem is, though, if I am too frugal with the tea, then I won’t use it up fast enough and have an excuse to buy more. lol

Cofftea

@Linda, since you are much more sensitive to mold I’d start w/ 6. Why spend money on more tea when the tea you have will last you? I’d rather use the money I’d be saving for higher quality/more expensive tea. This financially allow that treat.

Linda

you know, you is one smart cookie, or should I say, cup of tea

Cofftea

@Linda, no- just economical when it comes to tea:) And greedy, I have LOTS of teas and teaware on my wish list. lol

Linda

I hope you get everyone you want (I hope I do too)

7th infusion 2 min 40 sec. The liquor really fell off the wagon, but I have a feeling it’ll be back. It’s a light peachy-ish yellow. But the flavor is still very much there. More sweet now that it’s lighter.
