Wow. I was so pleasantly surprised with this one. From the smell upon opening the sample package I was a bit discouraged. It had a very strong nut/mulberry/something I can’t exactly pinpoint smell to it. I brewed it, not having very high hopes for it. I then got distracted and forgot it was brewing, making the brew time much longer than I would have liked. I thought I’d ruined it (luckily it’s a tisane), as I thought it would be way to powerful in the first place, judging from the smell.
SUPRISE! I actually really enjoyed this one, despite my over brewing. The flavors melded together quite nicely, and the nuttiness of the tea was delightful. I was very happy I gave this one a shot, and will be buying some for future enjoyment. Hopefully I can expand on this tasting in the future when I have it right in front of me, rather than doing the tasting note a day after.

Bio

Started brewing loose leaf tea about seven years ago. Excited to share my experiences and learn more from everyone on here!

I’ve found I Prefer:

Oolong Teas
White Teas
Green Teas
Black Teas
Flavored White Teas
Flavored Black Teas (depending on the base tea)
Flavored Oolong Teas
Pu-erh’s
Certain Herbals/Tisanes

I’ve found I Dislike:

Bitterness/Astringent Teas
Strong Floral Teas
Fruit Tisanes (at least hot)

Matcha and Rooibos teas tend to be hit or miss with me. I guess it depends on the tea and my mood.

That being said, I’ll give anything a shot!

When I’m not brewing/sipping tea, I’m usually reading, listening to music, working, or in the summer, kayaking/camping/hiking! I also enjoy a good movie now and then. I’ve got quite the collection going. It almost rivals my tea collection! ;)

I’ve only just returned after quite some time away – Steepster stopped working for me in 2013 and I FINALLY remembered this password and was able to get back on here in 2017. But I’ve been drinking tea all along the way!

Happy steeping!
