drank Mint Sencha by Pique Tea
2309 tasting notes

Life has put me on the easy-to-steep, bagged-when-possible, oh-my-ears-and-whiskers-I’m-late track, so K S’s reviews, and kindly supplied samples, of these little crystals intrigued me. Heat water. Stir. Done. No wait.

The English Breakfast was so strong, I just started with a larger mug this time. Result: a light, lovely, surprisingly fresh cup. Nice balance between the sencha and the hint of mint. Neither overpowers.

Yeah for no wait! And yeah for tea that surprises. I expected to not like these teas, instead I very much enjoyed them.

I’ve been quite busy as well so what I’ve been doing is “bagging up” my loose leaf tea. I grab a tea I need to use up, grab DAVID’s drawstring paper filters (they stay closed which is why I LOVE using them)and I fill up a Ziploc baggie with the tea bags and that’s what I use when I’m at work. It’s really been helping me use up teas I want to get rid of + tea bags are just easier on the go.

I haven’t seen the drawstring kind—nifty!

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
