I’ve been swapping between this and the Vanilla Chai quite extensively because they’re really tasty, Whole30 compliant, and brew with ease (and even tolerate some brewing errors well). I didn’t want to bore you all with repeats of how much I love them both so I’ve calmed down on the repeated posts a bit! But I have been drinking them both, and loving them!

The JEM is surprisingly resilient to some oversteeping. Like yesterday, when I timolino-ed up the tea, then got flooded with phone calls and it ended up getting a 10 minute steep. Usually a travesty for a sencha, but there was only the faintest hint that it had been in the water too long, and even then I’m not sure if it was bitterness or just too much flavouring ending up in the water. Just awesome.

I remember getting my first cup of tea at about the age of 8. Just a standard run of the mill black, with some sugar and milk to make it palatable to an 8year old. But a love was born and I’ve never looked back!

I’ve always appreciated the quality of loose leaf, and thanks to the discovery of the fanatastic gadgets at DavidsTea while on holiday, the tea obsession has grown! Is it weird to be ordering tea and having it sent half way around the world?

I’d love to do some tea swaps with people to try new teas. I have a bit of a DavidsTea range for any Australians interested in trying some DT goodness minus international postage fees!

Ive just started working at The Art of Tea , a small Tasmanian company. They dont currently ship overseas, but im more than happy to arrange swaps with people. their full product listing can be found here: http://www.artoftea.com.au/. (December 2012).
