This tea is so confusing! From the name, I thought it was a straight-up oolong, but reading the ingredients I found out that there is black tea and green tea in here as well. I’ve never had such a mix of bases! And how in the world are you supposed to steep it? The label says to use boiling water, but I was sure I’d end up with a nasty, bitter brew doing it that way. I went for 180 degrees for 3 minutes and it still came out slightly bitter, but it’s drinkable. I’m not getting much orange at all, just a lot of jasmine floral and a bit of a grassy vegetal flavor. Very odd!

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ~ C.S. Lewis

I was introduced to loose leaf tea by a roommate in 2012, but it wasn’t until I stumbled upon Steepster in 2014 that I discovered a world of tea that went beyond Teavana and the grocery store.

My tastes continue to evolve, but black tea is currently my favorite. I am especially drawn to strong, malty breakfast blends to wake me up in the morning and flavored dessert teas to sip throughout the day.

Just about everything in my cupboard is available to swap, so feel free to ask!
