I love this tea, but it’s pretty tricky to make it just right. Tried to make an iced tea with it today, not thinking that it’s a black/pu’erh and that I won’t need to make it extra strong, sooo I put 4 Perfect Spoons in my steeper, boiled my water, steeped for 5 minutes aaaaand YUCK! No amount of agave would save this – sadly it went down the sink.

Second steep, same leaves – water had cooled off a bit, and I only steeped for 3 minutes instead of 5. Still added at least 2 “shots” of agave (about half my bottle is gone now, due to the first steep). Drinkable, but still not as good as when the Tea Guides make it.

Sufficed to say, if I buy this loose leaf again it’ll be for hot tea only. If I want it iced, I’ll go get it from a DT location.

Flavors: Citrus, Earth, Orange, Orange Zest

My journey into the world of tea has only just started.

I grew up on Twinnings Earl Grey and Tetley Orange Pekoe, but new friends and interests have led me into the world of herbal teas, tisanes, and my first loose-leaf.

My tea-goal right now is to find a way to make the perfect Sweet Thai iced tea in the comfort of my own home. We used to have a Thai placed that would make it to-go, but sadly they closed and then re-opened too far away to go just for a drink.

As for non-tea things, I make chainmaille jewellery and collect ball-jointed dolls (BJDs)
