SSTTB take 1!

I missed out last year due to my busted ankle, so I’m stoked this time ’round!

This is my first blooming tea, and I’m about 3 pots in and it’s finally all the way open and pretty! I need a bigger tea pot….or more people to drink the tea, haha!

I feel like I could have safely used hotter water (not quite boiling, but hotter than my usual 175 for green teas) because even with the 3 steeps being long ones, there’s not really any bitterness. But ho boy is the jasmine punchy! Yum!

Definitely not the highest quality, but it’d be a great one to have on-hand for entertaining purposes because it is so mild, not to mention pretty. I’d pull it out to serve at a wine or fondue night with friends for sure, because I think that even the non-tea people would appreciate it.

Now I REALLY have to pee, hahaha!

Part of the Heffalumps and Woozles brigade!
I’m a tea addict. Oolong, Pu’ehr, and Lapsang Souchong are my favourites. I share tea with my pony, Java (Competes under the name “Bear With Me”). I’m pretty sure I’m the only person ever to buy matcha JUST for their horse, haha!

I’m on the hunt for the PERFECT peach tea. Something juicy that screams “I am PEACH!” when you take a sip. Ideally a Green, White, Oolong, or Yellow base (I find peach black teas to be too much tannin not enough peachy goodness). Suggestions are appreciated!

Bear with me (haha) while I update my cupboard. I recently did a huge reorganization and my cupboard is no longer accurate.
