Backlogging a few teas today. I’ve got all these notes and little time to write them up! First up is this fantastic green tea!

YUM! I love this tea.
It smells wonderful – sweet and refreshing. I could smell it all day!

The taste is amazing, too! Very crisp and fresh. My whole family enjoyed this one, which is rare. The beginning of the sip is buttery and smooth, with perfectly subtle hints of a grass-like nature. The rest of the sip brings a nice sweetness, something between sweet/snap peas and sweet corn. It’s just perfect, and works well with the buttery aspect I get from the brew. At the back of the sip and in the after taste is a hint of sweet nutty goodness. It really ends this tea experience on a high note! There is also no astringency to this cup whatsoever, and I LOVE that.

I think this has worked its way to the top of my favorite tea list. It’s so refreshing and soothing. It was also very yummy iced – perfect on a sunny summer’s day.

Started brewing loose leaf tea about seven years ago. Excited to share my experiences and learn more from everyone on here!

I’ve found I Prefer:

Oolong Teas
White Teas
Green Teas
Black Teas
Flavored White Teas
Flavored Black Teas (depending on the base tea)
Flavored Oolong Teas
Certain Herbals/Tisanes

I’ve found I Dislike:

Bitterness/Astringent Teas
Strong Floral Teas
Fruit Tisanes (at least hot)

Matcha and Rooibos teas tend to be hit or miss with me. I guess it depends on the tea and my mood.

That being said, I’ll give anything a shot!

When I’m not brewing/sipping tea, I’m usually reading, listening to music, working, or in the summer, kayaking/camping/hiking! I also enjoy a good movie now and then. I’ve got quite the collection going. It almost rivals my tea collection! ;)

I’ve only just returned after quite some time away – Steepster stopped working for me in 2013 and I FINALLY remembered this password and was able to get back on here in 2017. But I’ve been drinking tea all along the way!

Happy steeping!
