I’m pretty disappointed in this one. They only had the 150g bag, so I have a ton of it too. I don’t taste anything pancakey. It’s only weird lemon. I guess that’s from the fermented lemon. So this just turned into a not very pleasant lemon tea. It’s not refreshing since it’s too heavy. The lemon sort of just attacks your throat. Shorter steep for this one.

My sympathies on the large amount of unpalatable tea. I have almost 300 g of GABA oolong that I thought was a great deal until I discovered I didn’t like it. I think it’s three or four years old now.

Oh no, that’s so much! Yeah, I opened this one as soon as I received it because I was so sure it was going to be great ):

I wasn’t fan as well unfortunately. But apparently I found a way in my last session. Grandpa and 7 grams. But… maybe it needs to “breathe” a bit?

Leafhopper

Yep. Never purchase 300 grams of something you don’t know anything about! Maybe someone else on here will want to buy or swap it from you?

I disliked this one too. Sorry you ended up with so much!

I was disappointed by this one too. Shame, since it sounded so good.

I know! I’m always all over teas that include “pancake” in the name. Hopefully there’s someone out there who I can pass this along to!

Steepster is glitching for me, so I can only access it using my laptop, which I don’t use very often, so I unfortunately will not be as active on here as I prefer to be.

I’m an event planner who always has two mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, and listening to podcasts.

Favorite flavors: Almond, strawberry, nutty, dessert flavors, melon, mint, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
