I had to add it because I couldn’t find it. __

This is I suppose what I would call upper tier Asian supermarket tea. The price is not the most expensive on the shelf per oz, but more than the other teas, about $4.99 for 6oz. Which is actually quite cheap for tea comparing to online tea vendors.

Wash the leaves before the first steep. I forgot and it was yuck. After washing though the leaves steeped into a bright oolong flavor, which is funny because I normally associate oolong as a more deep flavor.

The leaves expand alot. A LOT. I think that perhaps you could get away with using less leaf with it then. The leaves uncurled are full leaves, some with the stems still attached.

I’m using a teapot I haven’t used in awhile, it’s a bodum tea pot with one of those tea press mechanisms, however, I just took the infuser out of the pot after steeping. This pot, despite all of its faults, makes me happy because it is bright orange.

I get easily excited and tend to get into the habit of collecting things I get really really excited about- books, fountain pens, fragrance, tea and any number of things. Mostly I’m just really excitable.

My favorites are oolongs! Also high for me are greens and ripe pu’erh. But I do like most teas and I’ll try most anything at least once. I just don’t like rooibos, smokey, or banana flavored things.

My name is Christina, but there’s also another Christina with a cat as a profile picture, so I go by Flyawaybirdie.

Feel free to drop me a message anytime. I love messages/letters/etc.

NOTE!: My cupboard is not up to date. Not even close. But it does have a bunch of teas I have pretty substantial quantities of, so I put them in there anyways because I’m unlikely to run out soon. Also, if I wrote a note on it and didn’t include a TTB name or a sipdown note, I’m likely to still have some even if it’s not in my cupboard, so feel free to ask if you want to swap!

Steepsterite since 2014. :D
