Mmm this is delicious tea! I love roasted oolong. This one is reaallly roasted so if that’s not what you’re looking for stay away! Besides the toastiness it has a floral aftertaste, and a very rich caramelized honey undertone. (For the second steep anyway.) I don’t know if that would show up unless you steep using quite a bit of tea like I did. Verdant sent this tea in the cutest little 5g packets, so I used the whole packet and am doing incremental 10 second steepings, starting at 20 sec. Later steepings start to get more mineral and woody.

Boiling 0 min, 45 sec

I love tea. I first tasted loose leaf when my grandpa brought some back from Russia and I remember just savoring it. Not sure what kind it was; all I remember is that it was loose leaf and it was good. =)

I really enjoy oolong, jasmine tea, and white tea. I especially love those black teas with chocolate notes! Also, chai is a constant favorite. I enjoy green tea, but need to be in the mood for it to actually want it.

As far as tisanes go, I enjoy chamomile and occasionally a mint. I am interested to try rooibus and honey bush. I do prefer teas without artificial flavoring but I’m willing to try most things.

I know next to nothing about puerh, but I like what I have tried so far.

I am consistently amazed at the flavors contained in one leaf. I am on a quest to discover all of them! Slowly, though. Good tea is expensive. :P

Other things I enjoy: Books. My family. Truth. Campfires. Animal Rescue. Gardening. Sushi. Mountain biking. Documentaries. Trees. Music. Culture. Sour cream raisin pie. Not necessarily in that order. :P
