mmmmm this was a shared purchase from the toronto tea festival between Cavocorax and i. I’m only just now getting a chance to try it out, but i swore she had it before me. Seems like steepster ate her note or i’m imagining things. :)

I’ve been brewing this gonfu this afternoon….im’ not getting a citrus note…just a sweet mineral like note that turns almost cocoa-y…maybe? I think i need a few more steepings..haha more to come but i’m happy with this pick from zhen tea!

Cavocorax

I did! I swear I even added it to the system? I remember I did it as a gongfu style cup and it really, REALLY, tasted like mushrooms. So savory and weird. It took a few cups (in our new teaware!) to get that to calm the heck down and taste better.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling as well!

Most of that is on hold these days though, including tea drinking like I used to as I have a new little one who eats up all my spare time.
