A little update on Quince Eucalyptus.

I prefer 2 tsp over the recommended 3 (1 Tbsp) as that reduces the tart quality which allows more delicate flavors to come through. This tisane is good for 2 steeps western, and while the second steep gets a little drying, it also develops a sweet nectar-like note that complements the tartness. Bumping up the rating 9 points. I’ve never had a tisane like Quince Eucalyptus and it fills a gap in my preferences that I didn’t know existed until trying it.

Maybe I’ll try cutting down the amount of tea I used in the one tea I have that has eucalyptus in it… I think I used around 1 Tbsp (it was 3 grams, but I have no idea what that would be in the spoons since I’m using weights) per cup of water.

Always open to gifting or swapping teas. I do send international when feasible. Please follow and send a message if you see a tea in my notes or cupboard that piques your interest.

Tea became a hobby and my daily drink of choice some time late in the last decade. My introduction to loose leaf came in the form of dumpster-dived Wuyi oolong packets that somebody left upon moving out of an apartment building. From there, my palate expanded to teas from across China and the world. I used to focus more on taste and still harbor the habit, but after trying sheng puer, I tend to focus more on how a tea feels in my body. Does it complement my constitution? Does it change my mood or does it enhance my current mindstate? Flavored teas are not a favorite but I do drink them intermittently.

In terms of who I am, you could consider me a jill of all trades. Specialty is not my strength, as can be seen in the spread of my tea notes. I might have attention issues. One thing I will always love is riding a bicycle.
