I haven’t been on Steepster for a while! I missed it more than I thought I would :)

This was one of the teas I had some time this last weekend. I mostly had the “leftover” teas, not many new ones at all.

Anyway, this dragonwell did not disappoint, although it wasn’t close to perfection either. Dragonwells must be my favorite type of green tea. I love how they brew into this sunrise, almost pastel, yellow. And I love how they smell. This one was just as flowery as the other ones I’ve had. The flavor was surprisingly strong, usually long jings are very subtle. Perhaps I steeped it a bit too long. It had all the yummy buttery, vegetal and floral notes that make this tea so special. Thank you, Yezi Tea, for offering as many as 3 samples with your orders. That’s how I got the chance to try this one :)

Next time I order from Yezi, I would love to get some of their dragonwell but I think I will settle for the lower grade (High Grade) that is considerably cheaper. I don’t think my palate will detect that much of a difference ;)

I started drinking tea when I was a teenager, my dad used to make tea a million times a day as it was (and still is!) good for his health. So he would make it for the entire family. Usually it was Lipton with a teaspoon of sugar per cup and a slice of lemon. I was fond of it made this way then a lot.

Then I would have occasional loose leaf teas, I slowly got into green tea… I would mostly stick to bagged tea though. It was just convenient.

Only recently, in the middle of 2013, did I start getting seriously into all kinds of loose leaf tea.

My cupboard only reflects what I have in ‘regular’ (non-sample) sizes. It could be that I have some tea you’re looking for, just in a smaller amount, even though it is not in my cupboard, so you can always just ask when swapping with me :)

- Chinese & Taiwanese black teas
- second flush darjeelings
- malty assams
- green oolongs
- Chinese green teas
- super-fruity rooibos/honeybush “teas”

- Japanese green teas
- white teas
- dark oolongs
- interesting dessert teas
- earl greys
- pu-erhs

- chai teas
- herbal teas
- fruit teas

- mint in blends (it’s ok as straight mint)

Apart from tea, I love reading, board-gaming with my husband, learning foreign languages (currently Spanish and Portuguese) and listening to lots and lots of music!

And if we just stick to food-related stuff I am also a great aficionado of good craft beer and dark chocolate :)
