Finished up this tea in the gaiwan this past Sunday, it was very pleasant way to spend a day. After filling my gaiwan, there were a few crumbs at the bottom of the bag – definitely not enough for a full session, or even a small one. So I tossed those leftover bits in my ever growing Everything Jar. Gonna wait a little longer and toss a couple more teas in there before I give it a test steep. Cannot wait for whatever zombie brew it’ll produce hehe.

As I steeped this tea while doing my silly little tasks, I found it to be very soothing to watch the tea deepen in it’s golden color as the brews progressed. It gave me a warm honey flavor throughout with notes of dry prairie grass and a touch of vanilla.


Everything Jars (AKA Junkyard Tea Jar at my house) often result in highly interesting iced teas!


Can’t wait to try mine! It’s got some ancient Dragonwell, a high roast TGY, this white tea, a random black tea, and so much more. I also have an herbal version of my true tea Everything Jar. It’s WILD haha
