:lol: lol...I like asparagus tea...and broccoli tea, etc...

I scraped the bottom of 3 tins of Japanese tea and had exactly enough for a session, freeing up 3 tins for shincha :wink:

It is decent, but it is like "leftover broccoli tea."

:D


Nepalese is not a tea too commonly mentioned, I have had a few Golden Nepal that were on par with many much more expensive Darjeelings.

Was this a sample you were trying?

BTW, makes really nice component to iced tea blends!

Wow! You had a field day with your shincha!

Yes, this is my first shincha. I am going to stop at these three. I am planning to get some first flush Chinese greens, so it will be a lot of new tea.

I paid off my camera with this paycheck, so next week I can order my shincha.

Today I had my first Bai Ji Guan (THANK YOU) and now I'm having some silver needle. I'm saving the very last of my fukamushicha for when I really need it.

Remember, you can put unopened greens in the fridge if they are heat sealed, foil bags...keeps them fresher longer!

I checked Teas and Teaware, just because I love learning soo much about the different teas and whatnot! However, it is hard to pick.

Hey there, Chipster! Yes, one of several samples received. I agree good ones are on par with really nice Darjeelings. Will try the others and then play around with iced. Thanks for the suggestion!

Lots more cupping today. Wheeee![/list]
