Thanks Russian Soul and Thanks Chip!

I figured it was time for a change.

Russian Soul, I love orchids! They always remind me of Hawaii, so many beautiful ones there everywhere.

Chip your new Avie is so vibrant and beautiful. I just want to escape to that exact location! I'll probably have to pack some oolong though, huh?

I forgot about that one! I ordered a sample of it when I first got into loose tea & you're exactly right. Thankfully I kept trying other teas.

LP-Thanx for the info. Will try that next time. The third steep was the best & ran out of time to try a fourth.

Thanx V!

Henley, I brew Den's Sakura just a little different than other sencha but more casual. As LP said, a little hotter, approx 176-180* for 40 sec. 2nd steep almost identical. 3rd a little hotter and longer.

Glad to hear you like it...kinda?!?!?! :wink:

Tried the Hashira this evening, too many distractions to truly enjoy it though.
