So far I, too, have been lucky. There are certainly those that are not favorites and they just don't get brewed as often or used for when guests are here or whatever.
For the most part I have found that turning it into iced tea, or changing the steeping paramenters has saved the tea from the trash bin. But, we shall see, as I am embarking on a tea quest and trying LOTS of new stuff in the coming weeks.
I also seem to be an oddball in that I am perfectly happy with a tea like Earl Grey or Jasmine Rooibos or Pekoe or Puerh. I have not had shu yet, I had puerh that I was told the first steep was very similar to shu and if that is the case then I am not sure I'd like shu.....but I never say never
no cup yet....but I am thinking Ti Kwan Yin this morning
