New Tea!

Greetings readers, I just decided to drop a small post on my new order of tea I just received.  I got the package Thursday and have already sampled two of the three teas.  I'll be posting a review/monologue on them later next week after I get a chance to have sessions with them that don't involve oversteeping or cats dipping their tails in my cup (happens more than it should).

Not a good addition to a cup of tea.

The package arrived a bit later than I was expecting, but that's what you get when you order direct from China.  Along the way my poor teas suffered an extreme amount of stress as can be seen in this picture below.

This package shows the rigors of international shipping.

Luckily the tea itself was safe (also glad I didn't order teaware *cringes*).

Left to right: Xu Fu Long Ya, Long Jing, Jade TGY

The three teas are from Tea Spring and are: Lion Xi Hu Long Jing (Dragonwell to us westerners), Xu Fu Long Ya (Dragon Tooth), and Jade Tie Guan Yin.  I've had the Long Jing and TGY before, but these are both different harvests from what I tried before.  I'm excited to break them out and start doing some serious tea drinking.

Well that was all for this post, some reviews of these teas are coming up soon.



  1. I am a fan of your tea reviews. can't wait to hear about your new adventures.

  2. Am definitely looking forward to the Long Jing and TGY reviews. The only experience I had with Long Jing was through Dao Tea, and it proved most exciting! As per your request, I put up not one, but two reviews (well... 1 and a 1/2. LOL) Seeing your battered box makes me hope and pray that my teapot shows up unscathed. O.o and gorgeous little visitor to your gongfucha session! (s)he is very pretty.
