Informative sampler

This mini collection has very different tasting teas. Each one has different steep times and temperatures, different colors, and very different personalities. I had a lot of fun comparing the teas to each other and figuring out which one is my favorite.

It's also a nice way to see if your palette is sensitive enough to pay extra for the Gyokuro. That tea is relatively expensive, and I learned that I don't particular enjoy it, especially since it is steeped at such a low temperature and I like my teas warm.

As a primarily oolong drinker, I was very pleasantly surprised by the Hojicha and may consider adding it to my rotation.

The Sencha was nice, but I still prefer Dragonwell (not available from Three Gems Tea) as my green staple. Although I may rotate it in periodically.
