Steepster Meetup

The wonderful people who run Steepster held a meetup at Radiance Tea House and Books. It is a rare day that I get to share my tea passion in person so it was a really enjoyable gathering. Dan did a really nice tea tasting for us. We sampled several pots of each of these:

  • Silver Needle white tea
  • Dragonwell green tea
  • Golden Lily oolong tea
  • Phoneix oolong tea
  • Lapsang Souchong black tea

  • I also had a bowl of their yummy summer noodles since a lot of tea always makes me hungry. Afterwards, we indulged in three additional pots of tea (sencha, keemun and a honeybush fruit blend). Comparing tasting notes on the spot was really interesting, especially the descriptions we had for some of the tastes we experienced. By the end of it all I felt as if I would float away if I had one more sip. The best part was that I won a coveted Breville One-Touch Tea Maker. I cannot wait until it gets here. My teaware fetish cannot be contained when I go to Radiance so I wound up coming home with two of the adorable goldfish cups pictured in this post.
