Tea Review Tuesday - The Beginning of the Steep

Here we are with the introduction to the previously-promised tea review posts! I will try to include pictures, when I can, if of nothing other than the tea itself or its container. The official title for these Tuesday sessions shall, originally enough, be Tea Review Tuesday, and I look forward to sharing my thoughts with all of you. A note about my rating scale, when I use it (which is almost always): my ratings are very much enjoyment based, as you will see on the scale. Everything is rated relative (in my mind) to other teas that I have tried and how I felt about the experience. As always, questions or comments are always welcome!

For this first week, I am going to post three different reviews today, for your reading pleasure! Enjoy, and I look forward to your thoughts.

Another note: If you are unfamiliar with the term "steep," it is a verb used in the tea community, which describes the process of making tea through leaving the tea in hot (or sometimes cold) water. For example, "I steeped my tea for too long," means that I left the tea bag or loose leaves in the water for longer than I should have or than I meant to do.
