This one caught me with its name alone, so let’s hope I like it! Fortunately, it seems I do. I did four steeps, starting with 45 seconds and eventually making it out to 2 minutes. Each steep produced a very dark brown liquor with a red tinge. The most remarkable thing I found about this tea was how soupy and savory it seemed to me. It has a very full, chewy mouth feel, and I can’t help but feel that I’m getting lots of nutrients from it. It’s not one I’ll have everyday, but I do like it and am glad I have it in my cupboard.

Wow you’re brave:) I start at 20 seconds and very rarely increase the steeping time.

I think my taste buds are getting burned out over time…

Bio

Grandma introduced me to tea as a kid (lipton with milk and sugar; a bit poured into the saucer to cool it down and then sipped from there), and I’ve never looked back. Still have a slight preference for teas that go well with milk (or even better, cream) and sugar, but since Grandma’s day I’ve branched out to appreciate green and white teas, rooibos and pu erh. Absolutely love Mariage Freres!
