This is probably in my top three teas so far! The item description talks about the “peppery” taste in this tea. I only notice it when I’m looking for it. Most of what I get is a smooth, “malty?” taste. It’s not as “earthy”/dirt-like as some other Chinese teas; just warm and comforting. The leaves are golden-brown and smell sweet, and they don’t oversteep, which is perfect for people like me who don’t always fancy standing around with a stopwatch. Just all-around good!

Bio

The name’s Holly, and I’ve been a tea drinker since spring of 2013. Tea is my happy place – it picks me up, it calms me down, it helps me focus, it helps me loosen my grip, it’s a little bit of positivity in each day. I do not drink alcohol, so tea is my recreational beverage. I love learning everything there is to know about it and sharing my experiences.

When I’m not drinking or writing about tea, I’m working at a music store and pursuing a Master’s degree in professional writing. You may also find me reading, writing, trying to learn French, cycling on the weekends, being a klutz, or making horrible puns and Star Trek references. Likely all at the same time.
