9/22/14 builders tea with breakfast 12oz/212F/whole packet/five minutes or so?

Nice tea, excellent with milk and sugar. Exactly the pick me up I wanted on this cold rainy Ohio morning. Pleasantly smoky and rich.

A lot of the steepster teas are strikingly similiar to teas I get from Upton, and this one is no exception. I wonder if Upton wholesales.

I did not measure the tea, so maybe 3g? This tea is delicious! Lovely light edamame creamy greenness. Pale gold liquor, and a wonderful toasted rice aroma.

The more I drink this tea, the less I enjoy it. The wet leaf smells wonderful, so I think I just need to figure out the right brewing. Gong fu this morning and yesterday didn’t show it well, so I think I’ll try western.

9/19/14 sunday yixing. 8g tea/8oz water per steep/short steeps
Earthy dry mineral goodness. Surprisingly light, possibly because my teapot is very young. A taste like pine forest after rain.

decrease water volume. i do 6-8g for 100 ml for shou. especially its aged, so not that strong. Just my 2c ;)

I’ll try that. I think I want to get a smaller pot for puer – the 8oz is nice for a get together, but too much for me alone.

boychik

if you are going to get one, i recommend not to exceed 130ml. 100ml i find is ideal for 1 person. Btw, good to see you ;)

Thanks! It’s nice to be back online. A smaller pour has really brought out the richness in this tea, and some nice berry notes.

I love this pitcher. It is perfect for cold infusing the loose teas I prefer. 30g of tea over night in the fridge, and I have a lovely days worth of iced tea ready to go first thing in the morning.
