The look of this one intrigued me. What a wee little leaf! The smell is classic black – perhaps a little bit stronger than most.

Oh yes, this one is stronger than the others. I don’t know that I’ll be keeping this one around after I finish my 10 g sample. Perhaps a shorter steep would make it more drinkable? But today in my black tea experiments I was attempting controlled steeping times to compare across variations.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), travel, science, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not always in the mood for them. Greens and pu’erhs I’m working on, but they’re coming along at a snail’s pace. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino). Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss, to be continued…
