I think I must have made a mistake in preparing this tea because it was awful, not at all per description. I prepared it as per the instructions (jing tea produce brewing instructions specific to each tea they sell) – 1tbsp per cup, 3min, nearly boiling water. The dry leaves had a wonderful rich, dark earthy aroma and the infused leaves smelled almost like a green tea but creamier. The infusion however was massively, massively overpowered by tannin. I couldn’t bring myself to finish the small pot I made and it was so bad that I wasn’t tempted to try adjusting times and temperatures with a second infusion. I think that I must have put in quite a lot more than what jing tea considers a tablespoon. In future I think I will use a proper measuring spoon to avoid this kind of mistake.

I’ve been away from Steepster as a while, and for reasons I cannot fathom I also stopped drinking very much tea. That is a error in judgement I am currently rectifying, so I thought my return here was appropriate.
