Thank you so much for sending me this from your stash Ricky! *cyberhug *

Yeah, it wasn’t a bomb after all – whew! ;P

Wow, this tea is strong and fierce, just like the tiger on the tin suggests. It’s as dark as the pu-erh I had a few days go and the mouth-feel is almost as stiff. It’s got that smoky-tannin scent that I tasted in Adagio’s Yunana Jig – now that I think about it, what it reminds me of is the scent of green willow twigs being burned.

This tea has a smoother, more pleasent consistancy than its counterpart though. I’m also picking up a bit of spiciness after the intital rush of smokiness, not pepper though – it actually reminds me more of cloves.

Anyway, it’s a very nice tea and it makes me even more of a sad puppy that I missed out on getting a tin.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

Yayyy =] Glad you liked it. Maybe the Canadian customs people thought it was a bomb cause it seriously took close to a month to get to you. It’s been so long that I completely forgot that I even sent you this =]

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
