Another tea I’m at the end of. I really appreciate it that Ricky was willing to part with some of his stash when I missed out on ordering this limited edition tea. Thanks man! :D

I had this tea with milk – maybe a bit too much milk as if took away some of the spicy notes. It did lessen the bitterness that comes with most black teas and it sweetened the flavour a little bit. I got a rather mild resteep out of the leaves (@5:30) that tasted more like a light Ceylon than a Yunnan, so I’d only call this tea ‘okay’ for multiple steeps.

Try the first steep at 200F, 2:30 min. Second steep boiling, 4-5 min.

I would but I’m all out and not likely to be getting more! Thanks for the advice though. :)

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!)
