Steeped it a little too long this time. The lichee notes were definitely taken a good bit over by those strong, pungent black tea tannins. The second steeping wasn’t bad. Subtle notes of lichee, with a smooth black taste.

Saw you on Steepster, too bad you haven’t been using it in a long time. My son lives in San Francisco and my brother (Stephen Johnstone) was with Y-WAM in Cyprus years ago.
Now he’s an ordained Eastern Orthodox Deacon in Silicon Valley, (Not that Far from where you were) at St. Stephen Orthodox Church in Campbell, CA. I have a tea blog www.teaandincense.com taken from the verse (and song) “let my prayer arise in Your sight as incense and let the lifting up of my hands be an evening sacrifice,”. What I share in my own way is how to be still with tea drinking first. Then I tell stories, often weaving tales from my own life. Blessed Nativity to you!
