Dry Leaf: Tiny, twisted threads of dark brown and gold with scents of caramel and some dried apple.

Wet Leaf: All uniform, now clay- brown colored young leaves with scents of hot cocoa
Liquor: Deep amber, it has the Clementine orange hue to the liquor, very pretty
Flavor: First steeping 2 minutes – Rich mouthfeel, cocoa, with a sweet honey in the aftertaste.
2nd Steep 2 minutes- Cocoa, sweetness has faded a bit but still cocoa.
Third Steep 3 minutes- Leaves are giving less now, but still light cocoa and honey notes.

Very beautiful and delicious tea!!!

I like Ayurveda, Yoga,
walking, stand-up comedy clubs.

Love chefs and foodies. Love veggies!!!!
I avoid artificial and processed foods such as diet sodas because I think those things affect your palate for tasting teas, foods, wine.
I always use filtered Culligan water for tea, no tap or bottled so I don’t find many teas I dislike bc I start with super delicious water.

Also enjoy bonsai, xeriscape gardening, my doggie, & all nature.

Preferred brewing method: Gaiwan

Favorite Varietals:
Ye Sheng (wild)
Yunnan Da Ye (large leaf)

I have stopped rating teas with a numerical value here on Steepster because I realized on May 13, 2014 (a tea enlightenment lol) that once you start to learn what teas you like, get practiced and good at gong fu, and which companies are selling quality tea,,,they are all 100’s to me because I purchase and drink what I like and the best I can find.
I respect all the work that goes into the tea that I am drinking and I like thinking about the different terroirs they come from.

Namaste!
