I’m actually getting to like this tea. I read LiberTEAS tasting note and used his directions, thanks by the way. I used 180 water for a 2 minute steep. The tea was a honey amber color, and I actually got some honey and fruit notes. The tea was silky tasting with a light mouthfeel, something I’m not used to as I usually drink black teas. But, I liked the second steep even better, I used 190 water for 3 minutes. The tea was golden in color and more woodsy tasting. The tea had a subtle sweetness to it and I enjoyed it.
