This is one of my “always in stock” teas. It’s the same tea as Seven Cups Monkey Picked but it’s been roasted longer… it’s still a light roast to me, though ;-). I brew this one regularly and have found that it’s even quite tasty when brewed in my cast iron pot. Usually the lighter teas can’t stand up to that pot.

Anyway, I drink this tea on its own or I sprinkle some osmanthus in when I brew it. I don’t use as much osmanthus as they use when you sit down at Seven Cups, but I like that addition. I often only finish about 3 pots in a day, so I brew the remaining infusion(s) and put them in the fridge. This makes a delightful iced tea. I drink it on its own or with Trader Joe’s Peach Medley juice. I’ve also used it to make a cocktail with sake, peach medley, and the tea.

Boiling 1 min, 45 sec
