After having some of Golden Moon’s Sinharaja and being reminded of the taste of this (as well as Erin’s comments), I decided to brew up some of this because it’s been weeks since having this last. I steeped it for a shorter period of time and had the water just ever-so-barely boiling. I have no clue what that temp would be. I was also making my lunch and had a few multigrain Pringles which I think might have skewed the taste of the first half of this cup.

But with all that combined I’m really enjoying this! I was expecting to still regret that I’d purchased the 4oz on a whim, but now I’m glad. I can taste the Ceylon, the maltiness aspect is reduced, and there’s some sweetness coming out that I’ve never noticed before. I still don’t think that I’ll repurchase this one, but what a nice surprise! NE

Bio

Proud all-around nerd, crafter, and brand-new Assistant Library Director. Give me an engrossing book and a wonderful cup of tea and I’m in heaven.

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

How I use Steepster has been evolving since I joined. Yes, I use it for my personal “to buy or not to buy” info, but I’m enough of a goofball that I hope it can amuse others more often than not.

I’ve also started to become anal about my tea (times and temps). That’s surprised me. I finally realized that I should respect the leaves like I used to respect the beans. I also take my tea plain unless otherwise noted.

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.

TG=Teagasm
NE=Nice Enough
M=Meh
