This tea was able to withstand boiling but I think there is more flavour complexity when brewed at a lower temperature.

Dry leaf has a peppery scent. Earthy-woodsy tone. Medium thick mouth feel. Sour-type wheat-y note close to the end of the sip.

Second infusion at 2:45 gave me a bit of a buzz. I’ve never experienced this with tea before and I’ve never even been sensitive to caffeine. I had trouble sleeping afterwards which may be attributed to this tea.
