85

Mmm, tasty. I have been enjoying a pot of this all day. 8g of tea in my 170ml duan ni pot and short steeps. It is slightly smoky and smooth with just a touch of prickly astringency that stays on the tongue for ages afterwards. It has a lovely aftertaste and left me feeling all relaxed and mellow. I doubt I shall have the patience to age this one. Might be time to buy several more bricks of it, just in case! :)

Bio

I am a historical consultant, Vikingologist and tea enthusiast! To be honest, I have always liked decent tea, but in 2011 I started working at learning what good tea really is. I continue to expand my horizons and discover new teas with the aid of my chums on Steepster, much to the chagrin of my wife, who despairs of my enthusiasm.

My favourite teas are Darjeelings, sheng puerhs and Anji Bai Cha. I return to these every time, after whatever flirtation with other teas I have been involved with.

I no longer rate the teas I drink because keeping ratings consistent proved to be rather hard work while not really giving me anything in return.
