Ok, so I had this again last night. Now I get the baked flavour. I tend to understeep teas because I like more delicate flavours. I steeped it for longer with more leaf and the baked taste came through. Yummy!

Good! Following the recommend steep times on these high end tea’s pays off. The delicate flavor is layered. Instead of it being obvious and flat you have to duck into the rabbit hole!

I tend to follow the steep times, but usually err on the shorter side of them where a range of is given. Occasionally I ‘destruction test’ teas by steeping with the max recommended steeping times and amount of leaf. I like that Teavivre provides samples that are large enough for me to experiment in this way. Yay for Teavivre. :-)

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.
