Thanks for sending this one my way for me to try Dexter The dry tea is incredibly smokey, but that translates in to a brew that is not quite AS smokey as the dry suggests. When this is first made, all i can taste is the smoke. Good for me that i enjoy the occasional smokey cup. As it cools though, the cherry starts to peek through and it becomes a cup with much more going on. Going to need to try this one again to decide where i stand on it :)

Final Count yesterday: 80

I didn’t find this one as smokey as you are suggesting. Odd for sure, changes as it cools – definitely. I’ve had it a few times and am still on the fence. I think it’s better with less leaf, cooler water and longer steeps – but that’s just me. :)

yeah i’ve got more to play with. Maybe i was just having a smoke sensitive day haha

Tea from yesterday! thanks for sharing this one VariaTEA. I love me some ginger. As always i’d prefer MORE ginger in this one but suspect that for most, this is balanced fairly well. It was a really enjoyable cup last night.

drank Yunnan Royal Gold by Imperial Tea Court

I prefer this one than the golden ring from imperial tea court. This one has a much smoother body and less astringency. It’s got that malt that i love while still being a rich tea. Thanks for sharing these with me dexter!

I did a comparison today with the two teas dexter sent me that were similar in nature. Turns out i like this one a little less. Again, not a bad tea but in the grand scheme of how many teas there are in the world to drink, this one isn’t a MUST HAVE. it’s a good cup, malty, a little astringency and overall good. Just not the best :)

thanks for sharing with me VariaTEA so this is pretty muted down…and for whatever reason, i’m getting a MINT flavour in this..which is just a little weird. this isn’t bad, but it’s pretty average.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
