I must admit that this tea tastes much better today than my first crack at it. I have a sneaking suspicion that tea is yet another food item that when shipped to my state, needs to “relax” before the flavors are right. I brewed this at a much lower temp. for a much shorter time and the hazelnut flavor came out in a much greater way. Before this was more leathery-pu’erh tasting. Now it is more grounded with the hazelnut.
