84

Nice cocoa-esque smell in the bag. Upon steeping, it has a classic tea smell, a little vegetal smelling too. Has a classic tea flavor, plus hints in the background that remind me a little of artichoke (comes out at higher temps). Relatively smooth. I made some iced and sweetened and liked it that way by far, would make a good every day iced tea. Hot score 80, Iced with sugar 84.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 45 sec

Bio

I’m basically a bum with gourmet taste.
I’ve been drinking tea since I was a youngin’, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
