Directions call for 2-3 teaspoons at 194F. This smells good in the bag, kind of like honey and leather. Slightly tastes like a Dian Hong to me, except I’m getting the addition of earthy, oaky, roasty nut-like flavors, some sips even bring to mind coffee notes. That honey like smell comes through on taste too. This isn’t bitter what-so-ever (that is a good thing).

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.
