Sipdown! I used more leaf than last time (probably a bit more than 1 1/4 tsp) in about the same amount of water. I’m smelling & tasting a rather strong genmaicha-esque toasty rice (which I’m enjoying) with a very noticeable metallic tang (which I don’t like so much), neither of which I can recall when I tried this before. Now that this tea is back in stock, I’ll consider picking up a bit more to play around with when I’m in North America next.

Bio

I grew up in New Jersey drinking Celestial Seasonings, and now I live in England, where I developed a taste for a good builder’s brew. Sometime in 2012 I bought my first loose teas, and my collection has since spiraled out of control. Still quite a novice, due to not drinking enough tea to keep pace with the amount I keep buying.

Some things I’m pretty sure I do like:
- most florals (jasmine, orange blossom, osmanthus, etc)
- buttery, vegetal greens
- malty blacks (usually with milk & sugar)
- oolongs that aren’t too heavily roasted

Not really feeling the flavored teas lately, for whatever reason.

All tasting notes use unfiltered hard tap water, unless otherwise specified.

No real method to my numerical ratings yet, but we’ll see what develops. So far I’ve only given ratings of 90 or higher if I actually get excited while drinking the tea.
