I adjusted the steep time down this time and yielded much better results without the bitterness. This is a great, inexpensive tea that has a good balance of smokiness, maltiness, and pepperiness. This specific Yunnan is lighter on the cocoa than other Yunnan blacks I’ve had.

Again, you’ll really only get one strong, robust cup of tea. The second cup tastes much weaker, and a third cup, while still having a dark liquor, has little flavor at all.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 30 sec

Bio

I started drinking tea in February 2011, so I’d say I’m still pretty new to all this. What with all the flavors and health qualities of tea, I’ve fallen in love with the hobby!

My favorite teas are blacks from China’s Yunnan Province, but as I try more and more oolongs I notice that I’ve got a big taste for Wuyis and Dan Congs.
