104 tasting notes

I kept slightly better track of how long I steeped this time. I also used more leaf and there was a lump in there that I’m pretty sure was a dried grape though it was a little difficult to tell with all the tea leaves embedded in it.

I definitely used too little leaf last time, it was much better this time around. Sweet and black tea and wine. I couldn’t say what sort of wine (since I’ve been either pregnant or breastfeeding for the past year or so and haven’t had much alcohol) other than some variety of white, which just feels odd since the tea is a dark red.

Still need to try this one iced.

Bio

I prefer loose-leaf teas but I do like to keep some tea bags around for travel. I prefer black teas (especially Yunnans), dark oolongs, and pu’erh. My #1 favorite is Jasmine Golden Yunnan from thepuriTea.com.

Most used pots:

12oz blue tetsubin (1.75-2.0 grams of leaf. teas steeped in this get a spoon-full of sugar)

10oz green tetsubin (1.55-1.65 grams of leaf. teas steeped in this get less than a spoon-full of sugar)

5oz gaiwan (4.0-4.15 grams of leaf. no sugar)

4oz gaiwan (2.5-3 grams of leaf. no sugar)
