Backlogging from last night.

So I finally got a chance to sit down with my box of teas from The Tao of Tea last night. Being evening I decided not to dive into the blacks quite yet and so I chose this. I ended up oversteeping it…by a lot. 14 minutes to be precise. There was surprisingly little bitterness however. The pale gold liquor tasted just like biting into an orange. Granted it was more like a just-ripe orange that might have benefited from staying on the branch just a bit longer but it was definitely juicy, recognizable orange.

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)
