Back-logging from Sunday.

I over-steeped this. Never over-steep Earl Grey, it tastes horrendous. I’m going to hold off rating until I can give this another try with a 4 minute infusion. Who knows, with such a quality base tea it might actually get me to like Earl Grey…I suspect not though. I’ve smelled it countless times, drank it twice, and Earl Grey just does not seem to be my cup of tea.*

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)

Location
