70

Steeping time: 7 3/4 minutes

I got so caught up in making my breakfast I totally lost track of time…and I can’t even say it was the kids this time! I really need to buy a timer. But for all that there isn’t NEARLY as much bitterness in this as I had expected from the over-steeping!

This is definitely a fruity tea, but having never tasted a passion fruit I hardly consider myself fit to judge whether this tastes like one or not.

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)
