104 tasting notes

Backlogging from this morning.

One day you are walking through the woods. It’s a sunny day, new growth deciduous trees, past season’s leaves covering the ground in layers of leaf mold. A faint whiff of something floral wafts past you on the light breeze. Following the scent you come out into a clearing to discover an abandoned house, crumbling into ruin, with a giant lilac tree abutting the remains of a stone chimney, roots pushing through the age-softened mortar of the stone foundation.

Yeah…it’s kinda like that.

1st infusion: 2 minutes, boiling water

2nd infusion: 3 1/2 minutes, boiling water
The lilac note is barely noticeable this time.

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

Bar Harbor, Maine, United States
