Backlogging from yesterday.

Thanks go to Jillian for the chance to try this tea :)

I have got to say, I love the color of the liquor: dusty, antique rose. The disparity of the primarily rose aroma and hibiscus taste threw me a bit but it was still enjoyable. Pleasantly tart with a lingering aftertaste of roses, it made me want some candied rose petals to munch on. I’ve never had candied rose petals but I suspect they would go perfectly with this.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 15 sec

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)
