A lovely medium-amber color with a malty/earthy/fruit flavor. I even picked up a couple floral notes and a bit that I want to say was . . . pumpkin? Yes, definitely pumpkin for a few sips there.

I oversteeped this yesterday and was interested to note that the flavor overlay was distinctly different from that of a Chinese black that has been oversteeped. Not quite bitter, more like, I suppose woody would be one way to describe it.

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)
