So I’ve had this tea for awhile now and I’ve liked it but only so so. For I don’t know why reason, I’d been trying my honeybushes at 7 minutes 30 seconds lately instead of my usually 5 minutes. This came out really good that way. So I decided to try it at 10 minutes tonight. Again, really good like this. A stronger raspberry, a more muted banana, less candy-like overall.

Steep time: 10 mins

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
