The Early July TeaLog Catchup !

So this tea has some tasty honeyed notes but never really stood out to me. It’s just been good basic tea. But lately I’ve been using a bit more leaf instead of increasing the steeping time, which I usually do, if I like a tea stronger than the recommending steeping times.

When I tried that with this one for the first time I was rewarded with a delicious cup of honeyed hay. It was so good and the second steep was somehow just as good or better.

2nd steep: approx 15 mins.

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.
