As this tea tasted watery-tart-appley the first time I drank it, I upped the steeping time 1 minute. And there was the berry. Mostly it tasted like warm blackberries with some warm raspberries and a bit of warm strawberries, all with a tart finish. Much better cup this time. I will bump the rating accordingly. Next time I might try steeping it an additional minute to see what happens.

i usually go 7 minutes with a dollop of honey when at work..but i like strong flavors

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

I plan on upping the steep time a minute at a time until it starts to get too strong for me to find where I like it at.

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.
