Backlogging. Two Saturdays ago in the afternoon.
This is the second of the two Harney & Sons tins of tea sachets that I got at the tea sale at William & Sonoma. The tea leaves look a lot like those of my A&D Dragonwell but somewhat shorter or broken up and there are no pieces of anything else in with them. They smell exactly like the pith of an orange peel in a good way. Steeped, the tea came out on the bitter side of a green tea but you could taste the orange. I think playing with the steeping parameters will improve this one. I didn’t try a second steep right after as I wasn’t fond of the first one.
I rated this tea a 60, which is on the low end of my nice range (60-70). You’d think I’d have rated it lower based on what I said above but I’ve tried it again with a lower water temperature since I drank it the first time but before I got the first tealog for it posted and it came out much better. That tealog is upcoming at some point.
