Sencha. Only two steeps. I don’t know if it can go more because I usually stop drinking it halfway through the second cup. I’d been enjoying the grassy taste more lately, but still can’t drink too much of it.

2nd steep: 1 min 30 sec.

I steeped this for less time or at a lower water temperature and ended up with a first steep that was moar vanilla and less bite and more similar to the second steep.

Profile

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.
