Recent Tasting Notes


Steeped this western style with maybe 1tsp leaves, 4 minutes in 16oz boiling water.

I’ve been using my newleaf tea set a lot – love a BIG cup of tea. I had been using the bodum tea-for-one but it took forever for black teas to be cool enough to drink and I didn’t like the plastic infuser. I love how this one is glass and metal – no flavor changes from the materials, which I MIGHT have noticed on the bodum one, not sure. You can check out the newleaf set here: http://whisperingpinestea.com/newleafset.html as well as a ton of different teaware in the ‘forlife teaware’ section of the accessories tab.

The tea! It’s pretty delicious, it has the woody-sweet taste I love in dan cong oolongs and also a flavorful body for how light it is. Lightly floral qualities and a hint of smoke perhaps. Very mildly astringent – but it makes me want to keep drinking it all day.

Will be trying in the gaiwan later today.

Have a good morning, all! :)
