38 tasting notes

First brew I blew because I oversteeped it. Was nearly impossible to drink. Too strong, too ‘dark’ tasting. Tried it again this morning for just two seconds steeped (had heated the cup up and put a little hot water on the leaves) and it tasted much better. Could make out all the flavors, but they’re hard to describe; something in the neighborhood of coffee/caramel/chocolate, but none of those in particular.

This is one of my favorite tea’s…and I think it’s something like potato fries and chocolate shake. I’ve had it gongfu and by the pot with cream then added sugar…both ways equally outstanding.

Wow, sounds great! Just got a gong fu set at the office, so I’ll have plenty of opportunities to try it.
