Inspecting the leaves this morning I was very confused. They were extremely dry and around the edges was this strange fuzz I’d never seen before. I thought it might be mold. So I rinsed this tea twice before steeping it for about 50 seconds. I think I steeped it too long. It has a very tinny taste. A very subtle sweet floral aroma on the nose, but I don’t taste any of that, as it’s covered by the metallic tongue. Next steep I’ll try for only 30 seconds.

I have bounced between tea and coffee for years now. When I’m involved with one, I dive into the flavors and am constantly on the hunt for the smoothest brew. My first real love affair with tea was the traditional english way. In my mid 20s I dove head first into Greens and Oolongs and Pu-erhs. My most recent loves are Blacks, mainly because I’m trying to kick a coffee habit that snuck up on me. Having a kid did that to me. Moving forward I’m looking to rekindle my love for tea and save coffee for the occasional cup.
