Jason: “Butt tea”

Brewed in Yixing Pot

TeaEqualsBliss

Jason loves Butt Tea, doesn’t he!? I think that’s two days in a row, isn’t it!? LOL

Ricky

Haha, I’m the one who keeps brewing this tea. Everyone at the office (except Jason) loves pu-erh.

Finishing up the last of the silver needles. Overall consensus was that it wasn’t as good as it was made out to be. It’s probably partially my fault as I over steeped it so it got a bit bitter.

Oversteeped.

How did it handle the oversteep!? :P

Ricky

Bitter! Added some water and it was better. I could taste the EG + Jasmine. Strange tea from Jason.

I remember this one now! LOL – Yeah…I didn’t think it was very bold…but I don’t remember oversteeping it either…

Mike: “It tastes like cardboard. It should be called cardboard spice.”

Not sure what the others thought of it.

I don’t like these retroactive logs with supposed “quotes”. Logging these while at the office is probably the best way to ensure you don’t totally butcher what we say…

Ricky

Haha, you can log em yourself. This is what Mike said though. Write some detailed tasting notes.

Ricky: “Personally, I liked it. It didn’t last through the second steep, but it was still a fine tea with a lot of character.”

Not sure what the rest of the group thought of this one.

Jack: “It’s older than you, Ricky! It smells like Chocolate.”
Jason: “It’s not tea , it’s butt. It doesn’t taste as bad as it smells.”

Brewed in our Medium Dark Yixing Pot

I LOVE that you guys are logging again! :) teahee!!!

Geoffrey Norman

I agree with Jason, it smelled like butt. Even tasted like it on first steep to me.

Ricky

Hmm, it seems we drank this one all day. I don’t recalling brewing a second pot of tea. I liked this one. I think it was extra strong because of our yixing pot. The pot smelled old and musty.

Jason

It did smell worse than it tasted, kinda like dirty butt, but dirty in the “earth” sense, and, well, “butt” in the butt sense. I just don’t think I’m a pu-erh guy.

Jason

No offense intended to those who are fans of the pu-erh

This was okay for me. Tasted like a slightly weird black tea.

Jack: (Second Steep for 1min) “It’s alright. It’s like what you would expect. A bit of melon.”

Jason

I just tried some of this that you guys left in the pot…way oversteeped. But that’s not the tea’s fault.

Ricky

I made this tea an hour ago .

Mike: “It’s nice.”
Ricky: “It’s a little light.”
Jack: “It’s okay. Not bad.”

Brewed in Huge Glass Teapot

Jason

Is there any of this left? Been wanting to try it and of course you brewed it while I wasn’t there.

Steepster Cupboard

Well, Jack just re-steeped the first pot and to me it tastes like dirty water.
