5 Tasting Notes

Wonderfully toasted, seaweed notes, but it’s not fishy in any way. Lots of umami. Emerald green color. I drink this tea and read as part of my evening ritual.

I was contemplating on whether I should put this in my shopping cart or not a few days ago when I was ordering from Den’s. I wish I did. Well, next time then…

160 degrees. 2.5 minutes. used to steep this too hot, a thermometer to calibrate my electric kettle setting made a huge difference.

That’s quite the description there Richard! LOL! I’ve never known how to describe it since it’s a relatively unique flavor so I refer to it as the “Keemun” flavor. Not being a smoker I’m not sure how accurate you are but I could imagine it to be pretty close.

160 degrees. 3 minute steep. This batch is getting a bit old. Need to get a fresh batch.
