Tried the last bit of my sample of this today using my 12 oz mug and brew basket. Too lazy for gaiwan. Besides, I was curious if it would be much different this way. It is a little different, but it’s still a massive vortex of flavors and notes.

I noticed I’m also much more tolerant of mineral and roasty notes than I used to be, making this tea that much more pleasant. I just wish my taste buds would have shifted a little sooner so I could have bought more, but c’est la vie.

Bio

I’m an avid tea drinker, it’s what I drink all day and why I’m here. I don’t sweeten my teas except for the occasional iced tea or cold-brewed tea. I typically brew my teas with a brew basket in a 12 oz cup. If I brew another way I will always note it.

Dislikes: black teas, milk flavored oolongs, hibiscus, red rooibos, licorice, dessert teas, mate, guayusa.

Loves: straight teas, especially Chinese green teas, sencha, jasmine, dan congs, mint, coconut.

My ratings are based mostly on the smiley faces. If a tea is of good quality but not to my taste preference I try not to rate it because I think that is unfair.

I drink a lot of the same teas and will not record every time I drink them. I log them the first time I try them and then again if I did something different and/or got different results.

I also try to keep my cupboard updated to what I actually have for those that wish to swap, although some of them are merely samples.
