That’s the last of it. So I’m going to brew the leaves again and again unil I can’t taste it an more (or forget and let the leaves go mouldy). One of my housemates is actually leaving soon to move to The South, and he loves it so it’s good that it has not run out until now. Pretty delicious – a really good Ti Kuan Yin… not that I have tried hundreds, but it’s the best one I’ve had

I can’t bring myself to carry on after the fourth steep. The first two tasted the same almost, the fourth and final one was more than water, but not a whole lot more, and I’m happy to throw it away after that. I suppose I could have brewed it more if I had not left almost a day between each brew. I don’t know how these things work though. Does a second steep taste any different if it is made an hour after the first steep compare to a second steep that is made after 12 hours?

Bio

I moved from the UK to Australia in 2015. I’ve had a fascination with tea since university, and like to try lots of different types. My preference is for real tea over other infusions: green tea, oolong and black, including flavoured varieties. I love encouraging people to try new teas. I also play the trombone.
Ratings:
>90: Some of the best I’ve had so far.
80-90: I love this tea, likely to buy again
70-80: Good tea. Most tea in my cupboard is in this category because it’s fine to drink it all day!
50-70: I’d drink it if it was offered to me, and I’ll drink what’s in the cupboard, but I’m unlikely to buy it again.
