I decided to forget waiting for “mental clarity” or whatever, and just try this tea already. Enjoying it now with a roasted banana cupcake (or three). I like it. It has all that lovely chocolatey malty goodness of the laoshan black, without… well, whatever it was in that tea that I didn’t enjoy so much. Beyond that I don’t know. I’ll think about it more when I brew the rest of the sample. Maybe.

subsequent steeps: 1:30, 2, 3 minutes

Sometimes it’s just nice to enjoy, without thinking too hard. :)

Bio

Hi! I’m a linguistics major at a certain infamous east coast tech school, I write, I rock climb, and I have a mild obsession with Diana Wynne Jones.

I’m also Russian, which means I’ve been drinking tea all my life — always loose leaf, and always black. Black teas are still my favorite, but of course I dabble in a bit of everything. I really like ceylon, I recently discovered puer, and I’m having a lot of fun exploring flavored black teas (and making silly fandom blends on adagio…).

My tea cabinet may or may not be accurate at the moment, as I am transitioning between locations…

Rating system (work in progress):
95 – Wow!
85 – My favorites. Cupboard staple material.
75 – Really good. Debating whether to keep it around…
65 – Quite pleasant, but not for me. I probably won’t (re)purchase.
55 – Just okay.
