Scooped a bulk sample at Central Market. This one is on the more oxidized side, and it’s good when I want something a little more robust than my usual fare of greens and lighter oolongs.

It tastes woody and nutty. No bitterness at all. The taste is balanced and has more complexity the longer you sip it. This is something I would pick for a day when I have to wake up before dawn and my feet are cold.

Bio

I am lucky enough to make my living as a martial arts teacher and as a barista. When I’m not training or making cappuccinos, I relish cooking, reading, growing plants, and of course, drinking tea.

I love greens the most… the grassier the better! I also love oolongs and whites. I have a weak spot for anything with jasmine, mint, or lavender.

Location
