I made this in my gaiwan and did 6 steeps. I wrote more details in my tea journal so I’ll just give you the quick version. The first few steeps were very strong with a leathery/smokey sweetness and earthy undertones. The last few steeps turned earthy but there was still a nice, light sweet smokey flavor. The aroma was deep and woodsy through all of the different steeps. I liked the last few steeps the most.

I love camping, longboarding, listening to and making music, hiking, yoga, cooking, the color blue, The Beatles, and of course the wonderful world of tea!
My journey with tea started about a year and a half ago. Since then I’ve learned a lot and that my favorites include oolongs, pu-erhs, and silver needle. I love a good dessert tea but I have found recently that I’m craving pure teas more and more! I look forward to learning a lot more from my fellow Steepsters :]
