BLARGH I just wrote a note and it got eaten!

Okay, cliff notes version: bright and brisk like a typical ceylon. Some borderline astringence but I think I came close to oversteeping so that could explain that. Perfect for iced tea (I got this as part of the Upton Iced Tea Sampler) but nothing unique. Dry leaf was very fine, almost like coffee grounds and the smell was malty and earthy.

I made 1/2 gallon of this with my typical iced parameters. It’s tasty and cheap and I’ll drink what I have, but I won’t go out of my way to get more.

A few of my favorite teas (in no particular order):

*Dessert flavored blacks
*Breakfast blends
*Virtually any black tea (but lapsang/keemun!)
*Dancong oolong
*Sencha
*Dragonwell

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
