This did not stand up well to some half and half, sadly. I was going for a strong, latte-ish experience but I guess I underleafed? I felt like I did 1.5 tsp. to 10 oz. liquid, but even after 5 minutes the steeped liquor was very light.

I got a hint of spice and chocolate but I think more leaf is probably the answer for next time. Note to self, then.

Honestly, it’s light but wakes up if you also add some honey.

I agree with Bonnie! It’s a really light tea.

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

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. "
