I first used boiling water and a 3 minute steep. It melted my face and the astringency hurt my gut. Definitely too hot and too long.
Second try – Using just below boiling water and a minute and a half steep results in a really tasty cup of Chinese black mixed with what I believe is Darjeeling. It is like this wants to be fruity but won’t fully commit. There is a hint of smokiness in the background. Smooth and delicious.
Like this one a lot. Thanks TeaEqualsBliss.
Hope your Christmas was filled with family and sharing. Mom fixed a fabulous meal. I am stuffed.
We are supposed to have a blizzard over night and into tomorrow. I really need to go to work. I don’t know how many more days they will let me work. I hate snow and ice.
