Resteeping this morning’s leaves. Still good.
Not particularly exciting, but it’s decent.

A good, smooth green tea, stronger than most sencha I’ve tried, but not as powerful as a hojicha.

I just wish that this tea was more lasting, in terms of the leaves. It is good for one large pot, if I leave it a while to steep, but steeping a second large pot is impossible.

How strange, halfway through the first travel mug for today of this tea and it has a bit of an aftertaste like pipe tobacco. It is not bad, just strange, and something I have never tasted in this tea before.

Second travel mug is much better. I don’t even have the leaves steeping still, and yet somehow it tastes more like vanilla bean than the first mug did.

Drinking the remains of last night’s pot, chilled. Quite refreshing.

Mmm, good afternoon tea. Mixed the leaves in with leftover leaves from last night’s Ti Kwan Yin (Dragon Pearl Whole Teas). Hopefully that should smooth out the flavour.

Bio

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
