Since I have two samples of this tea from who knows when, I figured I’d bring one along and give it a try. I have plenty for a couple different times, so I figured first up, I’d brew it western style according to the directions on Verdant’s site.

The first steep was the best, it was like a dian hong meets an assam. It tastes a lot like a cake made with malts. Very sweet and deeply flavored like a dark honey in there too.

I wasn’t impressed with the second steep but I probably did not steep it long enough.

Third steep is more like the toast mentioned by a lot of people, with a lighter honey taste, and just a bit of spice.

Will have to try it iced also, and in my gaiwan when I’m back home.
