drank Graveyard Mist by 52teas
739 tasting notes

i’ve been unlucky with the 52teas i’ve been trying.
until now!
it took me maybe 4 different steeps with 4 different teas before i finally learned that i need to handle 52teas more delicately. i need to make sure the water is not too hot. and i need to steep for 2 min or less. and i need to be a bit more strict about it than i have in the past.
this is a valuable lesson!
as an enthusiastic newb i thought that being ‘close enough’ would be fine. but of course this devil-may-care attitude won’t work with tea.

i definitely like this tea.
it’s brisk.
and i especially like the creepy picture on the label.

I have the same experience with 52Teas. The base teas can be very strong so even though I want to go a little longer for more flavour it isn’t always smart. Keep a tight grip on the temp and time though and you can get a pretty good brew! :) Glad you found your trick!

it’s with advice from steepsters such as yourself Uniquity that proved the most helpful. now i’m excited to go home and try the previous 12 days of tea and do it right.
