Thanks again to Teavivre for sending me this awesome sample!

Once again, I find myself trying a black tea. This one was actually better than the other, with an even smoother flavor. It also had the bonus of not getting bitter or astringent when I accidentally let it sit and cool for half an hour. Unfortunately, I have a busy evening ahead, and don’t have time to talk about every single cup I had, but expect a more detailed review next time (and there WILL be a next time.).

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 15 sec

Bio

I am a university student, studying Computer Science, who found that I really enjoy a nice cup of tea. I finally got into loose-leaf tea in August of 2011. I am currently in the process of expanding my horizons, and have found that I have a particular fondness for Oolongs in general, and Wuyi Yanchas in particular. The unique mineral taste is very appealing to me, as well as a nice Sencha. More recently, I’ve developed a taste for Sheng puerh, white tea, and black teas. The only things I’ve tried that I didn’t like was Shu puerh, but that might have been because it was quite young. Regardless, I’ve been slowly expanding my horizons, so if you have any recommendations, please feel free to send me a PM.

Just for the heck of it, my other interests include classical musics (Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Verdi, Debussy, Shostakovitch, Rachmaninoff, Liszt, and Wagner, to name a few composers). I also have a fondness for a bit more modern music, like The Beatles, all Jazz (by all, I really do mean all), Gorillaz (I love Demon Days), and a couple of Indie artists you will never run across unless you play a lot of semi obscure Indie games. Also, I love cats.
