Trying this once again and finding it too strong and at 2:15 steep time it does have some very noticeable astringency in it. I am realizing I’m putting too much leaf in my brew or this tea really does need some dairy to tame it down. I’m not enjoying this very much. Rating is going down some more as a result.

Bio

I love loose leaf tea! While I gravitate towards black teas, I’m getting more into oolongs, greens and whites. I’m always looking for great fresh new teas to try. This tends to lead to the problem of ordering more even though I already have way too much.

My collection of tea has kind of gotten out of hand. After taking over several kitchen cupboards, it has spilled into the back hallway now with containers of tea stacked up there. I think I need more hours in the day to drink it all.

I’m also a vegetarian who loves dark chocolate, photography, travel, computers, web programming, technology and cats.
