water 80C-95C
steep time ca. 2 min.
1.5 gr per cup, 8 gr. for pot

The tea has a very, almost woody, and strong smell.
small black curly tea with golden tips.

1. steep : odd taste, like porridge. Not at all what I expected. Not sure if i am going to like this. Malty taste lingers for minutes. mmm, odd….

2. steep: malty taste still there, but not as strong as in 1st steep, replaced by nutty, sweet taste. plums, raisins and honey.
3. steep: still going strong, mellow taste stays, woody and chocolate more prominent.

I could easily get more steeps, but decided not to. Still amazed by the complexity of the tea.

extraordinary black tea with a malty, nutty and mellow taste.
