From Meowster! Thanks so much – started these steeps Sunday, finished yesterday. Steepster is finally allowing me to post about this today. I haven’t tried nearly as many W2T as I would like to try. Meowster kindly weighed the sample – 4.5 grams. The flavor is hard to pick apart. Maybe I’m losing my taster for pu-erh like I am for oolong. The four mugs were very consistent, though the first steep was distinctly like coffee somehow. This one would be excellent to use as a coffee inspired flavored blend anyway. Otherwise, the flavor was always smooth, sweet and very inoffensive with a scarlet tint to the brew. This was great, but after the wonder that was 2016 Poundcake and this being W2T, I thought it would be even more special than it was. It looks like the handful of steepster notes agree – nothing too special about this one but ALWAYS appreciative of trying any tea!
