Wow this is strong tea. You’d almost think I’ve been drinking oolongs all day! ;)

As others have mentioned, it’s a tiny, tiny leaf. Almost worse than rooibos for getting through filters. The first time I brewed it, I went for 3-4 minutes, and it darn near killed me. This time, I went for about a minute and it was just slightly under-brewed. It smells wonderful. I’m not as fond of the taste as other teas, but it’s not bad at all.

I’d like to try this iced. I think this would make an awesome iced tea.

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
