This tea has a strong note of malt to it. It’s got some bitterness and some astringency. It’s got an unpleasant, negative note that I just fail to identify. It’s not terrible, it’s just not to my liking. It might be better brewed gongfu but I rarely brew gongfu first thing in the morning.
I brewed this tea once in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 3 min.
Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Malt
