This is an interesting tea. The dry leaf smells mildly of peppermint. There was a fair amount of fermentation flavor to this tea. There was a sweet note and little bitterness to it. Then there was the blend. The cloves tasted strongest, followed by the peppermint, I couldn’t taste the licorice root at all. This was an interesting tea to try. When I bought it I don’t think I realized it was a blend. It just smelled interesting. I would probably not buy it again if she still has it.

I steeped this tea eight times in a 150ml gaiwan with 10.1g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, and 30 sec.

Boiling 10 g 5 OZ / 150 ML

I am Allan. I live and work in Long Island, New York. I have been amassing a tea collection for nearly two years and have spent way too much money. I now try to buy mostly Puerh as I like it most and it lasts nearly forever. Black tea has a habit of going bad. If anyone is interested in tea swaps I am open to ideas and have quite a cupboard.
