This tea is pretty good. It is a well rounded mix of bitterness, astringency, sweetness and has an umami taste to it. This is not as good as the gyokuro by Tablinshop but was good. Not sure if I would buy this again. So far all of Tablinshop’s teas have seemed to be high quality tea.

I brewed this three times in a 200ml Kyusu with 7.7g leaf and 175 degree water. I steeped it for 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min.

Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Sweet, Umami

175 °F / 79 °C 1 min, 0 sec 7 g 7 OZ / 200 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.
