Rating boost on this tea. I’m coming to appreciate its straight-forward, no frills tea flavor. Not a lot of complexity or subtlety; you don’t feel bad about slamming through a couple of cups in the morning as your wakeup cup(s)…you know that time, where subtlety and “fine flavor structures” are lost on the gunk in your mouth (or the mint toothpaste if you’ve gotten that far). 2nd steeps are good as the first.

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

I remember when I discovered that there was more to tea than hot or iced. I was given a loose tea sampler (M.T.W.) and a stainless steel tea ball as a Christmas gift many years ago, by whom I cannot remember. That was the start of what will be a life-long love of fine tea. I discovered Steepster from a blog entry on the Mark. T. Wendell website…and have, from Steepster, discovered even more fine teas and vendors. Bravo!
