I need to play around more with steep times and amount of water with this one. I’m still relatively new to raw pu-erh and not completely sure what works for me and what doesn’t. This one wasn’t overly bitter to me as long as I kept the steeps fairly short. I think I probably should have used less water, though, as the flavor was a little on the weaker side (one 6g half a biscuit with about 150ml water). I was trying not to overdo it because I’ve had some problems lately with raws causing some stomach upset about midway through the session and I already had a headache when I started this one. I was probably a bit over-cautious. Still, I enjoyed the fruity flavors in this even if it wasn’t particularly strong and didn’t have any of the stomach upset I’d been worried about. As a bonus, this tea sent me into a “tea coma” and I was able to sleep off the headache. I’m excited to experiment with steeping parameters and hopefully figure out the best way to steep Biscuits. It’ll be great to have more raw options my stomach doesn’t hate.

I may have a mild to moderate tea addiction. Black, white, green, pu-erh, it doesn’t matter. I’m a little on the fence about oolongs but I’m starting to think I’m just particular about how they’re brewed. I haven’t tried any yellows yet but they’re on my wishlist so I can have a complete rainbow of tea. My tea problem is bad enough that I don’t necessarily even need tea in my tea, most herbals are welcome in my house too.

Favorites: jasmine, moonlight white, shou mei, chenpi/tangerine peel, violet, rose, Mengku sheng (especially autumn), anji bai cha, taiping houkui, blooming tea balls, tulsi/holy basil, chamomile

Dislikes: red rooibos, eucalyptus, allspice, flavorings of unknown origin, pumpkin, apple, banana, annoying flower petals that don’t add any flavor but are thrown in to look pretty (they tend to float and get in my way if I brew tea grandpa style)
