Having a cup of this one again – after my last tasting I was pretty excited to see if I got the same flavors out of it.

To my surprise… I’m getting really different vibes from it now. The dry leaves are hitting me with more of a squash aroma than a tomato one. Taste is your standard Ceylon base tea, with squash or pumpkin notes and a hint of chocolate. Overall character is bright, on the lighter end of Ceylon blacks. Still good.

Boiling 3 min, 45 sec

I work as a web coder guy. I eat primal/paleo; I love math, science, gaming, and of course tea. I’ve been drinking tea since I was 3! I started with looseleaf in 2004 and have had lots of fun trying all sorts of new things since then.

I mostly drink black tea, and that usually with milk and sugar. I also enjoy, in more or less descending order:

cooked puers
rooibos, lighter greens, oolongs
whites, raw puers
some other herbals
darker greens
