I just read the description for this brew, and I can confirm that it is lovely for a cold day. Today has been dark and gloomy, and I’m finishing up all my work before my birthday. I took a break to enjoy this and hopefully warm me up. The pouch emits a delicious char aroma, and it is very intense. I placed a generous amount in my warmed gaiwan and gave it a shake. The aroma deepens to a nice toasted wood. I’m loving these warm tones. I washed the leaves once and prepared for brewing. The steeped leaves keep the consistent char, embers, and resinous scents. The brew is delightful! The drink carries a nice pleasing roasted flavor. This tone is not over powering, and it soothes the body. The sips contain a light bite present in the aftertaste that keep the mouth alert and the taste buds intrigued. I enjoyed each steep of this. I noticed a slight sweet aftertaste and a well mixture of burnt sugar, roast, and smooth caramel tones. I was able to pull about six steeping sessions from my gaiwan. I sat by the window watching the snow fall on the pond as I sipped away at this roasty treat. This brew made for a very nice moment of peace and quiet. The drink has a nice head feeling and good body to it. The tea carries no overly complex tones, but it’s perfectly okay and makes up for it with a pleasant, fragrant experience. This is perfect for a cold day. I’m glad I had this moment, and I enjoyed this offering very much!

Bio

Young and experienced Tea consumer. I’m continuously learning and developing knowledge about tea. If I have learned anything at all from the world of tea it is that I do not know anything about the world of tea. I enjoy good tea, and I try to acquire the best of the best. I usually brew gongfu but I’ve been known from time to time to resort back to western brewing.

I have an Instagram (haveteawilltravel), and I am proud of my photographs. I use my pictures in my reviews,and I hope that they aid in portraying the beauty of tea and teaware.

Tea Rating System:
I rate my teas based on the category they fall into (Puer, Red, Oolong, Darjeeing, Flushes, Yancha… etc.)
This means that I will rate a Oolong based on how it stands up as a quality Oolong. I try not to compare teas, rather I work to evaluate them on their craftsmanship, harvest, processing, and qi.

I am most strict with Shou and Sheng Puerh, only because of the vast expanse of various experiences, such as; region, vintage, production, processing, etc.
