This was a really interesting tea, the steeping recommendations were for 2 tsps for 30 seconds in 190 F water. Lacking a working thermometer I had to guestimate on the water temp, but it doesn’t seem to have hurt anything.

The first steep had a sort of clear, slightly sweet taste (I have no idead what to compare it to) on the tip of the tongue which faded into a baked flavour I’m familiar with in my Formosa Oolongs (although not as strong).

The second steep (for 1 min) tasted much more vegetal, almost like a green tea – did someone switch the leaves on me while I wasn’t looking?! It also had that hint of clear sweetness, particularly as it cooled.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
