Another tea from Leafhopper, thank you a lot. Also, it is actually 2022 “vintage” and called Summer Wonder, but I haven’t found that on Lochan Tea website at all, so I am adding a note here. Maybe it is wrongly labeled or something.

3 grams / 300 ml; western. 3 minutes steep.

I was craving a plain black tea today morning, but with some twist — being light, but flavourful and well that was delivered.

It isn’t extremely flavourful, but it is complex indeed. I do not get any beans like derk did, but there are lovely flavours for Indian black, listed below (in no order again): autumn leaf pile, creamy, floral, a little bit of grassy/hay like, meadows, muscatel and little bit of spices, honey as well.

That said, considering my senses weren’t ready for that, I think it is a nice list of flavours; and I wasn’t actually paying too much attention to my cup today morning.

Remaining 7 grams? well I am not sure. Gongfu — that will be one session worth. Maybe I will split it up and do one weaker eastern steeping and one another western steeping session. Because this tea deserves more than one steep.

195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 3 g 10 OZ / 300 ML

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Photographer now and then. Postcrossing and geocaching member. Very curious person. Logistics student (should finish in June 2021).

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
