Another from the TTB – I haven’t ever bought any tea from MP, but figured I’d try their tea after it came my way in the TTB. I had enough of this for one normal-sized session and one smaller session. My first session was weird – I think my tastebuds were a bit off, as it tasted just weirdly bitter. Second session was a little bit nicer thankfully, though I did find this tea wanting to get bitter on me.

In my second session, when I managed to taste the tea properly, I got notes of hay mostly, with a bit of a funky apricot note as well. That apricot note was a bit weird, tasting almost plasticy or artificial for some reason. As I mentioned earlier, I found I had to keep steep times pretty low or this tea would get unpleasantly bitter on me. Even with steep times under 10s for the majority of the session, I got only about 9 steeps from this tea. This one wasn’t particularly to my taste, even when I did taste it properly and manage the steep times a little more closely.

Flavors: Apricot, Bitter, Hay

A bit about myself: 22 years old, college grad (Double major in Anthropology and History). I plan to make a career of archaeology and hopefully travel (much of) the world in my days.

I enjoy many things aside from tea, including gaming, mixing cocktails, reading, watching anime, and painting miniatures.

My favorite type of tea is sheng puerh. Particularly younger stuff, if only because I haven’t gotten the chance to taste much of anything aged. I also really like oolong (Taiwanese, Wuyi, Dancong, etc.) and Japanese Green Teas. I do also enjoy most other kinds of tea, but they aren’t what I normally buy. I’m not a huge fan of shou puerh, black tea, or flavored blends, with few exceptions.

I really like interacting with the tea community, so if you ever want to talk or swap teas or anything, feel free to shoot me a message or something. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Probably ;)
