This looks like coffee.

But does NOT taste good with eggnog.

I did 2 short rinses, and now I’m doing few-second steeps. So far they are all REALLY strong. It’s like I’m digging through a decomposting tree but it’s hot. Mulch, earth, and autumn leaf pile are good descriptions.

So far it’s tasting too much like tree and bitter for me. I’ll come back in a few steeps.

4 (shorter): Fishy. Hmm.

5: More earthy and mulch like. Wet forest is here too.

6: A little sweeter? Interesting. Still earthy and wet foresty though.

7: I think this is it. I steeped a couple minutes this time, and it’s significantly lighter in colour and flavour.

OMG, I could not imagine steeping this for one to two minutes straight up!

LOL! I gave my son a big bag of this for Christmas and he was so happy! It is his favorite. To each his own is grandly apparent in tea tastes! :)

It’s not bad, it’s just REALLY STRONG (and not so great with eggnog!). :) I have a forest floor puerh I love, but it’s a lot lighter.

I mostly drink black tea, with some floral oolongs or puerhs thrown in for variety.

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
