I didn’t follow the directions for steeping. I oversteep tea so often and I only had one sample. So, it’s quite possible that I’m tasting something very different from the others.

I couldn’t smell this tea when dry. I could only smell my teacup. 160/3 min. Now, I can smell it and it smells slightly vegetal. It’s got a lot of the black tea scent to it, the taste as well. It tastes like a golden yunnan and even looks like one with the golden brown color. I’m tasting something reminiscent of honey or cane sugar. It’s a strange kind of sweetness that is not very pronounced. There is no astringency to this tea at all, nor is it bitter. It’s just a pleasant late afternoon tea.

I’m a middle school teacher of French, Spanish, ESL and reading intervention. I’m also a mom to two young children.

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
