Beautiful dark green, small leaves. First steep 1 minute. Soup is light greenish yellow. At first I found it rather savory, like vegetables coated in sesame seed oil; brothy and nutty. Interesting.
The aftertaste kind of crept up on me; a delicate sweetness! What a nice surprise!
2nd steep 1 min 20 sec. A bit uninteresting, at least at first. More nutty than the previous brew. The sweetness isn’t as present. I probably just needed to steep it longer.
3rd steep 2 min. It’s ok.
Overall, I like it for general drinking.

I love tea. I first tasted loose leaf when my grandpa brought some back from Russia and I remember just savoring it. Not sure what kind it was; all I remember is that it was loose leaf and it was good. =)

I really enjoy oolong, jasmine tea, and white tea. I especially love those black teas with chocolate notes! Also, chai is a constant favorite. I enjoy green tea, but need to be in the mood for it to actually want it.

As far as tisanes go, I enjoy chamomile and occasionally a mint. I am interested to try rooibus and honey bush. I do prefer teas without artificial flavoring but I’m willing to try most things.

I know next to nothing about puerh, but I like what I have tried so far.

I am consistently amazed at the flavors contained in one leaf. I am on a quest to discover all of them! Slowly, though. Good tea is expensive. :P

Other things I enjoy: Books. My family. Truth. Campfires. Animal Rescue. Gardening. Sushi. Mountain biking. Documentaries. Trees. Music. Culture. Sour cream raisin pie. Not necessarily in that order. :P
