I had this tea a few days ago and as I was drinking it, I was wondering what on earth made me choose a sample of this tea?

I think the first infusion was the best. It was light and just a bit fruity but leaves had barely opened up. Second infusion was strong, more fruit but bitter. Infusion 3 and on, it got so bitter , it puckered my lips. Bitter, bitter, bitter. So what did make me choose this tea? I had to go on the YS website to read about the tea. Surely there must have been something about it that made me want to try a sample. The description says it has an intense cha qi and is somewhat bitter and astringent. I tried lowering the temperature to cut down on the bitterness so I raised the temperature. That seemed to help a little bit but this tea was just too bitter to drink. Crikey, I still can’t figure out why I bought it.

Green teas are my favourite teas but I also enjoy: white, some herbal,rooibos, raw pu’erh, light oolongs, a little bit of black , and a little bit of ripe pu’erh. I have moved away from artificial flavourings and there’s hardly anything left in my cabinet with artificial flavouring or colours. It is mostly straight teas or tea blends.
