From Dark Matter. The first time I tried this tea I didn’t use nearly enough leaf, and was left with just 2 grams for a second round. Poor leaf management on my part.

So I tried western style steeping in about 4 oz of boiling water for 5 minutes and had a very nice cup of tea. Smooooth, mellow and just malty enough. It’s on the sweeter end of the spectrum, but I don’t notice raisin like others have. Very comforting cup on a cloudy morning.

My first tea love was the oolong served at Chinese restaurants when I was growing up in Houston. In 2015 I started exploring tea for real and it has become an obsession.

Favorites: Chinese green tea, most oolongs except dark roasted tieguanyin, and sheng. On a quest to find my favorite black tea.

Also, I am known to bumble into landmines by answering rhetorical questions. :)
