I used 7oz of filtered water (tap, run through a Brita filter), boiled, then cooled to 190 degrees, with an infusion time of 1.5 minutes. I used one teaspoon of leaf.

The dry leaves have a rich and satisfying aroma. They have a nice balance of golden, brown, and green colors. Once brewed the leaves are small, supple, and continue to have a wonderful aroma. The resulting brew is golden, and has a wonderful taste. I can get a couple of steeps out of them, with increasing times for subsequent steeps.

This is my favorite blend at this point in time. The taste is incredible, the aroma is unique, and I have always enjoyed each steep. I don’t drink it often, but I keep looking forward to the next time I can brew a cup or three.

Born. Lived. Died. Not necessarily in that order.

I’m in my late 20’s, married with children, and love tea. I work as a purchasing agent, enjoy programming, reading, and riding a unicycle.
