I used a generous amount of leaf in my Gaiwan. One thing I try to do when tasting is to always close my eyes. I believe somehow this helps me to better evaluate the flavor. With the amount that I used, which is probably twice the amount I used before, the liquor is strong and very warming. I steeped this twice and I am loving it. I will taste this again later because even closing my eyes cannot rid my mouth of the flavor of the “everything” bagel that I had. One thing that I can be certain of is the energy that this tea posesses. In all honesty I cannot handle another cup….

I am an avid surfer, gardener, golfer and freespirit. I have been a tea drinker forever. Tea has provided me with contentment. I love White, Oolong, Green, Black and Pu’er. I do not care for flavored tea and nor will I comment on it.
