I always enjoy chatting with Joel about tea and life at his booth at our local tea festival.

Last year, I mentioned that I was making more of an effort to focus on varieties of tea at a time to learn a bit more about them and explore their range. So he said, just pop me a note about which ones you are focusing on currently and I’ll throw something in your next order that I think you might like to try.

And that is how I wound up with this tea. And omgwow! The leaves are long, thin, wiry and speckled with gold strands of leaf. The flavour of the steeped tea is honeyed stone fruit and malt, more like a Darjeeling, in my understanding, than a Ceylon.

Just a beautiful tea, one which I will be adding to my next order.

Thanks, Joel! Sorry that I missed you this year.

I think I screwed up because despite the nice vanilla flavor here, there was a lingering astringency that was hard to get past. I brewed this for 2.5 min in 200F water. Perhaps this Ceylon prefers a low and slow method.

Low and slow, yes.

Finished this one off today. Making slow progress in terms of numbers on my cupboard but doing a great job in getting my weight down, which is vastly more important. If i can keep it up, maybe i’ll let myself place a small order this month :) I’ve enjoyed having this one in my cupboard but it’s not exceptional. A good sort of every day drinking tea imo.

Back from work travel and trying to relax….still a little sick but much less so than before. I suspect that this is going to be alot of a cough hanging around. Ian took the doggo out for an adventure to give me a chance to unwind after my parents met up with us for breakfast. Always nice to see them even if it’s for a short time. Happy to be back with my cupboard :)

Now that i’ve got teas galore, i need to get them in to my cupboard…however i really need to focus on work today so that will have to come later. Started my early morning off with this one. Still not a favourite tea, but it works in a pinch if i keep it to cooler temps. Not a rebuy for me since it’s sort of “whatever” but i still enjoy drinking it.

oh hello cupboard…. nice to see you again. Working from home today so going to try and hit some of the teas that i didn’t take with me last week. Not to mention puerh! I’m starting to get that twitchy feeling about getting new teas (flavoured at least) so i don’t suspect i’ll be able to hold out much longer. This one is starting to grow on me i think, though maybe it’s just hw i brewed it today. Just has a much smoother taste to it today.

this has got an interesting taste to it today…almost like cinnamon but not quite. it’s familiar but i can’t place it. a little astringent today but that’s my fault since i over steeped it haha.

Another of the keemuns i picked up over black friday. It’s nice to have some chinese teas back in my cupboard after pretty much just having flavoured teas and LB for the longest time haha. I let this one get a little cold before paying attention to it, so i really need to have this again. That being said, it’s a nice cup even cold. Smooth, lighter profile…tasty.
