I tried this tea again yesterday and today. I’m so surprise, I brew exactly at the same parameters than the first session that I had with this tea around 16 days ago. The smokiness is almost gone to be replaced by a kind of candy flavour that ressemble a mix of black liquorice and juniper. It is sweet, and only a bit smokey. All the others flavours honey, bitter, floral… are almost inexistant – just a hint. I have to up the score on this one from 69 to 72. Will see if it remain the same taste…

Smokey, Earthy, a little bit vegetal and smell like melon with some dryness. The smokey taste are not too much overwhelming, as you brew hotter the smokiness increase. I recommend to brew 250 ml of water around 200F (92.5°C) and steep the leaves for 1 min. 40 Sec and at 195F for 1 min. 30 sec. if you don’t want the smokiness. Add 25 sec. for subsequent brew. At time you can taste a little bit of honey with slightly bitterness. There is an aftertaste that I like but I cannot identify. As it get colder you can taste the minerals. Medium finish with a good balance, sweetness increase as you brew additional cup. WATER USED: Nestle Pure Life
