I brewed this tea with cooler water than stated at 160F. 150ml gaiwan, 5g ish.
Dry leaf smells sweet and roasted, a little nutty.
Wet leaf smell reminds me of toasted rice.
10s first steep tastes of toasted rice and mango. This is repeated with the only other two steeps I did. I did not continue with this tea.
Very different tasting tea. Taste is very distinct, I don’t know if I like it. Pretty sure it’s not something I’ll order again.

Flavors: Mango, Toasted Rice

I started my tea journey with Stash/Celestial Seasonings tea bags years ago. All loose leaf, unless I’m sick or traveling.

I like black, oolong, white, herbals, and raw/ripe pu’erh. I don’t drink green tea often.

I play video games, read, and do pottery. My current favorite tea mug is one I threw and glazed.

I generally review teas twice – initial and final steeps.

My cupboard is mostly up to date.

85-100 are teas that I loved and want to keep in stock.
71-84 are teas that are good. I may or may not get them again. Source for daily drinkers/work teas.
60-70 are teas that I didn’t like. I’ll finish what I bought.
Anything less than 60…nope.
