80

Dry – hay, fruit, unevenly sized pearls
4g, 170F
Rinse – apricot
10s- apricot, nectarines
20s – still fruity, pearls still intact
30s – incredibly fruity
45s – fruity, I broke up pearls with my fingers because they weren’t unraveling in the relatively cool water.
1, 1.5, 2, 3 ,5 min – continued to be very fruity, but a little one note.

Might try this with a little hotter water to see if the pearls unravel faster while still maintaining flavor.

Flavors: Apricot, Fruity, Stonefruits

Bio

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.

Ratings
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.
