Backlog. Sipdown.

I had a uneven session with this tea. I started with half the sample 5g in 100ml gaiwan and 200F water. Dry leaf smells malty and bready.
10s-fruity, little too light in body/taste
I decided to add the rest of my sample. I knew that I had probably overleafed at this point, but I didn’t want 3g floating around. Probably could have tried it westren, but I thought why not?
10s- fruity, now fuller bodied, bit tannic (the overleafing)
10s- dark fruit, strong
I ended up getting another 10 steeps out of it before stopping. It was almost too strong at 10g. 7g was probably the sweet spot.
I wouldn’t get this again. Have to leaf pretty heavy otherwise it’s thin.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Fruity, Malt, Tannic

Preparation
10 g 3 OZ / 100 ML

Bio

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

I like black, oolong, white, and herbals. Green tea is hit or miss.

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.

I try to keep my cupboard to what I have available. Though I haven’t updated in a while.

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.
