drank Tan Yang Te Ji by TeaSpring
14 tasting notes

A sophisticated, complex and subtle black tea. A bit Keemun-ish but less bold. Smooth, not powerfully malty like Assam or Yunnan. I had to brew it a full 5 minutes Western-style, 4-4.5 was not strong enough with my usual 1 stp per 6 oz water leaf ratio.

Notes of sweet shellfish-crab, fruit-plum, autumn leave scent.

It is interesting, not my usual style but I would give it 80/100

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

Started drinking tea regularly in 2003 when I read that tea helped broken bones heal faster, because I had one.

Discovered high quality loose-leaf a year later and was soon hooked on Indian, Chinese, and Japanese tea.

Also amassed a small but happy collection of Japanese Teaware.
