From Nicole’s inventory reduction. What an interesting tea. As others mentioned the leaf is extremely fine cut. I used a Finum basket as I think it would pass through the screen of my press. I only steeped two minutes and it was not the least bit bitter. It is slightly drying. The taste is kind of like an Assam. Kind of. It is a little fruity. I can taste cinnamon and clove like notes – they are very light. I don’t know if this is part of the flavor profile or cross contamination. I will say this was not stored with any cinnamon clove type teas. This is very good!

Having a passion for tea and living in rural America is a tough combination. The nearest tea vendor is 65 miles away. Joining Steepster has completely changed the direction of my tea journey.
