5.8g, 100mL duanni. Found a piece of what appeared to be charcoal today. Change of pace from the amount of tea seeds in my Qizhong cake, I guess. No I’m not salty. But I wouldn’t repurchase Qizhong either.

Anyway, this was nicely woody, with some hint of an almost chocolate-like note in the taste on top of the usual trad sheng taste. More exciting than usual. Some bright sweetness in aftertaste. Not mushroomy like the last few times? Died off quickly, which this duanni seems to do.

I encountered my first (I hope) foreign object in a black tea recently. I was scooping the spent leaves into the garbage and noticed a hard, round object the size of a cranberry, but couldn’t get a look at it without going through several days’ worth of moldy tea leaves. I hope this was a tea seed and not something worse!

I find goodies all the time too. Chicken feather was one of those odd things.

I guess that’s why people are supposed to rinse their teas. :)

Just a chronicle of a stranger’s tea journey. Trying to learn!!

As of 4/21/21, I will no longer assign numerical ratings to a tea unless it is terrible enough to warrant one. There are a fair amount of solid teas out there, and reading mildly subjective reviews from others > very subjective numerical rating that gets skewed by Steepster’s calculating system anyway.
