Definitely a bit harsh on the first steep, but I maybe oversteeped it. (Note to self: go less than a minute next time.)

It has that asparagus taste but sweetens out over steeps, hitting a good stride on the third steep. Mineral and sweet with grass. Maybe some green beans too.

Light to medium body.

Good amount of l-theanine hit to the back of the head.

This would be better if it had a bit more sweetness to it, imho.

As I sip, I am watching the falling snow and listening to Vespertine. It’s a nice moment and it seems to fit together well.

Flavors: Asparagus, Grass, Green Beans, Mineral, Sweet

Boiling 1 min, 0 sec

I have too many teas and I forget things, so I’m mostly using this site to categorize and note my preferences. But if someone else gets something out of that, that’s great.

I prefer malty, smoky black teas the most for taste, and puer teas for the “kick” they give me. Though I do dabble in other types those are my two mainstays.

90-100 best of the best. these are the teas that I may even hesitate to drink because I don’t want to use them up.

80-89 great and unique in some way, probably a usual in my rotation. I’ll buy it if I’m getting low, unless it’s very expensive.

70-79 very solid but not spectacular. Buy it on sale.

60-69 not necessarily a disappointment. Just okay. Will drink but won’t buy again.

50-59 I’ll be hard pressed to drink these again, but they aren’t gross. They’ll sit in my storage until I’m bored enough to drink again.

<50 I won’t be finishing this off. Getting grosser as the number goes down.
