I wrapped up Week 1 of Sample Frenzy with Tea Bank Estate FBOPF Ex. Spl. This cups a very nice Ceylon black: some carmel-like sweetness, a hint of something spicy, and that uniquely-Ceylonese long taste on the finish. I steeped this for four minutes, 15 seconds; if I try some more of this tea, I think I’ll give it the full five minute steep to see if the carmel and/or spice becomes more noticeable. All in all, I’d recommend this tea to anyone who likes black teas.

Boiling 4 min, 15 sec

I’m a single dude approaching the age when I can no longer refer to myself as a “dude” without general snickering commencing. I am a computational research specialist/data scientist/system administrator currently working at a large public university in Texas where I am also working on a Ph. D. I’m in denial that my puppy is 10 years old and getting arthritic. I really like to grow things but I love to travel.
