Formosa, Full leaf black tea.

Gung-fu style or use 2 heaping tsp. per 8 oz cup, heat water to just under boiling (85C/185F), let steep 1-2 minutes, good for seceral infusions. The third infusion is generally the best because the leaves will have completely unfurled and released their flavour.

Oh, I was going to ask you about this. Mom’s planning on dropping by the tea store again this weekend, so if there’s anything that interests you… :) I just wish they sold less than 50g!

Sil

NO NO MOAR TEA! must resist purchasing. I’ve been good so far. only 1 purchase this month for my birthday and that was only 3 teas…. three…soo saaaad.

OMGsrsly

I should resist as well, honestly. But if Mom’s buying… :D

Ooo. Lots of honey. LOTS of honey. Some fruitiness, stone fruits mostly I think. Apricots and golden plums. Very rich, as well. Hints of pie crust. :)

I haven’t steeped this tea quite this way before, and I think I like it more now that I’ve used more leaf.

And yes, ANOTHER assam. I’ll probably pack up a resteep of this and some Tiger Assam to bring with me for this afternoon. Now to go finish getting ready!

Om nom nom nom LOVE Taiwanese blacks! :D

OMGsrsly

This is no where near as good as Butiki’s PTA! It’s not as rich or flavourful, and has more of that cardboard flavour so common in assams. Haha.

Cameron B.

I dunno, PTA has never been my favorite just because I prefer the ones with strong honey notes (like her TWMB).

OMGsrsly

Isn’t the TWMB a leafhopper tea though? This one isn’t. The honey isn’t as strong as that. But it is a lot more present than the last 2 assams I’ve had this morning. :)

Cameron B.

Yeah, I believe it is. I was very pleased to find strong and yummy honey notes in the one TTC tea I’ve tried so far. :D
