I’m new to tea and this tea started the new obsession. I first enjoyed this in NYC when I visited Tea Drunk and did a tasting. It has an earthy, woodsy taste to start with nutmeg and roasted nuts behind it. There’s a very slight sweetness to it that reminds me of vanilla. I got about five steepings out of it. While I brewed this at 195, a little lower would probably be fine as the first steeping tasted a little bitter to me, but the second steeping tasted just as it had when it was served to me. Highly recommended. Tea Drunk’s price point is a bit high ($24/25g) so I may try this type from other vendors and see if it’s just NYC pricing or if that’s to be expected.
