Steeped 3.9 grams in 6oz for 3:30. This is a solid cup, if a little mellow and quiet. There’s a gentle malt character and bit of fruit, but it’s somewhat generic in terms of overall expression. Otherwise, it’s really fresh, bright, and crisp, just not as complex as I had hoped. For the price, it’s a solid deal on an Organic Nilgiri. I was pleasantly surprised to find it held up for a second steep at 4:30.

Exploring the world of fine Chinese and Japanese teas, my favorites include: sheng pu’er, moderately roasted oolongs, gyokuro, shincha, and high quality, artisanal whites and greens. I don’t subscribe to any particular style of brewing, but incorporate elements from traditional techniques to brew the best tea possible. I also seek to share the joy that tea brings me with others, but am really rather introverted.
