I took a sample of this out of the GCTTB5 box 2 because I knew that I wanted to try it but didn’t want to hold the box up, so thanks for the sample Bitterleaf!

I combined the first 3 steeps gongfu style because I didn’t have time for a full gongfu session. I found the first 3 steeps sweet with honey and hay notes. I also found some peppery cinnamon notes hidden in there.

I also combined the next three steeps and found it to be sweeter with less peppery notes. Delicious. It would be interesting to see how it changes with age as the description states, but I only took enough for 1 sample.

I am a nurse. I have numerous hobbies: reading, crocheting, crafting, card making, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, and of course drinking TEA!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I went into a DavidsTea for the first time and have been hooked ever since! My favourite is probably white tea, but I also love black and oolong. I also like a nice relaxing rooibos or herbal in the evening. On Sundays, I like to treat myself and make a tea latte.

My favourite flavours are nutty, vanilla, chocolate, jasmine, tropical, fruity, earl grey.
My dislikes are lavender, rose, hibiscus, banana, and straight green or overly vegetal teas.

I am admittedly fairly generous in my rating scale. Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
