Trying this again in expectation of receiving my Yunomi Black Friday order tomorrow. This is a strong tea. I decided to do something I almost never do with tea, add creamer. The malt and the astringency nicely meld into a nicer flavor with the addition of some unflavored coffee creamer. I don’t keep any dairy milk so this is what I have on hand. The tea is in my opinion improved. This is a very small leaf tea. I may have used too much tea at 3 tsp of leaf for 16oz. I should have weighed the leaves at two tsp. In any case I find that Yunomi black teas are good. I have a bunch more coming tomorrow.
I brewed this once in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 3 min.
Flavors: Astringent, Malt
