I prepared this tea without looking up what the name meant. After reading this information, I can only agree: one really taste the whiskey barrels. Be careful to not make the first steep too strong (the tea has a strong taste), like I did, because there was some harshness to the taste, which disappeared in subsequent steepings.

Like most people here (should really be all ;-) ), I like drinking tea.

Recently I got into loose leaf tea, and am now still “working” my way to the vast quantity of loose leaf tea out there.

On my wish list are currently a variety of unflavored teas, to see which types I like most. If the tea is really astringent, I probably wouldn’t like it.
