Smooth with kick! Round mouthfeel, a soft texture and wonderful fullness to the body. Woody orange spice flavor.
I’ve been using 2 tsp of leaf, 5-6 oz of 185°F water, for several 1 min steeps. As I commonly do with black teas, I shorten my steep time (from the 2 min spec’d). This tea has range – If you prefer a stronger cup this tea can certainly give you that punch in the face; or if you prefer gentler, a shortened steep yields a more relaxed yet still full flavored cup.
In addition to What-Cha, I appreciate my /r/tea pal lawraa for the opportunity to try this tea. She originally received it as a mystery tea, and enjoyed it so much that she asked Alistair to offer it for sale!
