I have received a lots of tea today. As you can see in my cupboard. Dammann from my Swiss friend (as birthday gift). And for postage all others. From IRC #tea guy. Thanks Donatzsky!

And this is one from him.

Rinse smelled after leather. I don’t recall if I noticed it earlier in tea.
In taste of course weak (was 10 seconds long)

1st steep
15 seconds. Camphor notes. And floral. Thick. In taste not so intense, but still very nice. Golden liquor.
2nd steep
15 seconds too. Strong aromas of above. Still very thick.
3rd
15 seconds. More floral notes. Less thick I think.
4th
20 seconds. Maybe bit of corniferous forest? Floral taste weaker. Wet forest floor.
5th
20 seconds again. Camphor maybe waking up a bit. Sweeter aftertaste.
6th
30 seconds. I think it is not so full of flavours anymore. Still sweet aftertaste. As I was writing with sender, he came up with licorice. I agree, but it is not so astrigent.
7th
looong – one minute.
Still so great. I was afraid it will be too much.
It is not. Now it is great in terms of flavours. Great combination of both. Still same, but still tasty.

8th
Last one. Again one minute long. My thermos is empty. So it means one full liter of it. Whoa. And not a single one steep was boring.
From leather notes through floral and needles to licorice. I guess that means full of flavour. I liked this session. And I hope you liked this tasting note. It is over now.

Not today, 24th. She wasn´t sure if it can make it before it, so she ordered it before. Way too early!
