I’ll probably be updating this note as I drink the tea. Sample generously provided by Dexter. :) Thank you!
I flash-rinsed twice, and because it was loose pieces it opened up pretty fast. The first steep was still fairly pale orange, and the second steep now is quite dark. It has a bit of musty flavour still that I’m not digging, but it’s reduced even with the second steep so I have high hopes.
It’s fairly sweet (yay!) and kind of woody-fruity. More wood, though. :)
I’ve steeped 7 times now and it’s starting to slow down. The musty flavours are mostly gone, and now it’s a smooth and slightly sweet brew. I’ve enjoyed this very much, although I don’t think I’d buy it for myself.
Thanks so much for sharing!
