Ahhhhhhh, good memories. Earlier in the week, before this cold set in, I was really craving a rich, warming tea to stave off this miserable weather (though probably mild by some American standards, I’m suffering in this ~5 degrees, rainy weather. Waiting for the bus at 7:15 in the morning has never been so rubbish :P). I picked this one out on a bit of a whim – I had a strong recollection of how roasty it was, but also that I didn’t “get it” so much last time.

How things have changed…

This tea is just a delight. It’s warming, it’s creamy, it’s sweet, and it’s delicious. Like, seriously good. It also just seemed to go on forever. I started drinking it in one of the mornings before my commute and enjoyed three decent 120 ml steeps. I then had some after dinner (four or five steeps). I then enjoyed another two or three steeps the following morning.

I didn’t take notes or anything (as it was either too early or too late by the time I was drinking it to do anything that complicated :P), but it stuck with me as such a perfect tea for this weather. I’m gonna be a little bit lost when this one runs out…

Still one of my favorites, running low, wonder where we will find more.

Indeed – I’d love it if I found somewhere else to get more! :D

Medical Student and casual tea-drinker.

I’ve been drinking tea for many years, but I’m quite new to fine, Chinese teas – I took to Steepster to learn, take recommendations and share my experiences :-)

I’m particularly keen to try lots of new teas, especially Pu Erhs and Oolongs!

I’m also happy to swap, particularly within the UK! If you see anything in my cupboard that you wanna try, please don’t be afraid to ask! Most of them I have at least 25 g of, so a 5 g sample or so will be no trouble :-)
