A good friend of mine from ‘back home’ came down to London to stay with me for a few days. He was already a tea-drinker, but hadn’t ever really explored loose-leaf tea. We had some time whilst we were playing games in the evening, so I thought I’d treat him to a nice session of this tea, which felt like a good intro to loose-leaf teas for someone who is an avid black-tea drinker.

As ever, it was lovely; beautiful, chocolate-rich aroma, with such a nice caramel colour, and ideal smooth finish. He really enjoyed it, of course, and is now inspired to branch out and try more loose leaf teas (which, I am glad to report, led to a recent purchase of a whole bunch of teas from a really nice market in Manchester). Good times :D

Flavors: Chocolate, Roast nuts

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 :-)
