From the 2016 Dark Matter series.

I’ve been playing video games all weekend since I’ve caught up on homework, so I was trying to avoid “serious” tea sessions. However, after reading a few reviews, I figured it’d be time to try this. Unfortunately, I hadn’t written much while giving it a go. I was most likely preoccupied this afternoon when drinking it.

1st steep: Not much happening. Very light nutty/roasted note. Heat water to 195F instead of 175F (I must’ve thought, “Smells like Genmaicha, so I must brew it at a lower temperature”).

2nd Steep: Really tasting that oolong base. A little bite of sesame seed laced with roasted honey (?).

3rd steep: Really getting into the flavor. Reminds me of a Genmaicha, but with the roasted Oolong notes that really bring out the straw and sesame notes. Very sweet roasted oolong notes.

85% Recommended.

That’s all I had written. So, that’s all I’ll write now.


P.S. I had finally beaten Uncharted 2 yesterday. I must say that this game series is quite enjoyable.

Flavors: Honey, Roasted, Straw

Drinking down a lot of my teas in 2020. I may not observe these sessions as much as I’d like, but I’ll note them, when the mood strikes.
