Tea Swap Sample

I was drinking this a few days ago prior to a weekend-long camping trip. I wanted to drink something “easy on the mind” to help me go to bed, so that I’d be able to wake up the following morning with ease, rather than struggling to do so on the account of having a puerh or something else that produces high energy.

Anyway, I had a few steeps that evening, taking a couple of notes as I sat and drank. I didn’t complete the whole session in one sitting, but I finished the remainder of the tea the following morning before packing….

Notes: Crisp, light, floral, and soft. There was a touch of astringency that happened briefly due to user error by increasing the temperature too much. However, once the temperature was adjusted back to the original (175 F), everything seemed to go back to normal. The last steep went for 4 minutes, but the notes were depleted at this point. I managed to go 8 steeps with this tea; which was overall quite satisfying.

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.
