3 Tasting Notes

90

To start: I screwed up when brewing this tea the first time; you’re supposed to take the rind off. If you have trouble doing that, soaking it in hot water for a little bit makes it peel (which I found out on accident, as I said).
Anyway, a very fruity tea. If you like Upton Tea’s Heavy Baked Ti Guan Yin, this is very similar but definitely does not contain the iron-y taste the Ti Guan Yin does; this tea is magnitudes more mild, but I feel like it does not pair with a lemon as well as Ti Guan Yin does.

Very smooth and calming. Steeps well in a Yixing teapot for ~30 seconds for the first 4 or so steeps.
