drank Kali Cha by The Tao of Tea
2157 tasting notes
I put this in my hubby’s stocking since he has fairly recently discovered oolong and this one purports to be strong and dark, his favorite configuration.

Therefore, I deliberately oversteeped the first pot to accommodate his palate. I got “bitter with a little bit of floral.” Some reviews mention orchids, and I get that. Hubby just got orchids.

Second steep (same leaves) was equally dark and much smoother, not so flowery. More drinkable by my standards.

Looking forward to another stab at this, based on my own preferences. Reviews also mention cocoa and I am all about that!

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
