Backlog: bought this tea at Midwest Tea Fest. I really enjoyed talking with Beautiful Taiwan Tea and the presentation he did.
212F, 100ml dry leaf smells – yeasty, malty, fruity
20s- raisin and prunes, 30s,40s- fruity, prune.

Getting some hints of astringency as I push out the time up near 1min30s. Wonder if I pushed it out too fast? I enjoyed drinking this tea, though my notes are sparse.

Flavors: Astringent, Dried Fruit, Fruity, Malt, Raisins, Yeast

Bio

I started my tea journey with Stash/Celestial Seasonings tea bags years ago. All loose leaf, unless I’m sick or traveling.

I like black, oolong, white, herbals, and raw/ripe pu’erh. I don’t drink green tea often.

I play video games, read, and do pottery. My current favorite tea mug is one I threw and glazed.

I generally review teas twice – initial and final steeps.

My cupboard is mostly up to date.

Ratings
85-100 are teas that I loved and want to keep in stock.
71-84 are teas that are good. I may or may not get them again. Source for daily drinkers/work teas.
60-70 are teas that I didn’t like. I’ll finish what I bought.
Anything less than 60…nope.
