Basic chinese black tea. Better at a lower temperature 190Fish. Slightly malty and fruity, but neither flavor was strong. I mostly felt like I was drinking hot brown water. It did impart color well during the short steeps. Not impressed with it at 205F where it was metallic and bitter.
I asked for a recommendation for a Chinese tea – this was one of three. Either I chose wrong or it was not a good tea to begin with. Leaning toward the 2nd as it pretty inexpensive.
Hope I’ll go through it quickly.

Flavors: Bitter, Fruity, Malt, Metallic

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.

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.
