Okay, trying anyway, just with less water and for 7 minutes. I’ll take it as a good sign that I didn’t want to be done with this tea yet – this is not like me at all.

Scent of the wet leaf:
Very faint maltiness.

Scent of the steeped tea:
Quite faint as well – it smells like the wet leaf, just a tinge malty and like a watered down syrup.

Much like the 3rd infusion. Yes, the flavor is definitely done here. It is just a weak malty black tea.

Overall this was really unique – I love anything from Hawaii so there was no way I’d pass up drinking tea from there. I don’t think it was necessarily a complex tea, but it was a solid one that I will have no problem enjoying the rest of.

And now that I have logged it maybe I’ll be more prepared for next time!

My tea habits:

*I am an unashamed Lipton iced-tea drinker (mass quantities, year round).
*I like hot teas but only in cold weather (and occasionally late summer nights or mornings).
*I love Japanese greens (the more seaweed-y the better) and good strong malty black teas.
*I do NOT love smoke in any form.
*Vanilla, cinnamon, or lemon anything will usually pique my interest.
*I’m working on pu-erh but it’s definitely going to take some time to grow on me.
