7g, duanni/100mL. Brita filtered tap. dry leaf is dead on for the geosmin/beets note. 10s rinse. Upfront is a slightly bitter woody geosmin. The aftertaste is like if beets had a sour tinge with the sort of floral side that some trad storage teas have. Somewhat durable and good texture. Slightly heady, overall rather chaotic energy, with bursts of heating. Tastes older than it is (as another reviewer on 3B site mentioned, wet leaf is a distinct two color mix), but feels really rough on stomach. Would like to get to my younger LB samples from 3B, but after this session, thinking I might have to wait a bit

Just a chronicle of a stranger’s tea journey. Keeping old notes up to see progression, but no longer really believe in all of them. Trying to learn!!

As of 4/21/21, I will no longer assign numerical ratings to a tea unless it is terrible enough to warrant one. There are a fair amount of solid teas out there, and reading mildly subjective reviews from others > very subjective numerical rating that gets skewed by Steepster’s calculating system anyway.
