Edit: revisiting this with more leaf and a briefer steep, I get more from it. I also suspect it will get better as it ages, so I will revise as that happens. At 5g/100ml this is earthier, saltier. I don’t have clay teaware but I suspect this tea would be great for clay.

Pale but strong, with an apple hint. Has a good syrupy feel in the mouth. The taste is not my preference but it’s definitely not bad – lots there for someone.

Flavors: Apple, Earth, Mineral, Seaweed, Wood

I gave up alcohol in 2013. When my taste buds came back I discovered tea.

75+ I’ll seek this out again
50+ I enjoyed this
25+ Not for me but may be for some. I might bear it on some days.
0+ Nope.

I brew gongfu style – lotsa tea, brief brew, then into a sharing cup. It really changed tea for me after not quite “getting it” from western style brewing.
