I wish I had bought a second tin!
Okay, so I’m at work (10pm to 7am) and I forgot my infusers… No bags also…
So, just floated this bad boy and spooned it out. I really don’t mind doing it this way often (I feel it gives the leaves a chance to really unfurl and fully infuse) and they usually settle to the bottom anyway.
Boiling water in my hot pot in the break room.
About 1 to 1.5 tsp on a 8 oz cup.
Sit for 3 min. First sip was WOWZA! Honey notes, malty, bread, yeasty note. (I work in an ER, saying yeasty didn’t seem quite fitting, but co-workers got a good laugh.) I was apprehensive about liking yunnan. This is my first. Let’s just say I’m hooked!
After about 10 minutes now, there’s a nice bold earthy flavor, still some honey. Not as much honey undertones as golden monkey has.
Now its probably been 2 hours, and its still great cold. Its a bit bitter, but not so much that its not like a good cup of black coffee.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Earth, Honey, Hops, Yeasty
