From M&K's Tea Company

NGREDIENTS: PREMIUM GRADE DIAN HONG GONG FU CHINESE BLACK TEA.

HARVEST LOCATION: Thyoto, Malawi
TEA GRADE: TSFOP (Tippy Special Flowery Orange Pekoe)

DESCRIPTION:
Buttery, vegetal, sweet…Zomba! This Malawian green tea is ridiculously tasty. Steamed, rolled, and dried, this so-called "Green Velvet" tea produces a beautiful sunflower-oil colored brew, smelling of stone fruit and sweet vegetables. We guarantee this green tea will blow your socks off, and if you aren’t wearing any, you may need to go to the hospital.

CAN I STEEP IT MORE THAN ONCE?:
Definitely. Most green teas (including this one) will change and develop with subsequent steeps. Just leave your tea out while you drink your cup and brew it again! Try leaving your tea in a little bit longer with each subsequent steep.

HOW MUCH CAFFEINE IS IN IT?
This tea has a MEDIUM amount of caffeine. Keep in mind, a longer steep time and a higher temperature will result in a larger caffeine transfer.

Tea 2/11 of the tea I got from M&K’s etsy shop. I got a green tea sampler pack (10 teas) + they threw in one sample which was also a green tea :). Each of the samples I got were enough for 2-3 “servings” of tea. For this sample though I used the entire thing in my small tea pot because I was making 2 cups at once (one for me, one for my husband).

I steeped the tea in 175 degree F water for 2 min. The taste is mineral (I seem to be getting that a lot lately?) with a buttery undertone. I actually tried a little sample of this tea a few months back and I noticed sweet undertones which I’m not getting this time around (prob from using more leaf with more water?). Either way it’s a decent tea.
