I apologize Derek and Peony Tea S for not getting a review up on this one yet. I have been beyond stressed. I went over my notes and can’t make heads or tails of them. Luckily I have more tea to sample and will have another go at it hopfully this week.
What I do know is this was lightly charcoal flavored in a good way with darker floral notes in the first cup that get brighter and sweeter as it is re-steeped. This makes for an abundant amount of leaf in the press. Do not attempt to use a tea ball with this one. Way too much leaf expansion for brewing in that manner. It is one of only a couple I have steeped in my French press that I did not push the plunger all the way down before pouring so as not to stress the leaf.
Ok, so I had more to work with from my notes than I thought. Not giving this a number until further study but I did love it.
