From Tearunners

This earthy and full flavored black tea comes from Anhui, China. Its name translates to “hairy mountain tea” because of the fuzzy down on its leaves, but you’ll fall in love with its woodsy and vibrant character with sweet notes of cane sugar.

A perfect tea for a wet and rainy day.

Grandpa Brew Sipdown (1153)!

Thank you VariaTEA for the share! I enjoyed this one a lot when I had it earlier in the week, but it wasn’t the type of mind blowing black tea that I think will stick in my memory among all the others I’ve tried and I don’t feel like I need more of it. I thought it had sturdy body to support a malty and almost powdery feeling cocoa note, with hints of fresh out of the oven brew and a little bit of redfruit undertone. Moderate astringency, which added character to the tea and kept the most sweet leaning notes from feeling flat. I think, brewed Western style, it might be a bit too mild and Gongfu I imagine it wouldn’t resteep well after a steep or two so this might have been the brewing sweet spot. At least, that’s my impression.

Sipdown. Seems like most of the tearunner teas we picked to try and sort of middle of the road for me. i don’t dislike them, they’re tasty in the moment but i’m not going to miss not having them in my cupboard.

Steepster is working! Yay! Hopefully it lasts!

During the Steepster freeze I drank a lot of teas and got a wonderful package from my Dad which had my new teas from Tea Please and my order (with Sil and Roswell Strange) from Tea Runners. Need to add them into my steepster cupboard.

Tonight I divided up the teas that needed dividing so I could seal up the package for Roswell Strange. This was one of the teas that needed dividing as I’m sharing it with Sil and it also happened to be the tea that I finished dividing when the kettle was ready. So I brewed it.

I was busy while drinking it but it was good. Nothing special but good. Sweet is really the descriptor that comes to mind. It’s a sweet black tea. I’ll enjoy drinking it again but I may not remember it by the time I get to it again if I’m being honest.

Sil

here’s hoping i enjoy it. Ian MIGHT be able to pick up tea this weekend as he’s doing some weird ass 300KM bike race out there…but i’ll keep you posted

VariaTEA

Just lemme know. Until it’s picked up, I shall continue to add to it.

Sil

lol fair warning i have tea for you too

VariaTEA

Don’t worry. So far I’ve only added tea as I’ve made myself a cup and since I’ve been drowning in work, I’ve barely had time to have tea myself so you maybe get any extra bag a day…if that.

Sil

haha no worries. :)

after having returned from groceries this afternoon, i made myself a mug of this tea. the first taste and lingering taste is sweet cane sugar. the aroma is earthy when still unwatered and malty post brew. i forgot to reset my kettle from 100 to 93 C for this one. i’ll try it again at the right temperature. but right now, it isn’t doing much for me.
