86? 96!
I have this tea from… ehem… very long time, order was placed in May 2021. I tried it once, closed the bag with strong clipper and opened just once again when sending a sample to derk.

I have decided to fullfill ashmanra’s sipdown promptA tea for joyful solitude and meditation because this tea seems best to me for that prompt.

I decided to gongfu it this time, using 8 grams (a little overleafed maybe?) for my 125 ml gaiwan, which was full with leaf. When I infused the leaf for first time, the volume of leaf is half; however still very full gaiwan. So, I guess I never used whole volume of my gaiwan in this session.

I did in total 8 steeps, from 10 seconds long to 40 seconds, with very small increments and only the last one was the watery one.

In between I got very meadow like tea, with hints of herbals (thyme comes to mind), honey notes, a little astringency peeks out as well. The liquor is very viscous, as derk noticed, not much hay, but straw this time.

As of fruity notes, I can point out some stonefruits, however they aren’t much present. There is also yellow melon note a little bit.

I was drinking this tea while studying again, so not so much joyful, but for sure solitude. For those who do meditations, I believe this one could work for them as well. It has got some relaxing properties I assume.

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Photographer now and then. Postcrossing and geocaching member. Very curious person. Logistics student (should finish in June 2021).

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
