2.5tsp, 200F, westren.
Dry smell – chocolate, coconut, nutty.
4 min tongue coating, astringent. At 5min it has more flavor. I don’t think this tea is really my thing. I seem to have problems with ceylon based teas. I just don’t like the taste.
I may need to try this again. Add milk?

Probably. Lauren usually recommends it.

Yeah, I definitely think Ceylon is helped a lot with a splash of milk.

After trying it, I agree with you both. Astringent edge is gone. I can taste the flavors. Thanks! :)

Bio

I started my tea journey with Stash/Celestial Seasonings tea bags years ago. All loose leaf, unless I’m sick or traveling.

I like black, oolong, white, herbals, and raw/ripe pu’erh. I don’t drink green tea often.

I play video games, read, and do pottery. My current favorite tea mug is one I threw and glazed.

I generally review teas twice – initial and final steeps.

My cupboard is mostly up to date.

Ratings
85-100 are teas that I loved and want to keep in stock.
71-84 are teas that are good. I may or may not get them again. Source for daily drinkers/work teas.
60-70 are teas that I didn’t like. I’ll finish what I bought.
Anything less than 60…nope.
