Finally, I am back on Steepster! I had a week there where work was really hectic, and then I got sick. I couldn’t taste anything! I wound up drinking my “swill” tea which is a tin of mixed loose black tea comprised of all of the black teas I’ve tried and didn’t like.
Anyhow, my best friend sent me a giant tin of this tea for my birthday (which is today, happy birthday, me!). Inside the tin are so many individual servings of loose tea in little paper bags.
This is a heavy roasted Tieguanyin. I really like this tea. The scent is awesome, but the flavor is a little weak. Maybe it’s not as complex as one could hope, but it’s really easy to drink. Since I have over a pound of this, and it was a gift from one of my favorite people in the world, I think I am going to age this and continue to drink a cup of it on each birthday I have!
