This was another purchase from the asian grocery store. It is not half bad, not great, but better than I expected. It has a very strong raosted barley taste, very strong. There is a little bitterness but not much. There is also very little sweetness. It qualifies as drinkable tea, but not good tea.

I brewed this once, western style in an 18oz teapot with 175 degree water and 3 tsp leaf for 3 min.

Flavors: Roasted Barley

175 °F / 79 °C 3 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 18 OZ / 532 ML

I am Allan. I live and work in Long Island, New York. I have been amassing a tea collection for nearly two years and have spent way too much money. I now try to buy mostly Puerh as I like it most and it lasts nearly forever. Black tea has a habit of going bad. If anyone is interested in tea swaps I am open to ideas and have quite a cupboard.
