This is fairly tasty but I used a little too much of the tangerine peel so it’s fairly smoky tasting. The tangerine peel imparts a bit of a sour note too. This only got brewed western style tonight as I am tired and lacking time for a proper gongfu session. This is tasty and hits the spot though. The nice thing about this is you can dial the smokiness back by simply using less tangerine peel or none at all.

I brewed this once in a 16oz Teavana Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 12g of tea and tangerine peel with boiling water for 30 sec.

Flavors: Earth, Smoke, Sweet

Boiling 0 min, 30 sec 12 g 16 OZ / 473 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.
