The best way I can describe the prominent note of this tea is wet, rancid hay. It was unpleasant in the extreme. It tasted absolutely terrible. It did improve somewhat by the eighth steep. I couldn’t get past eight steeps with this one. This is one that looked interesting. Perhaps if I air this tea out for six months the negative notes will go away. I don’t recommend anyone buy this one.

I brewed this eight times in a 150ml gaiwan with 10g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, and 30 sec. I think I will send Scott an email over this brick this was terrible.

Flavors: Hay

Boiling 10 g 5 OZ / 150 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.
