drank Outlaw by August Uncommon Tea
373 tasting notes

I made a cup of this for myself and one for my partner. Mine ended up undrinkably bitter and his ended up slightly bitter with a little bit of smoke and no fruit taste at all. Not sure what I did to this one but at least I have a few more cups to try again!

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 45 sec

Oh no! I have this one but haven’t tried it yet. My default steep time for black teas is 3 minutes though.

I’ve found that I generally like August Uncommon’s black teas between 4-5 minutes, especially to compensate for not getting to 212°, but I don’t think that holds true for this one!

Ooh, a tricksy one! From the photo it looks like there’s some CTC black tea mixed in, so maybe that was your downfall ha ha.

I’ve lived in Hawaii, Mississippi, Colorado, Maryland, Texas, California, and Oklahoma. I’m just waiting to see where we end up next!

My preferences are towards black and oolong teas but I love trying new and/or weird teas! I’m finally learning to enjoy green tea.

We recently moved to about 6500 feet above sea level and I’m still trying to get the hang of the lower boiling point! Any tips would be appreciated :)

I really love swapping, so if anything in my cupboard catches your eye, please let me know! I’m currently updating the cupboard and adding it to my fancy new spreadsheet so it’s looking a little bare at the moment
