I’M GOING TO SEE RADIOHEAD LIVE IN JUNE, WOO!!! Anyways, this is another sample provided generously by Tommy the Toad. This one really caught my attention. The tiny square wrapped in gold foil reminded me of a piece of candy, and I will admit that that probably subconsciously caused me to want to try it so much. Well, it was great. This one is more mellow and black-tea like than the Twin Elephant pu-erh I had before it. It’s still got that distinct earthy and musty taste, but it is very mellow and is more in the background. The tea is very smooth and definitely had a sweetness to it that I wasn’t expecting. I LOVE this. Thanks, Tommy.

2nd steeping: I broke the brick apart this time and it produced a much stronger brew but was still delicious, this time there are HUGE notes of chocolate. Rating is going up a notch…

My name is Kyle. I love good tea, a good book, the great outdoors, and I am passionate about music. I also find enjoyment in writing and mountain biking here in beautiful Central Oregon.

Tea is a hugely misunderstood and under-appreciated gift in the western world, and my hope is to spread the gift of quality tea. It is communion between the passion of man and the raw beauty of nature. It is art, and it is therapy. I hope you enjoy my writings.
