Somehow a couple of these samples got lost when I moved awhile back and I just recently found them. I don’t know that I’ve ever tried a Jin Jun Mei before and usually steep my teas western since I do not have a Gongfu setup. One thing that bothered me a little bit was the packaging nor the website has steeping information for this tea. So I did a little research and followed Verdant’s steeping recommendation. I loved how clear the information was for me since I often don’t have time to do a bunch of short steeps. I drank this while working on my final test for Criminal Justice.
1st Steep-18 seconds
2nd Steep-28 seconds
3rd Steep-38 seconds (this particular steep was my favorite and had a lovely flavor)
4th Steep-48 seconds
5th Steep-58 seconds (this steep had started to lose flavor)
6th Steep- 5 minutes

Overall I got 4 good steeps from this tea and the third steep was my favorite.

Flavors: Cocoa, Honey, Smoke

I drink tea for many reasons: For pleasure, health benefits, mindfulness, to help with anxiety, hydration because I have always struggled with drinking plain water.
My rating system is kind of a mess and I keep telling myself I’ll fix it sometime.

0-23 Rating Means I couldn’t finish the cup
50- Undecided on a rating or don’t remember enough about it to rate the tea.
