Sipdown prompt: Your oldest tea
Well, actually I am not sure if this is the oldest tea in my books; but rough look in my black tea box says it is at least from blacks. And I also decided to finish those last single session teas worth amounts; so those 3 grams from derk and White Antlers definitely passes that one too.

This tea I was afraid to prepare. Don’t ask me why… but definitely I have been storing it for longer time than it needs. Definitely old one and I had it for longer time as well. Maybe it was 176 F, or 30-45 sec. on the label? Well… I just set the temperature on the kettle for requested temperature. It’s not that strange temperature at all!

Steeped for 45 sec and it was indeed a bit too short as derk notices so, I did right after the 2-3 minute one (included the first one) and I got nice, cocoa notes, but sadly, in the flavour it is rather woody. I guess it’s because the age.

It reminds me a Wooricha from Dobrá čajovna, but that’s definitely possible as it is a cousin of this tea. That one is also a Korean black tea, sadly, I just haven’t found any more information but it’s from Mr. Cho garden. This one is rather a co-op tea and that effort is good for me as well.

Kept without a rating as it’s old. If I get a fresh batch, I would gladly rate it.

175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 45 sec 3 g 10 OZ / 300 ML

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Photographer now and then. Postcrossing and geocaching member. Very curious person. Logistics student (should finish in June 2021).

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
