My morning cup. The first steeping was deep, strong and dark. As far as energy goes, it failed. Or did I fail it? A 4 minute steep time with a bit over a teaspoon of leaf {the dried leaf smells awesome}. The second steep was somewhat weak and left me wanting something else. Maybe I will use more leaf and increase the steep time for the remainder of the sample. This is my second tasting of this tea since I received my samples from Upton. The first time it was better but unfortunetly it was a workday and my Steepster time is limited….

I am an avid surfer, gardener, golfer and freespirit. I have been a tea drinker forever. Tea has provided me with contentment. I love White, Oolong, Green, Black and Pu’er. I do not care for flavored tea and nor will I comment on it.
