This was an Asian style steeping (I used a gaiwan).

The first infusion of the tea was amazing! Gave me hope, that one day I would like to drink Pu’ers. It was full bodied, incredibly smooth, with a rosey floral taste with a hint of wet leaves. The finish lingered for quite some time too. The color was a almost brick red, but with an orange hue to it. Kind of like a sunset.

The second taste was as dark as it can get at dusk, without it being entirely black. The taste was a strong wet leaves taste, with the floral taste on the side.

Flavors: Musty, Rose, Wet Earth

About Myself:
I am 24 year old living in nowhere Iowa. I enjoy ballroom dancing, meditation, yoga and traveling. However, I am stuck where I am for a couple more months, so I have indulged in my (debatably) bad habit of video gaming. I am open to tea swapping, but there are very few teas I would be interested in trying. I enjoy all music, though jazz, alternative and EDM are my go-tos.
