Dry leaf smells flowery-lilac? Half of cake to gaiwan. 1st steep at 15s – lightly roasted. Wet leaf smells sweet and flowery, honey. Rasting honey, creamy, light roast. Further steeps adding 15s to each one. Continued to get flowery sweetness with creamy mouthfeel. I ended up getting 11 steeps out of the tea. Soft, but distinct in flavor. I could continue with the leaf for longer if desired.

I finished the other half of the cake this morning and I have to say I had a nice repeat of this session. Floral, creamy, sweet and light roast. Very happy with the purchase of this tea.

Flavors: Creamy, Floral, Honey, Roasted, Smooth

I started my tea journey with Stash/Celestial Seasonings tea bags years ago. All loose leaf, unless I’m sick or traveling.

I like black, oolong, white, herbals, and raw/ripe pu’erh. I don’t drink green tea often.

I play video games, read, and do pottery. My current favorite tea mug is one I threw and glazed.

I generally review teas twice – initial and final steeps.

My cupboard is completely out of date. I have a spreadsheet that has 250 teas, but is also out of date. And tea all over the living room that hasn’t been logged anywhere!

Ratings
85-100 are teas that I loved and want to keep in stock.
71-84 are teas that are good. I may or may not get them again. Source for daily drinkers/work teas.
60-70 are teas that I didn’t like. I’ll finish what I bought.
Anything less than 60…nope.
