I’m drinking the March tea club on time. This tea is super fresh (picked late Feb 2019).
Dry leaf has lots of stems and leaves that remind me of white tea. Smells of linen and looks unfinished. According to the info, this tea is in its natural state after processing, with stems and large leaves. It’s missing the final roast. Considered unfinished product and would not normally be available.
Drinking this western today. My variable temperature kettle broke, I have have one that just boils right now.
3 steeps, 1-2 min, approx 200F
Aroma – waft of wood, floral. Taste: floral, orchid, tingly, creamier as it cools, initially it had no depth, super-floral aftertaste
I enjoyed this educational tea.

Flavors: Creamy, Floral, Green, Orchid, Wood

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 1 min, 30 sec

Bio

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My cupboard is completely out of date. I have a spreadsheet that has 250 teas, but is also out of date.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.
