A——— at What-Cha added this as a sample in my latest order, presumably based on my like for strongly flavoured, well roasted Oolong. Hot and at first steep I got lots of seaweed and iodine. As it cooled and in subsequent steeping there’s pear as suggested on the supplier’s site, and also I got a nutty green flavour not unlike roasted acorns.

H tasted turpenes — how to put this delicately? — of the sort smelled when wandering out of Camden or Brixton tube stations. But I didn’t get that at all.

Flavors: Green Wood, Iodine, Pear, Roasted Nuts, Seaweed

I gave up alcohol in 2013. When my taste buds came back I discovered tea.

75+ I’ll seek this out again.
50+ I enjoyed this.
25+ Not for me but may be for some. I’ll take a cup if I’m your guest.
0+ I’ll politely decline if you brew this.

I brew gongfu style – lotsa tea, brief brew, then into a sharing cup. It really changed tea for me after not quite “getting it” from western style brewing.
