A very powerful tea. If you brew this with >5g/100mL with flash steeping you’re in for a bitter and sour brew – which for me was enjoyable! Underneath the bitterness and astringency is a lot of aroma, with tonnes of fruit and floral notes, very complex and enjoyable. The aroma notes come through in a strong sweet and sour aftertaste that lingers and lingers. Underpinning all of this is a full body, a little oily and some mineral notes. The tea will go on and on, getting slowly but surely sweeter and fruitier as time passes.

Finally the qi, strong and warm, I felt like I was wrapped in cotton wool, high as a kite and happy as Larry :)

A tea that can be enjoyable now, if you’re into this sort of thing, or I think a worthy ageing investment :)

5 g 3 OZ / 100 ML

I’m Robbie!

I’m 22 with a B.Sc in chemistry, currently doing a PhD in synthetic organic chemistry, both in University College Dublin.

Tea has become one of the most important parts of my life. I drink it almost everyday, and it grounds me whenever I need grounding, calms me when I need calming, and entertains me when I’m in need of entertaining.

I drink mostly oolong and puerh tea, sometimes green tea (in spring and summer), rarely white and yellow tea, and occasionally black tea (it comes in phases). I have a deep love for traditional oolongs, yancha and puerh (shou and sheng) in particular! :D

I post regularly on instagram about tea, I try to keep my blog up to date but never succeed, and I rarely go near that twitter account. My personal twitter account is www.twitter.com/mcrdotcom!
