8g in a 200ml glass teapot with 195 degree F water

The taste is more reminiscent of a good Indian Assam than all of the chocolate heavy Yunnan blacks I have been drinking lately. Malty with a berry jammy quality that I keep going back to. I notice little astringency even with smaller broken bits that I bet would come out with higher temp and longer steep time.

I almost wish it wasn’t in cake form as its compressed tightly and I end up destroying a good bit of it when I break off some for a session.

Flavors: Berry, Jam, Malt

195 °F / 90 °C 1 min, 0 sec 8 g 7 OZ / 200 ML

I am a trained Cicerone (Beer sommelier) attempting to transfer my palette and skills to the tea world.

I have been enjoying tea for well over a decade, and more recently have come across my true passion for tea. I love learning about the culture, history, production, cultivation, and most importantly enjoyment of the beverage itself.

My favorite tea is black followed by sheng then oolong so far.

So far my favorite terroir is Jingmai with Yiwu a close second.
