    The leaves that Denny simply picked then air dried would actually be considered a white tea, so it makes sense that you got the white tea taste in the finish!

    The pan fried leaves would be a green tea, but could have had the same white tea finish if he didn’t pan fry them enough to halt the oxidization

      Anyway, Denny should keep practicing; Maybe eventually he’ll get the hang of it! Green or black would probably be the easiest. For a black tea he’d want to shake/roll/bruise the leaves and then let them sit and oxidize for a day or two or three before pan frying or lightly baking them.

      Aha. Thanks Brian. Indeed you are correct.

    Did it smell like Bigfoot’s dick?

    Delightful! A good chuckle all the way and I’m getting antsy for spring tea now!

    Hilarious episode, as well as informative. I will never buy anything from Denny’s Tea Farm. No offense.

    And just for the record… Monkeys are people too!

    Like the saying goes “Don’t try this at home, kids”.
