drank Pouchong by Canton Tea Co
223 tasting notes

My first pouchong. Upon opening the package, the tea smelt sweet and floral, like I would expect a normal green to smell like.

After steeping, the tea is a pale green and still smells floral, but also toasty. It tastes like a green, but without the grassiness I find in many normal greens. It is a lovely taste, but it is very astringent, to the point where it actually hurts my throat. Maybe if I used less leaf (I did use quite a lot, admittedly) this would get better. I will hold off rating this until I’ve had it again.

Bio

My love of tea began when I walked into a shop one day and they were giving out samples of jasmine silver needles. It was absolutely gorgeous, and I have been addicted to tea ever since. Jasmine silver needles remains my favourite tea to this day.

I think my favourite types are white teas and oolongs, though I will pretty much drink anything.

Aside from tea, I’m into Star Wars, music, furniture, food, Lilly Dache hats and vintage clothing.
