Wow the nose of this is something I have never smelled on a roasted Dong Ding. This will be my 4th that I have tasted. Doing this in the gaiwan.
Smell: sweet brown sugar, coffee, a creamy nutty smell.
First Steep: After a quick rinse I do a 20 sec brew time to start things off. No much coming through, not as roasting as I would expect.
Smell: More coffee, and coconut coming off the gaiwan. Smells even better.
2nd Steep: Still not much on taste coming through. This tea is a lot lighter then I would expect.
So far I am intrigued I just wish it will give me a little more. Long steeping will hopefully change this.
Hmmm smell is nice and grassy in the packet. I made the mistake of brewing it in a gaiwan first..which I do not recommend. Afterwards I switched it to my little tea pot that has a fine mesh inside of it. A lot better experience.
The taste is sweet and grassy. A little creamy and finishes with the hazelnut note. I like it.
Well it has been awhile since I have written a tasting note. It has been a while since I really drank tea, so my taste buds are a little rusty.
I get a oily taste. The smell almost musky. I wish I could get the crisp apple taste like the description says, but Im not tasting that sadly.
Not my cup of tea sadly…
So I was cleaning out my tea stash. Getting rid of anything that I did not want. I came upon this a small sample from way back. I remember having tried this when I first got it a little over a year ago and just did not like it. But when it comes to Puer Im not a big fan. The fishy mustiness of it turns me off.
I have not been drinking tea like I used to and I though why not drink this tonight. I rinsed 3 times to get the mustiness smell out of the way for me to try it again. I always smell the wet leave before I taste the tea to get my senses going.
A nice cedar with a sweet fig smell. Hmmmm, a lot better than I thought. I noticed when it comes to puer, I must rinse a few more times for me to drink it. I seems hat others rinse once or twice and can enjoy it. Im happy I tasted this again, since it is no longer sold.
