5 Tasting Notes
This is one tea that I deeply enjoyed. So far this year, this tea is number 1 on my list. Too bad we are not sure where it came from. We will keep you posted if we find out any details.
I am brewing this exact tea while typing this. Cooled the water down till around 75c or about 170F. The leaves are a bit smaller then I am used to with most silver needle. Let it brew for 2 min. Slightly a little dry, but still with that soothing sweet after taste. For the price it is not bad at all. I think the water for the Rishi variety could have been hotter, like 175-180.
1 day ago. One of the best Golden Yunnans I have had. Big leaves, very tippy, the only thing is that it came in a cellophane container. After 1 pot it never tasted the same again. I thought I brewed it wrong so I kept trying. Still this weird aftertaste that lingered. If anyone goes to Columbus Ohio, be sure to check out Zen-Cha.
Drank 2 days ago, very good. I would say 3rd best Yunnan I had. Rishi’s version is nice but the leaves are smaller for a typical golden Yunnan. Brewed 6g in a 20 oz pot for 1:25 sec. Brings a nice sweetness with that distinctive “tobacco” like aroma.
