5 Tasting Notes
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.
