drank Tan Yang Jing Zhi by TeaSpring
1112 tasting notes

This is a review-by-proxy. I made a pot of this for my husband this morning. He loooo-oooo-oooooved it. It’s hard to get lots of words out of anyone in the morning, but I can tell you that he groaned, and said it was soooo good, and amazing. I’ll have to try it in order to get…more adjectives. :)

He’s been having tea instead of coffee in the morning and he has almost finished off Thomas Sampson! I had three tins of him before this tea-in-the-morning business!

Tea-in-the-morning business – that’s a good thing right?

It’s a good thing :) BUT! his favorite morning tea is also a limited edition tea, which is getting more limited each morning if you catch my drift ;)

I look forward to further reviews, possibly with adjectives! :)

On the Tan Yang/Panyang topic, I made a pot of Harney Panyang Congou this morning and as I was drinking it there was, yes, a “tang” that was very familiar … after a moment of reflection I realized it was Zhi Gong Fu Black that it reminded me of. This is a tea family with a lot of cousins.

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
