545 Tasting Notes

so i had this tea when i was at the RBG (royal botanical gardens) tea house.

not too good, but good enough to try :) tasted like a black tea instead of vanilla. due to the fact i have no more, and the lack of taste/quality, i shall not be doing a full review. definitely not recommended to try, you’ll just be disappointed unless you are the kind of person who loves all tea they drink/try

(i forgot to take a picture, silly me.)

Medium steep: I taste/smell strong smoke. Medium -> sweet, smoke, fruit (blueberries) wood, spices.

Heavy steep: I taste/smell; medium -> sweet, smoke, wood, spices, fruit (blueberries).

All in all this is quite a yummy tea. It’s like a mix of oolong and black tea.

Since this is a black tea, and I’m not much for black teas, I rate a 90

i recommend this tea for those who want to try something like an oolongy black tea

Flavors: Fruity, Green, Roasted, Smoke, Spices, Sweet, Wood

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 7 tsp 165 OZ / 4879 ML

You’ll notice a lot of red/black teas coming out of Taiwan, especially those created by TRES, have much in common with oolong. This tea sounds great.

a note from sean:

Growing from Li Shan, the middle high mountain area of Taiwan, where the altitude is about 2,400m. This area is the top premium high mountain tea growing place in Taiwan. Our winter essence oolong tea not only has the extremely smooth soft texture, but also layer upon layer floral fruity after taste strike in the throat. This is our top premium and very limited batch of high mountain Li Shan oolong tea.

Flavors: Asparagus, Floral, Fruity, Green, Rose, Seaweed, Sweet, Wet Wood

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 7 tsp 6 OZ / 165 ML

Rose is an interesting floral for an Li Shan.
