89 Tasting Notes
Taste is definitly both nutty and sweet, but slightly dry as well. Aroma is a little nutty also, not grassy has I have had with other green teas like this. Color is a nice green-gold.
Very light. Very floral, but not overpowering. Leaves are a combination of bright and dark greens, and silver buds. I used two full teaspoons. Next time, I think I’ll use three. Try to boost the flavors a bit.
Vary delicate aroma, and stronger floral taste. Maybe jasmine, not sure. Next steep will be interesting.
Another great oolong variety.
Got distracted, so the steep was quite long. maybe 15 minutes. The roasted flavor comes through quite strongly, but the astringency makes the tea undrinkable for me. But no rating, since it was an unfair tasting.
Something new for the first cup of the day. Another good oolong. Flavors are more subtle, slightly sweeter than others. The aftertaste is slightly fruity but not enough to say it is definitely pear.
As the tea cools, hints of pear become more pronounced.
A very smooth fine body. Nice malty aroma and taste. Very slight astringency.
Nice straw colored brew, slightly floral aroma, and a slight grain in the taste, maybe rice.
The dragon ball slowly unfurls, but not as elegantly as a flowering tea. Further steeps will reveal how well it holds together, or not. It does need plenty of room. (teapot size rather than glass size)
Darker brew, smoky flavor, neither sweet nor bitter.
3rd steep. Fruity taste appears
Compared to Zealong Pure, a darker brew, a little more floral aroma and a slight astringent taste, but still very pleasant.
