3 Tasting Notes

This… was not what I was expecting. I was really disappointed by this tea. I like puerhs, so I was excited for a nice change in pace with a touch of rose, but on the first couple infusions this tea was actually BITTER. Not the usual bitterness that you expect from tannins either, but bitterness like from okra or something. Very, very off putting… I hoped it was only one tuo cha that was like this, but both were. Oh yeah, and if there was any rose, it was covered up by the bitterness.

This is one of my favorite Jin Xuans I’ve had! Apricot and cream notes for the first couple infusions, then some butter notes coming through later infusions.
