14 Tasting Notes

50

Dry leaves have floral notes. Shiny yellow liquour with noticeable smoky flavor and some bitternes (expected for this age and pedigree), not sweet. Bring me about eight good infusions in a small gaiwan. Ifused leaves are small and mostly broken, few tips. Leaving aside our smoked nature is regular puerh. Perhaps it is a good gateway to Xiaguan world.

Strong and aromatic first infusions, with very pleasant bitterness and camphor taste, no smokiness. Leaves look right (not spectacular at all), but appears to be good aged and compressed (not too tight). I step multiple infusions and feels a good qi and and a sweet aftertaste . I believe this a good 7542.

But this tea from Aliexpress. Good looking cake, with medium aged look and little pressed leaves, but with poor fragance . I taste it two times with 6 and 7 g, little astringency and thin body..Infused leaves have a very soft scent to camphor and looks broken, with lot of stems. I think could be a fake cake or a authentic low quality blend. Overall taste is flat with little complexity.

Purchased in Dragon tea house (2015). I like this tea, fresh and citric flavor, little smoky in the first infusions and camphor notes in later ones, beautiful leaves. Let rest some minutes after the first rise, so the leaves hydrate and expand. I prefer a bit strong infusions so I use 5g of leaves in 100 cc of water. Recommend it

Interesting puerh. No bitterness, wood flavor (and color) and earthy aroma. The leaves are good, not too fermented or compresed. One good detail is that the brick is not very tight.Nice packaging..good for storaging

This oolong is sweet and frutal, the leaves are aromatic and incredible beautiful. I drank with almost boiling water several times and always was great experience. One reason to love tea

I have little experience in Tie Guan Yin but I found this oolong very mild to be charcoal backed. I feel that first infusions have low power, but is more sweet than other oolongs when you steeps multiple times. The leaves are beautiful, green dark and wide, beautiful to drink in a chawan

This tea looks great, entire leves with greenish color and a lot of beautiful white tips. Is a very mild puerh whith sweet aftertaste. Indeed is very atipical, is more a green tea, similar to a Pai mu tan than a puerh. Also has a low “qui” but is pleasant. With almost boiling water I saw better results than with 90°C.
