5 Tasting Notes
Post rain morning. Steep #2. Divine.
Decent Jin Xuan that’s more mellow on the floral notes. There’s a definite creamy texture…a certain butteriness to the texture. It brews a beautiul darker golden brew that goes down easily. It’s not my favorite because I think it lacks some character, but it’s not bad. Think more creamy, less floral for a formosa oolong.
My breakfast tea. My go to tea. My every day tea…that is until they ran out! waiting for this to come back in stock, lalala
One of my favorites. I steep this many times over (learned this from Chaikhana, presently Hidden Peak Teahouse), and the sweetness resonates beautifully. It is a complex puerh that has earthen notes. Hailing from 1997, this tea really is Grand! It’s a high quality puerh. One that you feel may have transcendental affects…like float out your window on a cloud…a tea that makes you glad to be alive. Ok, ok, it’s my favorite. I accept that now.
