69 Tasting Notes
Gung hay fa choi! This was a hit at Chinese New Year. Intense jasmine aroma. Naturally sweet jasmine, melon taste. One big pot stood up to three steepings, though the third was pushing it. Leaving the leaves in the pot it got a little bitter, but not bad. Stood up well to haphazard temperature and steep times.
A smooth, minty, caffeinated beverage. I was hoping for more tea flavor with pu-erh in the mix, but the mint really dominates. The vanilla is just a hint. Dark, dark liquor is very appealing. It looks like it would pack a punch, but the flavor doesn’t match the appearance.
