123 Tasting Notes
Zhen Mei or Chun Mee, whatever spelling they would like to use, is never my favorite Chinese green, I much prefer Dragonwell but it is interesting. It has a lot more bite then most green teas and an almost dry dusty earthiness, which is a paradox I know. Might need some honey for it.
This tea tastes just like miso soup to me, brothy and creamy with a slight sweetness. The aftertaste is a hint of very dark chocolate. This is my favorite by far of the adagio black tea sampler. I don’t know if it’s the pan frying method or what but this is the first tea I’ve had that has had an almost “soupy” mouthfeel. Very good.
