122 Tasting Notes
A nice light green, very middle of the road. A little brothy, light vegetal taste. Very average but dependable.
I put two balls in for about three minutes and that seems to do the trick. It’s chocolatey and smooth. While it isn’t as complex as a keemun or yunnan tea it still is very relaxing and I am using it more and more to end the day.
This is my fourth attempt at this tea. First few times I foolishly steeped it too long hoping it would blossom into something more palatable. In the end, however, it keeps on tasting like soggy smelly wood, almost like driftwood. A minute thirty steep time helps make it a little better but I do not taste any honey or “floral” hints. It’s a very blah oolong.
Very light and crisp green tea. First infusion: very light vegetal taste with a sharper almost oolong bite after. I don’t taste the smoky gunpowder reference but its a nice simple green.
This extremely light green tea, I know it’s almost a white, is very light and sweet. Its slightly brothy and also has a kiwi aftertaste. Very good anytime tea.
Smokey and minty, two of my favorite things. It’s like a green version of lapsang. Also the little pellets make you feel like your spooning out kitty litter but luckily it doesn’t taste like it.
Very smooth with a strong peachy aftertaste. Reminds me of Yunnan without the bite. Very nice.
Of the two keemuns for sale at Churchill this is the cheaper one and thus the one that needed a snappier name, thus “Panda”. Its not bad, it has almost clove and cinnamon aftertaste, a nice holiday keemun, not much smokiness though and no chocolate taste. Not bad but I’m looking forward to trying the fancier one.
Vegetal and nutty and sweeter then most green tea, this is one of my favorites. Has an almost caramel aftertaste. Very nice.
Although I hate using the word because it reminds me of a certain drink, this tea is brisk. It has a smooth clean taste, slightly floral and a little bit of cherry. Sweeter then assam and ceylon, this is a perfect morning tea.
