sadly the flavour on this one has faded. It’s not nearly as amazing as it was when i first picked it up – so the shelf like on it is probably ideally between 1-9 months. That being said, it’s still delicious but i’d rate this at about a 78 versus the original 90 in terms of intensity of the taste. I’m going to add some to the GCTTB so that others can try it before it totally wanes – just be aware that it’s a shadow of what it once was. I just have too much to be able to finish it all on my own in a fast manner heh.

So sad! I thought the lackluster flavor was just poor storage of my original sample, I don’t think I’ve even opened the new package…

Had a cup of this the other night to say goodbye to it. The last of this is off to be shared with tea friends! I still really enjoy this one, though my tastes have changed enough since i had my first sample of this, to warrant dropping the rating a little. It’s a tasty green, but there are others out there that are more reasonably priced and deliver some fantastic taste.

Gotta love working from home on a day when all your meetings are cancelled. Now i can be productive with both work, home stuff and exercise lol this particular tea is growing on me. The more i have it, the more almost chocolatey it seems.

I wanted to try this one before i send out the box today/tomorrow so i’m working on sipping through this one now. I vastly prefer shou to sheng, but i’m always open to trying new teas in case i find that hidden gem that i love.
woke the tea up and then let it sit for a bit – these tiny bricks are fairly compressed.

Initial steepings of this one are quite nice. This is, so far, a milder sort of sheng – light on the vegetal sort of taste i don’t love – smooth and there’s a hint of sweetness starting to poke through. interesting to see how this plays out this morning

Good call on letting the tea open a bit after the rinse. These mini cakes tend to take considerably longer to open up compared to a regular cake. I’ve been known to cheat with these and give them a poke or two with my tea needle early on…

still love this one. So glad i have lots left to enjoy. Here’s hoping i can get organised with my cupboard this weekend so i can really have a small-er cupboard with things i adore instead of just enjoy. this would fit nicely in to that type of cupboard heh

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
