6407 Tasting Notes
after dinner latte – though tonight i used a sifter to get rid of all the sugar in my bag before i brewed it…HOLY CRIPES there was a lot of sugar in this. Lemon Lily – that is a vote against you since at the rate i was looking at, at least 20% of the bag’s weight was that sugar. and really? if i want a tea that is sweet, i can add my own. but you know what? this tea doesn’t need it.
Final Count: 155 which is up, but not so bad since i added teas to my cupboard today AND managed to sip some down!
mmmmm this was a shared purchase from the toronto tea festival between Cavocorax and i. I’m only just now getting a chance to try it out, but i swore she had it before me. Seems like steepster ate her note or i’m imagining things. :)
I’ve been brewing this gonfu this afternoon….im’ not getting a citrus note…just a sweet mineral like note that turns almost cocoa-y…maybe? I think i need a few more steepings..haha more to come but i’m happy with this pick from zhen tea!
Pretty sure this is the first hei cha that i’ve had – again courtesy of my tea sister Terri Sadly, all i remember about this tea was it’s really unique taste…and finding myself at the bottom of the cup way too quickly. I’m glad i have more to have again when i can get a proper tasting note up for it. :)
so the best part about small samples? getting to fill up your friends tea boxes with tea as you drink your samples haha. Oh….the joys of tea sharing :) While i like this tea…i think i’m over it. It’s just not amazing enough for me to want to keep it in my cupboard. Dropping the rating a little since it’s staying power with me didn’t seem to be there.
