13 Tasting Notes

Nice tea and definetely a good buy.

I got a sample of this tea then actually bought some. It is sweet, but not as sweet as some, and I decided to roast it a bit longer in the over after trying it a few times and noticing it wasnt as roasted as I liked. I may have not given it the best roast, but it defintely was more to my liking after.

It was nice, vegetavive and a bit floral.

Try it, I think you will like it.

Ps- Longer brews are better for this tea, not too hot

Probably one of the best Pu’ers I have had. The price was really fair and it came with very specific instructions on how to brew it, so I actually followed them! Go me.

The insctructions said to pour out the first 2-3 washes, but I was curious(why not) and drank them anyway. They were really good! Why am I dumping these out? I think it is a time when the leaves are opening up and cleaning them and whatnot.

I drank the tea in a very quite room, and the tea made the room quieter, but brighter and made me more aware. It calmed me down a lot. The first 3-5 brew were very cherry/apricot like and I brewed it all the way until the 12th or so pot. It got sweeter as time went by, but not sweet overall. A really complex tea: basically meaning it had a lot to it.

I loved it, yay!

PS- I made it in a gaiwan, and steeped it for up to a minute a few times to just try it out, but mostly its best around 10-15 seconds.

Sweet but refreshing.

Im not big on these teas but they are quite nice sometimes, especially during the day or for trying to ice from time to time.

I like drinking it and watching the leaves float in the cup.

For sure a sheng from what seems like Autumn months.

It had a bit of sweetness to it that reminded me of some green teas, but it was much more deep than that and not as fun but more complex for sure. I am a lover of ALL pu’ers, as long as they are good…which ALL are not, haha.

This is a well above average tea though. The deep tobacco with a little sweetness and a lot of life to it…lasts a while. I give it a 85% or so as it could have had a bit more to it being that it is 6-7 years old…but still a FINE TEA!

Wow- this tea has been sold out for two years: I thought there was none left in the world except a cake in Wang Yanxin’s house, a broken up cake with us, and a cake with my parents. Have you been holding onto this one for awhile?

SO surprised to like this tea. Usually I go to Taiwanese teas for Oolongs or go to India for assams…what a funny switch!

Very bold, chocolatey carmel taste. A hint of vanilla here and there.

BOLD, is the best word to use. yes, Bold.

I like their teas usually, and this tea is no exception. A great tea. Thank you

If you like floral/spring teas, this tea is for you.

I am not big on the floral teas, but bought this last week thinking that it would be a bit more fresh/spring like as opposed to Floral and young. That isnt a bad thing at all, just not for my taste. I like the darker roasted ones, mmmm.

Quality and whatnot: great. Its a fine tea and I shared it with some ladies who really liked it. So I gave it to them :)

Good tea but not aged, certainly processed.

One of the better Shous out there for sure though.

I recommened drinking it after the 4th or 5th steeping when it settled down a bit. They did a good job with it. BEST with boiling water

Is it annyoing if I say I agree with ALL the good comments. haha. It is a great tea. I bought about 5 Ooolongs this month and this was my favorite. 100% for me.

Write me if you have any questions. SO GOOD.

Also tried this iced. Mmmmmm. Didnt need long to open up and bring out the flavor. 30-60 seconds was plenty

Bio

I started loving teas the day I started drinking GOOD teas. I always like the romance of making tea and it took me a while to actually drink good teas. I started with a lot of Chinese teas because that is my cultural background.

I like Pu’er and Oolongs the best probably, but sometimes I try greens and I even dablle with the silly stuff sometimes just for fun. Haha.

Always happy to chitchat about whatever and feel free to message me. I am newer to some teas, so if you ever want to trade, lets do it :)
