Another cupboard staple.

I tell you, this tea is so refined…

If tea had a gender, this would be a beautiful sophisticated mature woman. She would wear couture and just a drop of channel no.5. She would also cary along the scent of buttery French pastries that she would have picked up on her way home at a famous bakery.

Therefore, her «sillage» would present itself as slightly and delicately flowery, with big notes of decadent rich creamy butter and cookie dough.

That’s the imprint this tea leaves in my mouth.

Just nothing else to add.

Dear Gussie, you are making my mouth water!

Amanda 'SoggyEnderman' Wilson

My goodness that tea sounds delightful!

Fjellrev

Haha I think that is where I differ. To me, anyone wearing Chanel no. 5 would not smell delicately flowery to me. That stuff is so heady.

Lol, Fjellrev, it was only to illustrate the high end side of this tea! That’s why I wrote a drop !! I know, way to strong for me also :-)

Fjellrev

Yeah yeah, I know haha. Just teasing. ;)

Gmatis and Amanda, I have sampled a few other Baozhong before. This one is the best so far for me. I have received some in a swap that can’t wait to try and compare :-)

Bio

Time to update this profile of mine…it’s 2015!!

I am French Canadian, so please forgive me if my English is not always perfect :-/

My relationship with tea in a nutshell:

I’m married to straight Black. I have torrid love affairs with Oolong and Puerh. I party with Green and White occasionally. Flavored are not my BFF, I usually stay away from them.

Love Steepster, a place for tea lovers, where you learn and share with others.

About me:

I am a free spirit, I let people be who they are and expect the same in return.

Books! I love classic literature, but also modern and pretty much anything that captures my attention.

Music is also something I can’t live without… From Bach to Nirvana, my ears know no boundaries…

Animal and nature lover, amateur photographer.

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember.

Drinking tea is a sensorial experience. The name in itself “Camellia Sinensis” lingers the promess of an adventure for the senses…

Not a big «swapper», but will occasionally. Not because I don’t want to share but because I’m trying not to hoard so much.

Also, I have narrowed down the teas I really like over the years, and I don’t feel the need to try and buy everything the way I used to. (Maybe I have become a tea snob? Sigh…)

My ratings: because I pretty much drink only teas that I judge exceptional, my ratings are usually high. Don’t be shocked to see lots of 90’s and a few 100’s. That’s because I’ve had my share of crapy teas and I’m done with that ;-)

You can find me on Instagram here, I post about my tea sessions mostly, but also about the beautiful nature that surrounds me, and my fury companions :-)
