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 :-)

Profile

Bio

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

My relationship with tea in a nut shell:

I’m married to straight Blacks. I have torrid love affairs with Oolongs. My BFF are Greens. I socialize more and more with Pu’erhs. I have distant White acquaintances that I visit once in a while. I party with Flavored!

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 and what they want to be and expect the same in return.

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

As tea and books, music is something I can’t live without! From Bach to Nirvana, my ears know no boundaries…

Art is food for the soul…I consume lots of it.

Animal and nature lover, I will never let a fury friend in needs.

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember. But since I’v joined Steepster, my tea knowledge has emancipated exponentially.

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

As for my rating system, well it’s pretty much inexistent…Since I don’t write many reviews, I try to focus on the good stuff and will usually review teas that left a big impression on me.

Not a big «swapper» but if we do get to swap together, you’ll remember me, I live up to my Fairy reputation :-)

I love taking tea pics, here’s my Instagram:
