160 Tasting Notes
Brewed up strong pretty quickly. Has a classic tea taste which always makes me want to make iced tea (and that is exactly what I did with it), yet there is also some earthiness to it. This is really hitting the spot tonight after doing a ton of yard work on an unusually warm Winter day. Very rich…the taste is lingering in my mouth for some time after drinking it. The price is very reasonable as well. Worthy of a re-order for sure.
The first Indian green tea I have tried!
Nose – Has a mild sweet smell to it that I haven’t detected in any other green teas before.
Mouth – Mild, tastes buttery and nutty to me mostly.
Finish – Goes down pretty smoothly, not harsh at all.
The price looks pretty decent on this, I’ll probably get more next time I put in an order with this company.
Smells like I expect wuyi to smell: roasty, earthy/minerally/hot-rock-like, perhaps a little nutty.
Taste is similar, plus I am getting some notes that remind me of caramel, maybe even raisin.
I am getting a surprisingly mild mouthfeel considering the robust aroma. Pretty good deal on price, I’d buy it again.
I usually like to steep oolongs at a lower temp, but just a small amount of leaves at 200F for a minute or two or more seems to be best for me with this tea.
This tea is kind of hard to describe, but really good. I’m getting nutty, vegetal, seaweed-like flavors (but in a pleasant, unharsh way). Some other people say it reminded them of miso soup, which I guess I can sort of see in that it has a nice thick, broth-like mouthfeel, but the taste doesn’t make me think of that.
