607 Tasting Notes

I had this tea quite a few days ago and was not impressed. I tried many different infusions of it and each infusion kept tasting like dirty socks. Just not my cup of tea.

Hmm… What DO dirty socks taste like? :P

How much do you have left? Maybe a swap to take it off your hands?

607 tasting notes

Been sick this week with a cold and was taking the gel pills for congestion but decided to try this tea. At first I didn’t think it was working but one evening after work I had this tea two hours before bedtime and I noticed I didn’t need any meds before bed. It really helped settle down the lungs and stop some of the congestion. I’ve been taking it now all through my cold and it’s best in the evening. When I first drink it I don’t notice any difference. I seem to notice a difference 1 or 2 hours later.

So this tea is very effective when you have congestion in the lungs. There’s licorice root in it so there’s definitely a bit of sweet licorice flavour mingled with a bit of medicine herbs. Not unpleasant tasting at all. My rating is based on how it works and not the taste since that’s what this tea is for.

Flavors: Licorice, Medicinal

awesome to hear that it helps you out!

I love it, especially since I don’t have to resort to the nasty drugs. I’ve taken other herbal teas for lung congestion but none are as effective as this one.

The dry green leaves are very long and spindly and take up lots of space like a white tea. They smell so good from the bag – a rich green bean/chestnut smell.

This tea is very delicate and light. A light sweetness followed by a nutty chestnut flavour and green beans. Everything is very light and subtle about this tea.

I’ve had this tea sitting for two months unopened. So finally got around to trying it out today.

This tea is AMAZING!!!

When I opened the bag the fragrance of the tea was sooo good. Kind of a bit like a black tea, a bit like a green, fruity and fresh. I couldn’t stop sniffing it.

I brewed this at 80C for 2 min. I usually brew my whites at 90. Some use 70C. I figured I would change things up and go inbetween.

First infusion was intoxicating. Sweet and creamy (like in the Jin Xuan oolongs), with a fruity flavour (a bit like grape) and slightly malty. The sweetness was not overly strong but it had caramel notes. There was a little fruity tang to it too. I also got nutty notes like in green tea.

2nd infusion was more caramel and fruit. Less creamy/nutty.

There were elements of this tea that was like black, then white, and then green. What a unique tea! Glad I bought this one!

Flavors: Caramel, Creamy, Fruity, Malt, Nutty, Sweet

I’ve had this tea a few times and haven’t left a review yet. I love the way Taiwan Tea Crafts seal up their tea leaving no air. The teas are always very fresh as was this one. It was very sweet and nutty with a bit of green bean in the first infusion. No astringency at all. Second infusion was less sweet and hardly much green bean flavour but still good. Overall a great green tea.

I am really happy with all the teas I’ve ordered from Taiwan Tea Crafts. Unfortunately , I haven’t gotten around to leaving reviews on all them.

Having this one today and I finished the cup before I could get the review in. It’s that good. This tea is not artificially scented. Only scented with natural flowers. So the jasmine comes through but blends so good with the buttery, sweet, milky flavour of the Jin Xuan oolong

So good I am going for another infusion.

I have a sample that’s 2011 of this cake so I assume I am leaving the review on the right tea. I had this one today and it did not impress me. It brewed up a gold colour. I was having the tea while I was working so I wasn’t mentally making notes of each infusion. It is just that each infusion did not impress me. I would brew one up, have a few sips, say “nope, not right”, and then do another infusion. I didn’t hate it but I can’t say I loved this tea either. Nothing seemed to stand out about it.

I had this tea yesterday . Brewed it up with a bit less leaf than the sencha from the same company. I found the first brewing of the sencha had too much umami for me. This time with a bit less leaf and shorter brew time ( 30 sec instead of 1 min ) at 60C. It came out perfect. Grassy, good umami but not overpowering, very sweet.

Next brewing was at 80C for 15 sec. A little bitterness crept into that one with a bit of astringency. Umami was toned down but still good.

I did one more infusion after that and hit my caffeine level. I love Japanese teas but I hit my caffeine level much quicker than with Chinese greens.

All 3 teas I tried from this company were great. Thanks Allan for giving me a chance to try them out. If they offer smaller quantities and better shipping rates in the future, I may buy from them.

Flavors: Astringent, Grass, Sweet, Umami

Green teas are my favourite teas but I also enjoy: white, some herbal,rooibos, raw pu’erh, light oolongs, a little bit of black , and a little bit of ripe pu’erh. I have moved away from artificial flavourings and there’s hardly anything left in my cabinet with artificial flavouring or colours. It is mostly straight teas or tea blends.
