2345 Tasting Notes
A nice little oolong from Arbor teas – my favorite compostable packaging company.
This one is very good if you like the darker style of oolongs. Naturally sweet, grilled charcoal peach/plum aroma. Great aftertaste and a very nice mouthfeel. Would definitely consider getting this one again. Brewed this one up in the xi ying for about 2 minutes. It goes on my shopping list. The man friend likes it too.
Organic a plus…
Again I am backlogging – This was a very nice pu-erh tea I had at lunch today. I believe this is the one that was 30 years old and I drank out of the gaiwan. Very dark, smoky rich flavor. I think I am getting tea fatigue right now. I like puerhs but I do not think they are worth the overly inflated price or all the hype. Perhaps I will change my mind someday. This was a great tea with our lunch of vegetarian spicy noodles and buns.
This is a tea I just had to try based on all the crappy reviews people wrote about it. ;-)
Now I can’t figure out if Steepster is just full of really snooty people or I am just not snooty enough? lol…
This is really not that bad. I kind of liked it… hee hee. Is it the power of suggestion? I really do feel more relaxed. I steeped this in the Ti xing teapot with around 180 water. I used 3 infusions of one minute each. This does not really taste like a typical oolong. I swear my tastebuds are tingling. It reminds me a little of a sheng. It also reminds me a little bit of Lipton tea. It does have a bit of an aftertaste that is kind of sharp and pungent, I assume this is part of what people are reacting to negatively here. Oh well. I kind of doubt I will get more but I might. It does give me a sort of pleasant goofy feeling.
