85
drank Da Hong Pao by Harney & Sons
66 tasting notes

Finally digging into the Oolong that I got from my Select membership. I warmed up my tea cup and also did a quick brew before dumping it. I left my tea at the bottom of my cup cause I wanted to watch it grow and I’m super happy with the tea. I didn’t add too many tea leaves to my cup so it’s pretty subtle but I like the soft roasted hints and the slight sweet tones. I think I need to add more tea leaves to get that smoky flavor.

I just bought this last week. I gave it a higher score. I love the Fujian teas.

I bought their Da Hong Pao and liked it alot, but I’d have to really think about this tea before I posted a review. I’d probably give it an 80 to 85. :))

The Wuyi Cassia is real nice….

It’s always hard to score these teas! I just move it somewhere that seems sort of positive and apparently, it’s semi-low. Odd. But I agree, it deserves a bit higher of a score than the one I gave it. I’m just a rookie when it comes to scoring.

I usually get 4 good steeps from a decent Da Hong Pao. Try it with this tea, it seems to work pretty well. The second and third cups are always the best. :)
