drank Wenshan Baozhong by Harney & Sons
1825 tasting notes

Sip down! If you can call a forty ounce pot a sip down, that is.

I have all the young folks at my house again for the weekend, so five people between the ages of 14 to 22. We did yoga together this morning and I made a huge pot of this and put my tetsubin on a warmer so we could all enjoy it all morning long. Then the young folks did Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred while I cooked! I am glad I had the cooking as an excuse because it sounded like that workout would have shredded me.

Maybe it is because this is old, but I am not getting tons of floral notes from this. Holding it out to each of the kids to sniff, I got “vegetal”, “fresh cut grass mixed with woods”, and “fresh cut grass with honeysuckle.” What I taste is a little vegetal, lots of walnut. This was tasty!

I will be repurposing the tin to hold my remaining loose leaf Tower of London by removing the clear printed name label on the gold label and replacing it with a computer printed clear return address label so it blends nicely on the tea shelf. Yes, that is a bit OCD, but my house is pretty messy, really. :D

Good Good…train the kids! Love to get the kids trained to discribe what they smell and taste, besides the use of English is fading like a vapor!

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
