drank Wenshan Baozhong by Harney & Sons
1813 tasting notes

So glad I bought this one! The scent is delightful – I drank this from a gaiwan and I think I sniffed the lid as often as I sipped the tea. The aroma is light and lovely gardenia, so worth taking the time to slow down and appreciate this light, floral aroma! The taste is very creamy, buttery, and lightly vegetal. I detect the flowers as a light aftertaste – it isn’t a strong floral taste to me, just floral in the aroma. Some teas will irritate my reflux. Not this one. Smooth and lovely. Will try resteeping this one and learn more about this “lovely seriousness” Harney and Sons talks about!

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four 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.

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