1845 tasting notes

Our second pot of tea after Thanksgiving dinner, this is also thanks to Quiltguppy! :)

This is my daughter’s first oolong. Our Silky Green was buttery and sweet. This one was a nice contrast, so she won’t get the idea that teas are all alike. The aroma is roasty on top of floral, and there is a slight astringency at the end of the sip. I do detect the mineral quality mentioned in other reviews, something I enjoy in my puerhs. This is good, and honestly it took a full cup efore the astringency was really noticeable.

The second infusion has picked up a vanilla overtone and the astringency has decreased. This is a lovely, woodsy, nutty, and floral all in one tea. Thank you, QG!

I think she liked Silky Green best, but she liked it! She says the tea I give her doesn’t taste like tea and that is why she likes it. I told her it tastes exactly like tea and that food service tea bag crap she was drinking is what doesn’t! LOL!

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…
