309 Tasting Notes
This is my last sample from GTT.
I love it . Super tasty
4g 100 ml gaiwan 200F
This tea is so flavorful, smell is amazing. Plums, longan, honey and chestnut( I think) or some kind of other nuts(?)
Delicious. Lingering aftertaste long after finish my tea.
I am so glad being able to try, thank you so much Green Terrace Tea.
Another sample from Terri HarpLady – thank you
5g 100ml gaiwan 200F
Thick waivy black leaves. Nice deep flavor. It’s not that sweetness that I associate with Taiwanese blacks. It has more Assam profile. While it’s not my favorite, I’m very happy that I tried it.
Thank you Terri !
Sample from the Terri ‘s box – awesome never ending .
4g 100ml gaiwan 205F
Leaves are long twisted black and some gold. Smells heavenly. This tea is not as heavy sweet as others from YS. Nevertheless I like it. It’s different. Malty, nutty, not sweet, but there is sweetness in aftertaste. Some slight astringency but not unpleasant.
Thank you so much Terri for such a great variety of teas you supplied me with.
Free sample from Green Terrace – thank you.

Taiwanese teas are perfect for gongfu method. Lots of steeps, some flavors show up and disappear in next steep.
This tea is flavorful and malty. Apricots, plums, cherries and nuts detected. Some steeps I combined in one cup. I enjoyed sipping this tea while my kids had swim meet.
Thank you so much Green Terrace for letting me try this tea. It was fun.

I received my samples yesterday. They are very generous. So exciting.
Prepared gongfu method
4g 100 ml gaiwan 190F
Rinse/10/10/15/20/30/45/60 sec etc
I love Taiwanese teas, they are so resilient and perfect gongfu style .
The color of the brew changed from pale yellow to yellow-orange. Smells fruity and nutty.
I’ve noticed longan fruit, apricots and chestnuts. It’s slightly malty, some honey and some spice at the end of the sip. I have to admit that some sips I combined in one cup, but tasted all of them before combining. Now I’m thinking maybe I need to use more leaves. I want it bolder but not bitter.
Thanks Green Terrace for sending a huge sample to try multiple ways. Always a plus in my book.
This is a free sample with the recent purchase – thank you Mandala tea
I brew the whole sample of 9g since I know nuggets require more than leaves or chunks of puerh.
9g 100 ml 212F
Rinse/pause /20/20/30/45 etc
The brew is thick dark red- brown , clear. It’s sweet with leather and stone fruits flavor. Yum. I love this tea, it’s my favorite notes.
Thank you so much Garret for the opportunity to try this new tea. It goes on my wish list!
