This is a tasting note of a new #3.
i got a free sample of it along with the tin of original Classic Chinese. thank you so much for letting me try. Since i didnt have parameters, i think my way doesnt do a justice to this tea.
1/2 TBSP 185F 6 oz 3min
Dry leaves are long, thin and twisted. I love the smell of dry leaves. The brew is golden brown, its sweet dark chocolate, bread, toffee, nuts. very pleasant and refined. Somehow it reminds me Laoshan Black, but i didnt try LB long time, so maybe I’m wrong.
So, if original Classic Chinese is a bad boy, this version is Park Ave princess.
Now Joe you have to help me with the right parameters;)

The parameters: something I was just thinking about with teas :)
I like to be able to try a tea several different ways

I tend to do my own thing, unless the tea turns out epically awful the first time, then I either try the parameters or look for other advice.

i just have a feeling my temp was too low. And its a sample. i can play with it only one more time :(

yyz

Maybe a little:). I had to look it up. I still don’t get fareinheit, you would think it would stick in my head a little bit better the length of time I’ve been on this site!

I use boiling for black tea. Always.
What’s the difference between this and the old one? I have the old one.

boychik

they are absolutely different. i think i like the old one more…

boychik, the suits of Park Avenue are just not for you I guess. It’s interesting because the two teas taste very different, however, they’re made from the same leaves. The only difference is that the new #3 is just the bud and two leaves and the leaves are much more intact and not broken. The new one has a much smoother fruiter taste whereas the old #3 (new T1 tea bags) is much spicier and more earthy. I think boychik’s metaphors were spot on.
