450 Tasting Notes
Generous sample came from CharlotteZero – thank you
It is nice cup of tea filled with chocolate notes. Perfect for breakfast. There is some slight sour bread notes I pick up. Like at the end of the sip. I still prefer Teavivre Bailin and Joseph Wesley
Flavors: Baked Bread, Chocolate
it is truly Spring in a cup. pale green, sweet nutty and so refreshing. like sugar peas
165F 1tsp 8oz could be brewed many times. Steeped only for 1min. As cools doesnt get bitter.
i’m not green tea person but I love it.
Flavors: Nuts, Peas
I got it yesterday from YS US site. It took only 4 days. I’m still awaiting my order fr China which I placed a month ago. Sigh
Anyway this tea is awesome. Never thought, just gave it a shot. The brew is deep red. Wet leaves smell of prunes. The brew tastes like prunes and some leather. It’s smooth and creamy. Yum. I think I should get more of it.
2 rinses 5/10/15/30 etc
Flavors: Cream, Leather, Stonefruits
This is a sample I got some time ago. Never opened. Jasmine just not my thing. I wanted to try to prove myself I’m wrong. The leaves are gorgeous silvery green long and unruly. Brewed in gaiwan 1 tbsp 180 ml 175F. Maybe 5 sec steeps. It is sweet, jasmine is nice and not overdone. While i appreciate the quality of this tea, it is not for me
This tea came to me from CharlotteZero – thank you!
Dry it is so beautiful. Pure gold buds. i love gold everything! Haha
Seriously gold not a speck of black or silver,or green. used 2 tbsp for 150ml gaiwan
rinse/15/30/45/1min/3min/5min/10min/ etc. this tea is so giving, i still believe there is something left. i might coldbrew it overnight,just to see what happen after so many steeps. it is honey and malt. pretty thick brew. in some steeps i’ve noticed walnuts.
it is complex tea and its hard for me to pin point all the flavors.
Thank you CharlotteZero for giving me a chance to try it. i enjoyed it a lot.
Flavors: Honey, Malt, Nuts
