310 Tasting Notes

Cup from last night. Made it latte style with tiny bit of maple syrup. While it was good I probably had craved something else. If only I knew…

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Hate when that happens

Right. Also my water is different now since I’m in PA. Nothing beats NYC tap water.

Conspiracy theory?

This is a sample I got with Zen Tea Life sale.
There is nothing I can add to looseTman review. He nailed it perfectly. Some plum, some wine, a little of tobacco, smokiness is subtle.
This tea is completely different fr Spring Keemun by A&D or Pine Keemun by Wispering Pines.
Very nice afternoon cup. I think I love my Yunnan blacks more. But it’s like comparing apples and oranges. Still want to try Teavivre’s offerings to make up my mind. No rating since I’m exploring .

The reason Steepster is so incredibly awesome is that it is populated by awesome people!

It’s delicious . Smells like cantaloupe / honeydew. True taste. Very nice on a hot day . Resteep was very good as well. No sugar for me but I think it would make it even more delicious. I think I’m going to enjoy it this summer;)

Flavors: Cantaloupe, Honeydew

Stephanie

Sounds summery!

Generous sample from Terri HarpLady – thank you so much
I love Yunnan Sourcing blacks and this one is no exception.
Gongfu method
5g 130 ml gaiwan 205F
Rinse/15/20/30/45 sec etc
Leaves like black needles with gold tips. I suggest to use scale not to underleaf it
Golden amber brew, dark chocolate, honey, malt. So rich and satisfying . It will keep me busy for numerous steeps.
Thank you so much Terri, it’s awesome tea

TeaTiff inspired me to try this tea. It’s perfect for a hot muggy morning. I cannot start my day with iced tea. It should be hot and black.
Steeped according to WP parameters 1/2 tbsp 200F 8 oz 3min
Resteep was equally good at 5 min
This tea is beautiful amber color. It is light bodied, sweet like faint honey, some pine notes which are also light. It is not smokey at all for me. I wouldn’t mind some smoke but I know many ppl hate smoky teas. So no fear. I also detected some florals but again not like floral oolongs. Everything is delicate , nice and smooth.
I have to admit Im not Keemun expert, just had a couple besides blends so I won’t rate it.
But Im happy that I picked an oz and once I run out of it I will restock.

Cheri

You make this tea sound delicious. I think it’s one I would like to try, but probably I wouldn’t drink it often enough to order it. Hmmm…I should look if I can get this in the sample size……

mj

You can! I just ordered this one in a sample pack. WP teas has a sample pack of three teas for $5. Totally worth it

Cheri

That’s how I started my addiction to WP teas.

mj

Um yeah. I have already ordered a sample pack once before. So, in addition to the second sample pack, I also bought some Golden Orchid and Ailaoshan Black

TheTeaFairy

Yep, this one will make it to my next order..

MzPriss

Mine too

Super generous sample from Terri HarpLady – thank you
3G 130 ml gaiwan 212F
Rinse/30/45/45/1min etc
Leaves are black and unruly so I used scale to not underleaf
It’s malty with muscatel and stone fruit notes kinda like Second Flush Darjeeling but with Taiwanese notes as well. Some unmistakable Taiwanese sweetness. Some dryness in aftertaste but not unpleasant . I really liked this tea as much as I like good SF Darj
Thank you Terri for the opportunity to try. It’s a winner

Preparation
Boiling 0 min, 15 sec 3 g 4 OZ / 130 ML

You show those unruly leaves who’s boss! :P This sounds tasty, I may need to start in on Taiwanese blacks soon…

boychik

Oh I love Taiwanese blacks. I didn’t try many, mostly TTC. I just want to narrow them down. Can’t have all of them unfortunately :( my hubby keeps reminding me that we are on a budget. It’s not gentle reminder anymore… And I just placed Mandala order last night.

Cameron B.

My boyfriend encourages me, which is even worse! Lol.

Nicole

That sounds really good.
