335 Tasting Notes

I enjoyed this sample for 2 days.
I love it. First of all id like to report that i brew sheng with boiling water. yes. its much better because it doesnt taste like mellow smooth green tea anymore. i dont want mellow green tea, i want something special, some punch. it wasnt bitter either because thats the tea or maybe my taste buds changed. either way im happy sheng drinker.
First several steeps were amazing. what would you say to potato chips flavor but without grease? sweet, slightly bitter, delicious. some slight tobacco. those flavors of chips and tobacco were very interesting and made me hungry. Burger would be the best but i had only chicken in my fridge. anyway its too late for after midnight snack. Time to go to bed before i get some other food cravings.

I’m so glad you did this note, I was looking at this last night and thinking about it.

Nice to hear other people are creative with their sheng brewing. I’ve never done mine at boiling but I do prefer a longer steep most of the time ;)

Sounds wonderful.

Oh, I just love this one! Very rich and leathery…

re the leather word, I went to look at my tasting note for this tea – see what I said about it, and I’ve never written one. I don’t think I’ve had this one? Is that possible? (it’s not in my cupboard, and I’ve never logged it…weird) Really happy that you both love it. :))

Steepster eats my notes sometimes. but do you actually have it?

TheTeaFairy

That’s what Phatty cake is made of dexter…I’ll put some in your box.

Dexter

I"m actually really confused. I don’t actually have any right now, but I don’t think it’s possible that I’ve never tried this. I went looking for a tasting note and couldn’t find any indication that this has ever been in my cupboard. Weird. Fairy it’s fine, you really don’t have to. I’m just really confused….

boychik

Dexter, i think you should try it. 1 tablespoon won’t ruin your numbers

Dexter

It’s not the 1 tbsp it’s the “I’ll put it in your box” that concerns me. :))

TheTeaFairy

Haha! The box is almost empty, don’t you worry ;-)

Dexter

LOL ok. I have some stuff here for you, but was going to wait and include it with the YS once it gets here. :))

Lovely Stephanie sent me a sample. I tried it 3 ways
First – plain. Robust and smooth, some florals and malt. Perfect breakfast tea , not on empty stomach. Egg and cheese on a crossaint.
Second- with condensed milk. While it was yummy I probably overdid it. Because when it cooled became too sweet for my taste. I’m partial to condensed milk and can eat it right out the can. Gross, right?
Third – splash of milk and maple syrup. Dessert in a cup. Let me just say this tea was gorgeous chocolaty color. Not every tea takes milk well. Sometimes it looks murky and disgusting . Not this tea. Fabuloso with milk. Maple syrup just tiny bit rounded out florals and malt.
To conclude, no additions as a breakfast tea and milk + maple syrup as afternoon
I resteep it @5min. Was very satisfying cup, almost like original

Preparation
Boiling 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

No such thing as overdoing it on condensed milk! And I think everyone could eat it out of the can with a spoon, they just don’t admit it. ;)

mmmm not me! lol

what a lovely name…

Stephanie

My husband makes a chai mix to add to straight black tea out of sweetened condensed milk. So, you adding it to tea makes perfect sense in my book! Glad you enjoyed :)

Delicious. Lingering aftertaste long after finish my tea.
