1641 Tasting Notes
So I think i was afraid of steeping this because it requires slightly more effort than steeping at boiling water, as this sample has sat around for months! Sorry VariaTEA! :O
But there was nothing to be afraid of and this tea is nice and fruity and slightly sweet and very nice on a cool summer day like today. So thank you- I’m happy I got to try it!
Thank you again Green Terrace for this sample! I really enjoyd the Li Shan Black, but this one just blows that one away IMO. It’s bright and sweet, and has a honeyed sweetness that lingers on your tongue. Surprisingly, I’m also getting floral notes, like in a lighter oolong. And peach?
Also, as it cools, the honey notes become even more apparent. Mind = blown.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to review this! It was my pleasure. :) Would I pay $23.50 for 100g of this? Yes. Yes I would.
Thanks JustJames for sending this along to me. It was a delicious tea that I enjoyed (216)!
I taste delicious maltiness, and cinnamon and fresh air. I see it’s from the Sun Moon Lake region and it makes me think of all those teas from TTC that I’ve been sampling and I suddenly regret not tasting them closer enough to really compare the two. But, ah well. That’s how it goes. So many delicious teas – I’ll never be able to keep them straight so I will just savour each one as I get to it.
Thank you Brenden for including this sample in my last order. It sounded so good that I had to drink it immediately. Unfortunately, I finished both cups of this a few hours ago so I don’t remember much, but I feel like I tasted spices and sweet potato and warm baked bread. It was delicious and I enjoyed each steep.
I might grab an oz for my next order just to get a better feel for it!
Oh, wow! I went all day without tea because we went on a road trip and I was plannig to drink all the double-doubles from Timmies, and then I only ended up with one.
And it’s 10pm and this is my first cup of the day and I’m not at all upset I had to wait so long because I AM appreciating the heck out of this right now. It’s dark and rich, and maybe just a little oaky. I detect spice and chocolate notes and more. It has a slightly thicker mouthfeel that gives me ALL THE TASTES.
It’s delicious Thanks Sil!(219)
