293 Tasting Notes
Day #2. I brewed up one tablespoon in the one cup Yixing pot. Much better than last time. I think I have to add more leaves to achieve the taste I know this tea can deliver….
I gave this Wulung the cold water brew in the Mason jar. The result was a delicious nectar of the Gods….
After reading several notes about this tea I decided to brew it for 8 minutes with 1 teaspoon in a filtered cup. A very satisfying tea. Rich yet mellow. A very good afternoon or evening tea. I did not detect smoky flavors.
My first purchase from Zhi. I brewed up a pot with two spoonfuls and steeped for 4 minutes. I liked it but I think I should add more leaves and brew it for 5 minutes. I think it’s too soon to rate. My 2nd infusion is brewing now…. Ok, I should’nt be so shy with the tea leaves. Stay tuned for brew2… ps, the pot was a 4 cup Celestial Seasons Sleeytime pot. One note on the first infusion: The nose, it smelled like Christmas, PINE.
I cold brewed this one in a Mason jar. I feel you can really get the full flavor of a tea when it is brewed this way. The result was sublime….
I did 2 infusions and placed them in a gallon glass bottle at room temperature. I then put it in the fridge. The result is truly the nectar of the Gods!
The name says it all. It works….
I personally love the smokiness. I tried to give my Chinese co-worker some and she smelled and said no. She had never turned my tea away before!
