512 Tasting Notes

from the Sheng and Shou TTB

I did not follow the directions from the website. I didn’t even think to look until after I was almost done with this tea. I went for short and sweet.

It’s got nice flavor. I enjoyed it. It just didn’t last nearly as long as I would have hoped it would. Oh well.

I also apparently didn’t like this as much as everyone else reviewing it did. It was nice, but I’ve had way better shou.

Preparation
5 g 3 OZ / 90 ML

Thank you Wymm Tea for sending me your samples.

This tea is really delicious. The first few infusions were a little bit bitter, but not in a bad way. Then the tea turned really sweet. Not really floral, but reminded me of floral. Definitely that kind of hay flavor though.

I really enjoyed this one.

It’s been a while since I had this one. I had forgotten how much I like it. In fact, I think I like it more than I used to.

I had this over the weekend, one of the teas I brought with me to robots. Then I had this one again yesterday and today. I couldn’t taste anything at all yesterday, but somehow the aroma of this one got through my horribly stuffed nose. Really. Today, not tasting much of anything, I can actually taste this tea. Wow.

And now, I’m going to go back to sleep. Another nap is in order for me.

glad it wasn’t wasted on inability to taste it. Hopefully that means you’re getting better!

Last night I got soooo little sleep. Maybe 2 hours.

I’m exhausted. And robotics competition season starts tonight. I’m going to be at our week 1 event with a bunch of high school kids until about 10:30 tonight. Not a good day to be without sleep.

So I figured guayusa would be a good idea to start the day, maybe give me some energy?

Yes, this tea does give me energy. And it tastes so yummy. Love the lemony goodness. If only this energy would last until late tonight, but I know it won’t. I may have to have more…..

Good aroma, from the moment I put the dry leaves into the warmed gaiwan, to the last sip of the last infusion.

The first infusions were really rich and strong. A bit woody, but smooth.

It didn’t last as long as I wanted.

It’s at a good price, though, so I might get it in the future….other than I have a lot of pu right now.

I liked this one quite a bit. I was hoping for a little more floral, but it was still nice. Of course, I accidentally threw away my notes in the kitchen. I’m not going to go back to try to get them, so oh well.

I prefer ones with lots of florals too

I decided to do a shou session with my new teapot, and picked this one out of the pile. It was the first shou I found.

Good beginner tea, but nothing outstanding. It didn’t last long.

Sorry, my brain is pretty much dead today. It’s been a long week. Now I have a sinus headache. I would like a nap, and instead I’m stuck at work.

But this tea is nice. Really nice.

I haven’t been drinking my white teas much lately. I don’t know why. This is a really great tea, so I’m glad I grabbed it this morning and brought it with me to work. I got this a little while back and just finally opened it. (It is still available on the website, so I recommend you get some.)

My little notes I jotted down:

fuzzies!
sweet
kinda hay
the bit of aroma I’m getting is beautiful (I’m got a bit of a stuffy nose to go with sinus headache)
love the color of the leaves while steeping

Beautiful fuzzies!!

Cheri

I love fuzzy tea

DeliriumsFrogs

Me, too. You’d almost think it would be a turn off, since it’s furry (hair type associations, or something)… but with tea it’s just so gorgeous. I don’t want my food fuzzy, but I’ll take fuzzy tea any day. lol

Cheri

Exactly!!!!! I don’t know what it is. It looks so soft…and it seems to add something to the tea flavor.

I’m really happy to read you like this tea Cheri. Needless to say, it’s not a common tea and its taste and aroma are as unique as the leaves! So, I wasn’t sure how people would respond to it. Cheers!

Bio

Still relatively new to drinking teas, or so I feel, even though I’ve been at it for several months now.

I’m drinking more and more of different varieties of tea.

It’s been a few months that I’ve been on here. I’ve expanded from greens and flavored teas to now I’m all about the oolongs and some unflavored blacks. I’m mostly drinking unflavored teas now, but there are a few of those flavored ones that have a special place in my heart.

Pu-erh is also something I’ve recently found that I enjoy.

I have four kitties and a spouse.
