Pulled this one out from nicole this morning. I received a surprise care package from Tigress_Al in the mail the other day so my numbers are up a little. Need to try and get a few more sipdowns in so that i can keep up the good work. :) Still enjoying this one even if it’s a little oolongy this round.

Finishing off the last of this one before i split the last little bit across a few tea friends. I’ve enjoyed drinking this one, but not sure if i’d restock. it’s got a juicier profile versus the malty blacks that i like but it’s smooth . it’s on the lighter side so maybe a better afternoon tea. still, i’ve enjoyed it a bunch.

still drinking this one. Lots left. It’s not my favourite, but i haven’t yet figured out how i enjoy it best so i’m having fun trying out different parameters. Some days it’s meh. other days its really tasty and juicy haha

my notes on this one seem to have poofed, though i know i’ve had it before. long and the short of this is that it’s a really nice tea. It’s not a fruity sort of tea, nor an overly malty one. It sits somewhere in the middle with a roasty, caramel, burnt toast sort of feeling to it. A medium strength in brew…and something i ended up gulping through this morning in an effort to try and wake up! :)

I’ve had this a couple times now, though apparently not written a note about it. I had this yesterday and it was a really plesant cup. Jin Jun Mei’s have typically not been a preferred type for me – they’re often hit or miss, but this one isn’t bad. Middle of the road though, so nothing spectacular. Smooth brew, sort of a slight chocolate note going on…not really malty or anything like that. Better note next time i have it – will write while drinking :)

I had tried this earlier using my prefered moonlight 80C water temp. It was nice a little sweet, a little hay like, maybe some honey. Of the moonlight cakes I bought, this was my favorite.
conversation was happening today regarding the best way to steep moonlight and OMGsrsly said….. boiling water, flash steeps. Really? OK I never use boiling water and certainly not on a white tea, but I respect her opinion so I tried this tonight using her method. Wow, I was wrong. This method takes this tea to another level. It really brings out the honey notes, there is some subtle fruit notes in the earlier steeps. Later steeps and this is becoming more like a black. The changes in the steeps is more pronounced. I need to revisit some of the other moonlights in my collection.
Tea friends are the best, thank you so much for making me try this. :)

This got me thinking. I remember how much I loved my first moonlight and then some of the others paled in comparison. That’s because I first brewed it with boiling water! Then I was told to use lighter temperatures which I did when trying all the rest.

Morning brew let down…
This was like an oolong oiled up in a bit of salt and then given to me in a warm cup.

I got the same reaction. I chose it for this mornings tea, and it was kinda bland. There’s definitely some complexity, but I only got a roasted taste with hints of salt and butter. Nice mouth feel, but not that flavorful.

super hot here lately, though i think the heat has finally broken. Not drinking as much as normal, but still trying to keep on working on my older teas. I am almost through this one as i need to set aside a little for sharing :) I am still enjoying this one, though there’s no need to repurchase

i am enjoying this offering from dragon tea house. Ir’s not as rich as some of the other versions that i’ve tried but it’s a decent cup and one that i’ll enjoy finishing up.

someday i’ll try this gonfu style..for now, i’ve been drinking this as of late – western style and the brew has been exactly what i want. Smooth, malty, delicious.

Dexter

Thanks, is ok – I’m pretty sure I would like this and always looking for free shipping sources of good black tea. I just never look from DTH and I should. :)
