Recent Tasting Notes

Just quick notes as I drank this whilst working this afternoon.

The Oolong is nicer than I was expecting if I’m honest, very buttery and toasted with light floral notes. I left it to cool mostly because I was busy working way and forgot about it but the flavours smoothed and if anything became more buttery and creamy. It has a natural sweet floralness which also carries well once cooled down.

I will definitely try this iced next time. :) No rating until I review it properly.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

That’s the last of it. So I’m going to brew the leaves again and again unil I can’t taste it an more (or forget and let the leaves go mouldy). One of my housemates is actually leaving soon to move to The South, and he loves it so it’s good that it has not run out until now. Pretty delicious – a really good Ti Kuan Yin… not that I have tried hundreds, but it’s the best one I’ve had

I can’t bring myself to carry on after the fourth steep. The first two tasted the same almost, the fourth and final one was more than water, but not a whole lot more, and I’m happy to throw it away after that. I suppose I could have brewed it more if I had not left almost a day between each brew. I don’t know how these things work though. Does a second steep taste any different if it is made an hour after the first steep compare to a second steep that is made after 12 hours?

The first time I’ve made my massive pot for ages but then I came in at 7.45 and have an evening ahead of sorting my bedroom and doing jobs, so I need a big pot. This is a gret one because it’s hard to treat it wrong. I try to put in water that’s just off boiling and not to put in many leaves, but it’ll taste good anyhow

This time 1.5 tsp lasted for 3 pots comfortably. I am not sure that it would have gone as far as a fourth pot but I didn’t try it so I’ll never know. It’s so good!

My friends Martin and Paul gave me this tea for my birthday and it’s incredible. I put in two teaspoons and it made 8 cups of tea (i.e. 4 brews of my two-cup pot) without any deterioration in taste at all. Incredible. And picked by monkeys. This tea excites me a lot
