brewed this wrong in the beginning, but I got it right it was pretty good. I got a strong sweet cinnamon fragrance, like a cinnamon roll with a little icing, which translated over to the taste. the roast was lighter than I am used to, which may have helped the fragrance. overall this is a good value and good tea, but not mindblowing in any way.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Roasted, Sugarcane, Sweet
western brewed this.
this is a roasted white tea, which is something I’ve never heard of. it sounded good and is inexpensive so 50g made it into my jing tea shop order.
I like this better than fuding bai mu dan. this is a complex tea, with a heavy body and lingering aftertaste. it isn’t as sweet up front, but the typical sugary finish of bai mu dan presents itself in the aftertaste. it is as good as any white tea I’ve had, maybe even better, and at half the price!
can’t wait to try this cold brewed and gongfu
Flavors: Asparagus, Fruity, Heavy, Powdered sugar, Sugarcane
My first Lion Mt dragonwell and I am stunned. Literally zero bitterness, all sweetness and the most complex flavor profile of any green tea, it changed in my mouth like a good oolong. The taste started out like sweet peas then slightly creamy then crisp almost lemon/lime like. Later steepings revealed a asparagus after taste that was superb. Just when I thought green tea was boring and 1 dimensional the tea that was described to me as the “chinese gyokuro” came along. This is truly my new favorite tea and i am already anxious that it is only obtainable late april early may yearly.
Flavors: Asparagus, Peas
Tea of the morning I’ve unearthed from my stash pile…
I am happy that I slept through the night and I don’t remember getting up once! 9 weeks post injury, this is a major achievement for me. I credit the massage I got yesterday and sleeping with a teddy bear under my arm, lol. Let’s hope this is a trend that continues.
This is a delicious chinese red tea I described in my original tasting note, It’s still so good. I love the mellowness of this tea. Even steeping for 3 minutes Western style like I did this morning, I am detecting no bitterness at all, just very mellow and rich chocolate and caramel notes. Perhaps it’s time to think about placing another order with Jing, maybe when the 2014 teas are out.
This is not a sipdown. I realized I wanted something smokey with my dinner. It just seemed like it would add a nice dimension to the meal. Plus, I have this amazing box of teas from my swap with TeaExplorer, & I was dying to try one of them! So I’m trying this one! And before I say anything else, I want to say, “Thank you!”.
It’s quite tasty! Right now, I feel like the level of smoke is perfect on this cup. With some lapsangs, you have the BBQ thing going on, and the only thing you really get is lots of smoke. When I was a kid, we BBQed a lot, & no matter where I stood, the smoke was always in my face. My dad used to say, “Smoke follows Beauty.” :\
This is not one of THOSE teas. Sure, there’s smoke, & it’s at a realistic level, but there’s also a rich sweetness beneath that smoke, & I am truly loving this cup right now.
Tea of the morning here. I did not gong fu this beautiful tea because I was in a hurry, it is quite delicious steeped in a mug for 4 minutes Western style. I was impressed by the red tea sampler from Jing and would not hesitate to buy more from this company, their oolongs are also really good.
