Recent Tasting Notes

I was smitten today. This tea is like nothing I tried in my life.
4g 100ml 195F
Rinse/10/15/15/20/30 etc
Leaves are long. Maybe like an inch on average and some longer
Smells intoxicating. I’m very new to this type of tea so it’s hard to describe all the notes. Overall it’s like drinking semi sweet champaign .
So glad I ordered from JTS. Thank you apt for recommending

Smitten? Oh my.

apt

try it with 6-7g for 100ml, Dancongs are better with a bit more leaf. Glad you liked it, tell me how the AAA compares!

Ahh last 3g . hoarded for too long. It was a time to let go.

made it in my 60ml shiboridashi i love for tiny tastings
Leaves are thin and long like spider legs and so aromatic even though i have it for a couple years already.
The aroma of the brew is intoxicating. its like fruit bomb. Ive got pineapple, lychee and cinnamon. Spice is quite nice complements the fruit notes and make it more complex and interesting
Im not a huge fan of Dancong. Most of the time its floral (not my fav) and finicky too. its hard to nail the right temp and length of steeps. and it will vary even if its the same tea.

This tea is the solution for me. being processed as hongcha/black tea it is not as sensitive as regular dancong. it takes higher temps and longer steeps quite well without getting astringent or bitter.

Time to restock!

I got my order today. I was so excited because I got 3 tea packages after “starvation” mode.
This tea. It’s very complex,changing from one steep to another.
Gongfu method
4g 100 ml gaiwan 205F
10/15/20/20/30 etc
The leaves are midnight black, very thin and very long like Daddy long legs. Scale to the rescue.
First steep was pale yellow, longan or grapes, juicy and some raw nuts,maybe cashew?
Second steep was totally different. Smelled like brownie, tasted like brownie with some faint cherry note
Later steeps were more citrusy, like grapefruit, longan came back with more cherry note pronounced. Some steeps were kinda floral in Darjeeling way.
This tea was quite an experience. Rich, multifaceted , satisfying
Thank you apt for suggesting me Jing Tea Shop. I’m very excited to try new teas.

WOW
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

Sweet peas and creamy to crisp lemon/lime….then asparagus… Wow. This sounds fantastic. Absolutely fantastic.

oops guess this was a qing ming harvest (30th march) not pre-qing ming but yeah I was about to give up on greens now I finally found one complex enough to try steeping in my gaiwan.

Thanks Tea Explorer, if you’re still out there!
This is a sip down, and the interesting thing about this tea, this time around, is an aftertaste of lightly burnt popcorn. Strange, but true!

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.

Nicole

Our family always followed that up with “and Beauty was a horse.” :P

Űber rich for a brew that came from the same place as some of the pinnacle jasmine teas of china. I expected to pay
$’s for this but it was absolutely well worth the small batch to price rate. ༂

Backlogging and based partially on memory but mostly on my notes

Experience buying from Jing Tea Shop http://steepster.com/places/2780-jing-tea-shop-on-line

I bought a sample of this with an order from them during the late spring of 2011. I brewed it up a couple of times since then.

It looked like any quality Tie Guan Yin I had ever seen pictures of in that it had dark green leaves rolled in tight balls; it smelled fresh and vegetal.

I did six steepings starting out at 187F and 30" and used slightly hotter water and added 15" for each successive one.

Flavor: my notes say it was good through the fifth steeping, but no notes on the sixth (except that I did one).

I believe this was my first TGY (so no rating), thus watching the leaves slowly unfurl through each steeping was quite an experience for me.

The only notes about the wet leaf: “Almost no pieces; nice, full, large, army-green colored leaves with serrated edges”. That’s all I have for now. I still have some, so I hope to update this at some later time.One a final note, I am very slowly starting to appreciate the wonder that is Oolong Tea!
