Recent Tasting Notes


I’ve ordered tea ware twice from Music City Tea and each time they sent a nice sample of this Big Red Robe dark Oolong. It is a very toasty, roasty rich yet clean tasting tea and in a Gawain i got at least 5 steeps using 3.5 grams. I’ve since ordered red robe tea from a couple other vendors and will have to see how it compares. I increased steep time as i passed the 2nd steep.

I love this little tea tray. It’s the perfect size for on my desk at the office, and holds my gaiwan and a cup. It catches my drips and sloshes. Easy clean up.


I originally was just going to get the tray:

But I wound up with a set:

It really is perfect for my desk, fitting exactly in the space I had for one.


That is so cute! They have some really nice teaware.


Quick turnaround on orders, too. I was impressed.

drank Genmaicha by Music City Tea
517 tasting notes

I had this last night. It’s been a while since I’ve had genmaicha, which is one of my favorites.

First, let me admit that I ordered this tea to get free shipping and because I could get it in a little tin for $5. I got a pretty decent amount of tea in the little tin.

The leaves are a little more broken than I like in my tea, but not too bad. But then I oversteeped it on the first infusion. The combination of the two added just a little bitterness, but not nearly as bad as I expected for the oversteep. The rice is really nice and adds a great flavor.

Second infusion was really quick, and I paid more attention. Perfect!

drank Big Red Robe by Music City Tea
49 tasting notes

I previously posted under “little red robe.” I’m not entirely sure whether the sample I received was big or little red robe, but I bought 3 oz of this one. It’s equally as delicious as the sample….
I tried this in my newly seasoned yixing pot, and it was delicious for 3 steeps. I’m not sure how much longer it could go.
It’s lovely with a light malt flavor, toasty and smooth. The liquid is light amber. It’s a nice morning tea.

I received this sample from Jenny at Music City Teas with my little gaiwan set. She said it is from her tea farm in China. Because it was labeled in Chinese, I didn’t know what it was until after I drank it. I loved it so much that I messaged her right away and asked about it. She called it Big Red Robe, but I’m pretty sure this is the same tea that Lee reviewed here previously.

I got this sample with a bamboo tea tray that I purchased.
It is their house tea and it is a good Red Robe Oolong. It has all the roasty, creamy notes of Da Hong Pao but not any sweetness.
Made a good afternoon pick me up today!!
