Pan Xiang (磐香)
Recent Tasting Notes
For $13NZD for 75g, I’d say this is a pretty average cup of tea.
The colour of the brewed liquid is a pretty standard yellow-green. Not much more to say about it.
The leaves themselves are not particularly uniform: some are broken up into smaller parts, some are soft and smooth while others are rigid and tough. Leaves varied in length from approx. 10mm~20mm, and there were perhaps 2 or 3 leaf-with-bud-attached surprises.
The Aroma is a very crisp, almost sharp grassiness, and I was happy to note that it was reflected well by the taste, which was also a sharp grassiness.
There wasn’t much depth, if any: the flavour lingering on the tongue for only a few seconds.
Overall this was an underwhelming cup of tea, but it was still enjoyable for what it was.
