drank Tie Guan Yin by Thes de Chine
2 tasting notes

I brewed this tea using a teapot (95°C: 7’) and a gaiwan (95°C : ’20 – ’25 – ’40 – ’45).
It is one of the best Tie Guan Yin I have tasted until now. It has a mild roast sensation at first then a more fruity note kicks in to stay in your mouth for a while. Everyone I shared it with loved it from tea lovers to tea agnostics! It is a deliciously safe bet.

You can also try it at the boutique perfectly brewed!

The first infusion was too light.
Very nice Tie Guan Yin with a milky texture and a flowery taste.
I’ve tried this one at Thes de Chine directly the first time, and I cannot reach the same (very good) taste … yet :)

I drank it at Thes de Chine directly, in the tea tasting room. 2 infusions in a medium-sized teapot (40/50 cl I’d say). The first was a bit light to my taste, the second was very good.
A nice tea with a nutty/ripe fruit taste. A little citrus after taste.

Preparation
Boiling

Nice Pu Er.
I’ve tried it in a big teapot and in gong fu cha in a small teapot (after rinsing in both cases), it was nice without any off taste and without anything out of normal.
Good every day Pu Er

Brewed in a small teapot : 20 cl – 35’’, 35’’, 45’’, 60’’, 1’30’’
I also tried it in a zhong : 10 cl – 25’’ – 30’’ – 45’’ – 60’’ – 1’30’’ – 2’30’’
and a big teapot : 70cl – 5’

I waited this new batch for 6 months now :)
Well, I was expecting more honey and less freshness from this tea.
It is a good, and I can feel/smell a taste of honey that I can bring strong enough either in gong fu cha or in a big teapot.
The tea has a taste of fruit and freshness, not really like green tea, more like a white one. Medium after taste of fruit/honey. Not like anything I’ve tried before.
I will let the leaves at rest for a little bit and try it again with my little teapot of 10 cl, maybe the honey taste will be stronger.

Brewed in a small teapot (20cl) at 90°C : 30 – 35 – 45 – 1’00.
I tried to reduce the time of the first two infusions to lessen the roast taste and increase the fruity taste. It works but the roasted taste remains.

The taste of jasmine is stronger than before.
The flower scent fill the mouth. Light after taste, this tea just miss a strong one.
It’s a shame to sell such a good tea at this price :) I will buy some more soon.

Brewed at 80°C.
I tried to do it in a small teapot instead of a zhong. I liked the taste better, it was more “round” I think.
Ok for a tea at this price.

I’ve bought a smaller gong fu cha teapot and … the tea tastes even better.

Very good Dan Cong with a strong fruity after taste. After the last brew, the after taste stayed in my mouth for a long time.
