Yezi Tea

Recent Tasting Notes

55

Very, very grassy, and quite astringent. I followed the brewing instructions on Yezi teas to a T (hah, geddit). The first brew was a bit too strong for me but subsequent brews mellowed out a bit and it became more enjoyable. My experience with green tea is limited, but this is a solid tea. I’d probably enjoy something with a milder flavor.

Light oolong that is yellow in color and has the aroma of sweet flowers. The flavor is light and sweet with vegetal and floral notes with just a hint of orange at the end. The texture of this tea is very smooth. Definitely a tea I would drink again.

Day Four- Tea Pet’s log:

The sun intrigues me… I feel a strange need to stand outside in it for years until I grow taller. Loved ones keep trying to get my attention by calling my name. Apparently, I only respond when Jin Pin is uttered.

I brewed this tea in a method that is foreign to me, although, apparently not foreign in China. I placed about 3 tsp of leaves in the bottom of one of my stainless steel tumblers, then added water. Apparently, if I don’t drink the last 25% of the tea, this brewing method will work out swimmingly. For the next infusion, I just add more hot water on top of the 25% and it acts as a starting point for the brew… Well.. here goes noteang.

I don’t like this method… :( My poor Jin Pin…. You deserve better. You deserve to only be brewed in a gaiwan.

I ordered a sample of this from Yezi because apparently they do free samples. Anyway, looking forward to trying it. Not that you recommend it or would be interested in anyway. ;)

Tea Pet

Oh! That’s exciting! I hope that you enjoy it! What other samples did you get?!

Silver Needle Bai Hao Yin Zhen White Tea and Dragon Well Master Grade Long Jing Green Tea. I have no idea if I’m going to like these. I tend to like every green I’ve ever tried but the others will be an experience.

Tea Pet

Oh!! That’s great! The Silver Needle is absolutely amazing! And although, I haven’t tried the Master Grade Long Jing, I loved the High Grade. I will throw in some more green teas to your box. :)

AlexaK.

Oh, please don’t! I’m sure you’ve been far too generous already!

I know that I’m not supposed to drink green tea… but, I just… I just had to. I am a Long Jing fanatic. If I had to choose my favorite green teas it would be Genmaicha, Long Jing, and then Gyokuro. I used to drink at least one of them every day when I was younger. Thus, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try this one (Thanks to LiberTEAS!).

It is wonderful. Grassy, light, crisp, pure, subtle, slightly nutty. Very long length. The aroma is similar to fresh, clean grass in a pristine meadow. The liquid was a very pale yellow-green. It is everything you want in a good Long Jing.

Complete side note: My significant other brought me a vegan, gluten-free Earl Grey and Chocolate Chip cookie. (I hate him/love him for this.) And surprisingly it went well along with the third infusion of the Long Jing.

Hmm, tea and cookies! Yum!

Tea Pet

It was an amazing cookie… I felt so guilty though… I actually just ended up making it my dinner. :p

Backlog:

A top notch Oolong. Sweet and creamy! my first cup was so smooth and light, and subsequent infusions became more intensely flavored. Notes of flower, but not an overly floral tea.

The texture is silky and milky. The flavor is so delightful. This tea yielded lots of infusions, so take it through its paces!

Dear tea gods, this is amazing!

Upon first pouring the water into my new Lu Yao gaiwan (!!) to rinse the leaves, the aroma was so powerful! Almost indescribably powerful! My face was at least two and a half feet away from the gaiwan and the aroma reached me and hit me so hard with awe.
Upon first sip, I literally exclaimed: “It’s so sweet!”
And the color is an absolutely brilliant red. :)

I’ve had a migraine all day… but this, brewing a wonderful new tea in my beautiful new gaiwan… I couldn’t wish for anything more right now.

This is probably the last cup of tea before I leave for work… And it’s a really good one. There’s so many complex notes to this oolong: grassy, VERY grassy, a bit flowery, earthy. And it seems to head into the citrusy notes area but then it abruptly stops. Perhaps later infusions will bring out more tartness? There’s also this wonderful aftertaste I cannot describe well. I do like it a lot… Unfortunately, more infusions will have to wait until after work!
