21 Tasting Notes

I’ve been drinking this tea quite a bit lately, almost to the exclusion of everything else — even my usual pu-erh. I’m particularly impressed with its re-steepability and its ability to take a really long steeping to produce a strong, fragrant cup without bitterness.

Two cups, steeped relatively long, for sipping while sitting in the sun in the backyard while taking a break from work. Working at home is just the thing.

Another round of tie guan yin after cinnamon braised pork and sweet potatoes. Both excellent.

Two very large cups after a large dinner of home-made mah-po tofu with ground pork while watching a Shaw Brothers movie.

Drank this after dinner instead of the usual tie guan yin. Not sure why, but it suited nicely — especially since there’s a scene in the novel I was reading about drinking a darkish reddish tea and telling pirate stories.

A lazy spring afternoon drinking tea and reading a volume of T.H. White’s short stories. Four or five steepings, the third and fourth very rich.

Tea and working in the garden, transplanting this and that, digging here and there. Then more tea.

Two more cups after dinner — this time from the new batch. Yep, my tea order arrived yesterday and all is well.

Only two cups of tie guan yin last night — this is the last of it until my next shipment from Seven Cups arrives. Hope it’s today.

Today my custom pu-erh/lapsang blend fortified us as we worked in the garden, transplanting and dividing perennials and creating a new 10×50 foot bed full of daisies, monarda, salvia, lilies, and hostas. We worked for an hour, drank a cup, worked for another hour, drank another cup — until we were done.
