21 Tasting Notes

Two cups of silk tie guan yin after dinner (pasta with walnut garlic sauce) while watching Wong Kar Wai’s magisterial Ashes of Time Redux.

Four or five steepings of this was all that saved me from going over the deep edge yesterday while attempting — and failing — to get any work done while working at home.

For some unknown reason, we drank this after dinner last night. It didn’t have the same relaxing and digestive effect that the silk tie guan yin did. Must remember to stick with the oolongs after dinner and leave the heavily fermented yunnanese teas for the morning and afternoon.

My usual three cups of tie guan yin after dinner last night, sorely needed considering the sauerkraut pizza we ate.

I drank this tea this morning — and thought I’d just continue on throughout the day with the same tea (thought not with the same batch of leaves). The supply is running low; time to order more.

This is quickly becoming one of my favorite morning teas, though I’m not sure that it will ever displace my lapsang/pu-erh custom blend.

We drink 2-3 cups of tie guan yin oolong just about every night after dinner. It’s the perfect post-prandial tea, being light, aromatic, and very good for the digestion in the bargain.

Rich and deep and capable of some very long steepings, though I usually only let it go for 45-60 seconds, preferring to keep it light and full on the tongue.

Lately I’ve been drinking this as part of a lapsang/pu-erh blend, but today I decided to take it on it’s own. Six infusions from 1-4 minutes long, each yielding a fine, smoky tea that one feels the need to inhale deeply for several minutes before even drinking.

This isn’t usually a tea I drink in the morning, but it seemed just the right thing today. Excellent as always.
