100
drank Dog Brain Tribute by Tea Dynasty
69 tasting notes

This is first tea I rate at a 100 because it’s just that darn good.

Dry leaves are ranging from dark green to pale green color, snail like in form, very fuzzy, in fact the whole tin is covered in pollen like substance from it. The leaves look very gentle. Dry leaves smell fresh, little grassy and flowery.

Steeped it’s of very pale yellow color, it smells and tastes nutty and creamy and it’s very mellow. It’s a gentle green tea with no bitterness at all.

It was somewhat pricey, I can’t find any information on it on Google (seems like the name is just a literal translation from Chinese, maybe this sort goes by other name) and the fact that it’s so covered in mystery only makes it that much better.

That is certainly the most bizarre tea name I’ve ever seen! O.O

I asked about it in the store, the guy neglected to bring it out, claiming that it was too expensive. How much was it?

I got it absolutely randomly actually, I was tasting Dragonwell and I loved it so I wanted to pick up some green to go home with me.

The guy recommended I try this dog brain tribute tea. They didn’t even have it in a tin, he just opened a new bag of it (relatively small as I’ve seen the bag Tie Guan Yin came in and it was at least 3 times as big) but he did mention that it’s somewhat rare or something, and that they don’t get it often.

I don’t actually remember what the price was, but I remember that I had to get 25g as it was some big sum and I just wanted to taste it. I wanna say around $35/50g, hope it’s not too off.

I am a little dumbfounded that they didn’t tell you the price though, the guy that I always see there is VERY friendly and I can’t imagine him pulling off a stunt like this.

How did you learn about it? I never heard of it neither can I find it anywhere on Google, do you know if it goes by some other name?

actually, it was from your post that I heard about it. I just HAD to ask about the amazing tea that got a 100 rating on this site :)
I think the sales guy new that I was in a rush, and on a budget. Next time though, I will ask if I can buy a cup of it.
That is really expensive tea. One day, I will buy a bag!

@Indigobloom I stopped by Tea Dynasty yesterday and asked about the tea, it’s $30. And they do have it in stock. Ironically I just ran out of mine this morning, mixed it with T-Buds Dragonwell, not too bad of a mix actually heh.

I have so much tea in my cupboard… I can’t justify buying one so expensive. I can dream though!

Bio

I was always a huge fan of teas but my tastes changed constantly. Lately I am on the path of discovering Chinese teas, but not limiting myself to that. I am, however, favoring straight teas at this point.

I love pu-erh, oolongs are always a treat, learning about greens is delicious, absolutely neutral towards rooibos or herbals and black is always a yes. Incidentally any combination of the above is ok in a blended tea, which I like to have time to time.

« The first cup kisses away my thirst,
and my loneliness is quelled by the second.
The third gives insight worthy of ancient scrolls,
and the fourth exiles my troubles.
My body becomes lighter with the fifth,
and the sixth sends word from immortals.
But the seventh—oh the seventh cup—
if I drink you, a wind will hurry my wings
toward the sacred island. »
