106 Tasting Notes
This is one off my favorite black tea’s it fits for me personally on the same line then alot off assam tea’s. Strong full body but in stead off the malty tastes from assam tea’s this one got a sweet touch. I like drinking this in the morning because it wakes me up pretty good.
Usually my brew time for this tea is about 3min for the first cup and 5 for the second… both cups give a very dark brown liquor that smells like no other!
When i’m really into this one i brew sometimes a third cup, its a bit less in flavor tough it still tastes better then most bagged tea’s!
I received this flowering dragon eye last month with my subscription on jing tea. Very exited to try my first flowering tea!
Before infusing this green tea ball i notice a very strong flower smell probably the marigold or the amaranth giving that special scent.
The tea ball seems to be tight very well together, so its ready to pour boiling water over it. I’m a little bit surprised to use boiling water on green tea but its on the package label so we use it. When the infusion starts everything is going on at once, the ball floats on the top of the water and slowly starts to sink and unfurl revealing the yellow marigold flower, then the jasmine arch gets raised with the beautiful amaranth flower on top!
Have to say one off the most pretty tea’s i ever drank, its a bit sad to pour the tea into my cup because everything fall flat when the water is gone.
Anyway time to let this baby cool and start tasting!
The color of the brew turns out to be a golden green tint and looks very tastfull. My first sip i can clearly pick out the jasmine mixed in are different tastes but thats from the other 2 flowers in there. Very good taste not to overwhelming aroma’s. I’m happy with this, going to make some more infusions from the same bulb. Pretty sure the other brews are going to be good in taste to. So going to make a new note soon!
Here we go i had this one for 2 months in my kitchen but now its time to try it out. Over time i had a lot off green and white tea’s but never ever a Yellow… So its a first time for me and i’m very curious how its going to taste!
The dry leaf’s look a lot like most green’s but with the difference they got some yellowish spots and stains here and there. When dry it doesn’t really smell alot just a regular grassy tea smell. Brewing my first cup with 70°c water for about 2min30sec.
When pouring in this tea i notice almost no color, only when my cup is almost full i’m beginning to see a light green tint in my glass cup! I let it cool for a while because i enjoy my white tea usually when they are cooled down a lot, so doing the same with this one!
My first sip tastes soft very soft in taste and its sweet. You can really tell its sweeter and different then green tea. I did not expect this to be true because its so related to a green tea… This has to be one off the most sweet and fresh tea’s i had in a while and very light in taste. Going to enjoy this on the warm summer days ahead!
Ok second time i’m trying this, this time i got a feelings its more something i appreciate. Used almost double the amount off leafs from first time and lowered the temperature to 60°c. Its got alot more sappy almost hay like taste. A bit like dragon well but without the citrus/hazelnut notes. Its not bitter at all… just a refreshing cup off green tea.
I’m still not sure if this tea is for me personal worth the extra euro’s because this is a rather expensive green tea… lucky for me i won this sample on a facebook give away a while ago otherwise i probably wouldn’t have ordered it due to the higher price range.
I just had a first experiment with my pre rain anji bai cha from jing tea. The package said to brew with 60°c water but i was to late to put the kettle off so i decided to brew around 70°c…
First thing i notice is that this got a very pale color. When i’m sipping my cup i taste no bitterness and a light floral/vegitable notes. Have to say its a very light tasting green tea… maybe i’m brewing it really to hot!
Going to try this again later today or tomorrow with the correct temp like the package said. But for now this one is a bit to light in taste…
maybe anyone got some tips on how long and at what temp u guys/girls usually brew this type off tea! Leave a comment if so thanks in advance!
i already did recommend this rose tea to someone here on steepster because i was impressed by the taste off this one. Its got a very good keemun black tea base and the rose scent comes from whole rose flowers. It looks beautiful when u open the package with the dry leaf in it and the smell is just like a rose garden!
When brewing this for 3min it results in a great yellow/brownish colored cup off tea with a very strong rose smell to it.
Taste wise u get the good keemun combined with the sweet and maybe a bit sour taste off roses its incredible if you ask me! a good tea to relax in the evening even if blacks are usually breakfast tea’s…
