*My first tea addition so if I make any mistake plz correct me!

One amazing organic tea I tried at a small amount(~20gr) from zen8tea.
The leaves were mixed in oxidation and small holes were noticeable, because of a small small leaf hopper insect(maybe like OB?), as zen8tea explained to me in a msg.

It’s rolled like an oolong and I used for brewing enough just to cover the bottom of the gaiwan. The water was 95C most of the times and steep time was 45s+15 every time.

From what I rememberm because I have none left now:
The brew was nice amber color. The fragrance was intense, sweet, ripe flowers(if that makes any sense…). Taste was sweet and soooo smooth, the brew was quite full bodied regardless the little brew time. Aftertaste was lingering for quite a while, a beautiful reminiscence of this fragrant tea.

I really miss this tea now that I don’t have any…
I don’t really know a way to excuse my rating, is there a certain rule like
20 for looks, 20 fragrance, 20 taste, 20 aftertaste, 20 special?

The only rules about how to award points to a tea is the rules you decide for yourself. :) Some people just rates it depending on how they feel that day. Others have deviced a scale of intervals to help them decide how many points a given tea should have.
It’s entirely up to you to decide how it works best for you.

Cheers, thx for the info about the rating. I think it always helps to have a somewhat…objective way to rate anything, from homebrew to tea…

Love Taiwanese and Chinese tea.
I’m living in Greece, attending university studying Electrical and Computer engineering. Loving tea and drinking like 2 lt every day.

I usually brew my teas like 15 times each though at the end they are just water…because of low budget xD

Got 1 gaiwan that was a gift and 5 cups. Now 4, last night my cat broke one :(
