drank Pi Lo Chun by Adagio Teas
174 tasting notes

This reminds me of gunpowder, but not as strong. It’s slightly smokey and vegetal with some oceanic saltiness to it, like seaweed. It’s very interesting how the smokiness blends well with the salty vegetal notes. It’s not one I would have guessed I would’ve liked and while I probably won’t keep it in my permanent stash I am glad I tried it. It is very good, a nice lighter alternative to Gunpowder.

Bio

I’m an avid tea drinker, it’s what I drink all day and why I’m here. I don’t sweeten my teas except for the occasional iced tea or cold-brewed tea. I typically brew my teas with a brew basket in a 12 oz cup. If I brew another way I will always note it.

Dislikes: black teas, milk flavored oolongs, hibiscus, red rooibos, licorice, dessert teas, mate, guayusa.

Loves: straight teas, especially Chinese green teas, sencha, jasmine, dan congs, mint, coconut.

My ratings are based mostly on the smiley faces. If a tea is of good quality but not to my taste preference I try not to rate it because I think that is unfair.

I drink a lot of the same teas and will not record every time I drink them. I log them the first time I try them and then again if I did something different and/or got different results.

I also try to keep my cupboard updated to what I actually have for those that wish to swap, although some of them are merely samples.
