7 Tasting Notes
I wish this Pu Erh would also be a perfume… The liquor has an amazing arrange bright color and the smell out of the tea pot is strong masculine made of leather and camphor oil and slightly floral. No astringency in the liquor and an amazing journey through the 8+ steeps. It is going interesting to see its evolution through the year!
Beautiful matcha with long after taste. It has a lot of umami. It has no astringency and develops some sweet nutty notes. It is a rich tea. I prepare it more on the thick side almost like a delicate patisserie!
This is a great yellow tea. It is bold and complex, very buttery and it develops some quiet peppery notes during additional steeping. The infusion is perfectly clear and intensely yellow.
This is a really good every day green tea. It is sweet and light perfect for a hot day but has a hint of astringency at the end that is really pleasant. It supported easily 4 steeps. I prepared it with a gaiwan full of tea with a slightly warmer water than I use to for green teas. it is also a good quality/price tea.
