199 Tasting Notes

Two cups. Still a wonderful tea. I’m trying to run it down so I can justify buying some of the Yunnan Gold First Grade Tea from First Class Teas… it sounds incredible

My housemates were keen to have this again. Once you get someone onto a good thing, they don’t like to let it go! And it IS a good thing

Had 3 cups of this today. I thought I’d try it on some friends, because it’s a great tea for any people who want to try something interesting but still want a “normal” black tea that you can have milk with. They loved it, so we kept topping up the pot!

Opening the packet, the smell was not so grassy, but it almost reminded me of oolong. The leaves as well are blue-grey. I was expecting a fluorescent green colour because I have just been drinking sencha, but it has th colour of honey and the smell of the brew is sweet too. I could eat some lemon cake with this for sure. After all that, the taste was a little disappointing. Or at least, not quite what I expected. I’ll have to drink it again to decide what I thnk

The second steep was good as well, but not as strong as the first one. I don’t really know what to expect, but this is prefectly pleasant after a second steep. I didn’t try a third for fear of it being hot water with no flavour whatsoever

This was incredible. A real change from all the gunpowder green tea I have had so much recently. It was strong and a little grassy and not at all bitter. After all the logs on here talking about multiple steeps, I will save the leaves for another steep or two tomorrow – can’t wait!

This was a good way to start my saturday, but I always end up with some tea dust at the bottom of the mug because my strainer isn’t fine enough to cope!

I first bought this from First Class Teas but this time I bought it from Aurora. It’s a fantastic black tea with a really interesting flavour and it doesn’t need milk at all

I have this quite regularly at home as a standard black tea. It’s pretty good really, and my housemate Paul was pleased because I brewed it good and strong

Bio

I moved from the UK to Australia in 2015. I’ve had a fascination with tea since university, and like to try lots of different types. My preference is for real tea over other infusions: green tea, oolong and black, including flavoured varieties. I love encouraging people to try new teas. I also play the trombone.
Ratings:
>90: Some of the best I’ve had so far.
80-90: I love this tea, likely to buy again
70-80: Good tea. Most tea in my cupboard is in this category because it’s fine to drink it all day!
50-70: I’d drink it if it was offered to me, and I’ll drink what’s in the cupboard, but I’m unlikely to buy it again.
