200 Tasting Notes
I’m disappointed to say I really didn’t like this. It’s not that it’s objectively a horrible tea or anything, but I just don’t really drink sweet hot drinks like hot chocolate or tea with sugar. The smell is powerful and disgusting but the taste is better. Still not really to my taste – I’ll have to see whether any of my friends like it
This is an incredibly tasty oolong, possibly the best oolong I’ve ever had. It’s lovely and subtle, reminds me a bit of a first flush darjeeling in its subtle sweet taste, but then it has the lovely characteristic smoky oolong flavour to it as well. It’s pretty expensive so I’ve only got a taster, but it is absolutely incredible and I will be rebrewing this pot for the rest of the day. What a wonderful day I have ahead!
For the first time in weeks I have got a few hours spare to tidy my room, listen to some music I have bought recently (ska music today) and drink my way through a pot or so of tea. You can’t go wrong with this tea. I left it brewing far longer than I normally would, and it still tastes wonderful. I love afternoons like this, in their understated way
That’s the last of it. So I’m going to brew the leaves again and again unil I can’t taste it an more (or forget and let the leaves go mouldy). One of my housemates is actually leaving soon to move to The South, and he loves it so it’s good that it has not run out until now. Pretty delicious – a really good Ti Kuan Yin… not that I have tried hundreds, but it’s the best one I’ve had
