drank Pouchong by Adagio Teas
148 tasting notes

Note: don’t eat some kimchi right before you taste tea. It takes awhile to actually taste the tea!

Ok, and now about 10 minutes later…
This has a very faint floral scent and a nice buttery flavor. It reminds me a bit of some green teas with a bit of vegetal flavor on top of the butteriness. It’s not the most amazing pouchong I’ve ever had but for the price it’s pretty decent! Nice understated florals. I think the 2nd steep may end up impressing me a bit more.

Also don’t eat a bunch of freshly grated garlic in a dressing. Kills the tastebuds for quite a while…

When I first read this I thought it was “Punchong” and envisioned an spicy oolong for some reason. I need some sleep.

Aiko – someone needs to make this now. Spicy pouchong = punchong!

Bio

I mostly drink straight tea, and some of my favorites are green teas and oolongs. I almost always have some sencha and tieguanyin in my tea cupboard (and if I run out, awesome, an excuse to buy tea). I do like some flavored teas, but can’t stand really sugary stuff so if it’s very sweet I probably won’t like it. I can’t drink milk so all my reviews are of tea without milk and sugar!
I’ve been getting into puerh the last few months.

Outside of Steepster I’m an English Lit major, and will FINALLY be graduating after the Fall 2013 semester. After that I plan on applying for graduate school to obtain a Master’s in Library Science. Currently I work as a student assistant in the Archives and Special Collections department of my school’s library.
I also like reading (of course) and playing video games when I have time for them.

I’m happy to send samples to anyone in the US or Canada. Just ask. :)
