Tried a sample, very good pu-erh, wanted to buy a cake, but the cake is out of stock now :) Balanced flavor, sweet and earthy.
13 Tasting Notes
Great quality tea, Leaves are tightly rolled. Very clean and mild, it has a buttery earthy pea flavour, like some Longjing at first. Next infusions are also nice, but not so impressive though. No astringency on overbrewing. More sour and tieguaninish. A nice tea.
Nice ripe pu-erh, deep and not too simple. Chrysanthemum blossom adds some interesting taste at later steeps. http://www.teablr.com/?p=531
Nice oolong appearance, sour caramel and ginger notes, nitrogen undertones. This tea is strange, it has some chemicals note, but maybe it’s good for my health… :)
Not expansive or high style, but very fragrant and lively green tea from China. A bit similar to Japanese green teas. Palais has it very fresh, at least in their Israeli shop. Brewed in Gaiwan very fast. So it’s not becoming astringent, but sweet and yellowish green, similar to kamairicha. Small leaves have a great smell dry and when brewed. Good after meals or with sweets.
After trying Chinese Da Hong Pao, I’d say it’s basically similar taste.
I’ve got addicted to this tea!
It’s sweet, mellow, tasty, with light roasted aroma.
First infusion at 90C degrees, 1min+ – got almost tie guan yin :)
Next infusions are not so good, too light flavour.
But first infusion is great.
great tea, more mellow, because of organic buds, then http://www.palaisdesthes.co.il/products/shiraore-kuki-hojicha, but it’s better after some steeping knowledge trials. all hibiki-an teas are great. 3 tablespoons for 300ml – 1min or a bit more.
tasted 1 time, but need to wait for a special tea pot I bought for this tea :)
Excellent tea, strong flavor, great packaging!
I use half of small package they send for 200ml pot.
Very inspirational tea. Who can advise any better Tie Guan Yin?
will order more…
