14 Tasting Notes
Nice ripe pu-erh with earthy and a bit flowery scent when dry. First steeps have a clear taste of almonds roasted in some honey. Later steeps becoming more earthy gradually. Absolutely not possible to get this tea any bitter, with any steep time. Nice regular pu-erh drink. About 15 steeps will be good. My review here: http://j.mp/ripepu
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.
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
Very good tea, not simple at all by its taste. Here’s more http://www.teablr.com/?p=493
Great tea, always in my cupboard.
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.
