181 Tasting Notes

drank Black Dragon Pearls by Adagio Teas

It took me a while to get the right time and serving size for this, but I think I got it. I need this strong, especially on a cold, rainy morning like today’s. 3 balls for a single cup, 5 minutes in boiling water. Resteeping once or twice will keep me going until lunch.

I’m going to have to give this one another shot soon. Tomorrow sounds like a good day. Done.

Way heavy on the cinnamon, but pretty decent as far as iced chai lattes go (not that I’ve had any others besides Starbucks). I’m detecting a little bit of mint too.

drank Emerald Lily by Rishi Tea

As the leaves are steeping, the aroma reminds me of fresh, steamed corn on the cob. I’m getting a little bit of chestnut as well, and taste-wise, the touch of lightly-sweet flowers is just plain awesome.

TeaCast

Wow, that sounds awesome, you’ve inspired me to pick that up haha.

This. Sounds. AMAZING. At the risk of sounding like a big weirdo [ah, who am I kidding, I’m a big weirdo anyway] I LOVE corn on the cob. Like @teacast, you’ve convinced me. I shall be taking advantage of Steepster Select today.

drank Yuzu Oolong by Naivetea
181 tasting notes

I always seem to confuse Yuzu with something else. For some reason I used to think it was a type of herb, when it’s really citrus (grapefruit-like)! After one whiff of these dried leaves though, I will never make the same mistake again. The tea itself is rolled Tie Guan Yin (Iron Goddess Oolong). Steeped for 4 minutes. A nice after-lunch tea.

Hi! It is actually not a grapefruit. It may look like one but it is its own fruit. :)

Jack

Oh! Good to know… I fixed it :) Thanks!

drank Gyokuro by Radiance Tea

It’s good to be back in New York, albeit for only a few days. Sitting here at Radiance Tea House and this Gyokuro is delish, yo. The wet leaves smell amazing, and the liqueur is a bright lime green.

drank Tea 380 by TWG Tea Company
181 tasting notes

This is one of those teas that you can’t drink every day. You have to be in the right mood for its white/oolong/floral-ness. It’s fragrant, and sometimes overwhelmingly so. Reminds me of certain vienna green teas, except without the chocolate nibs.

drank Keemun Mao Feng by Rishi Tea

Just finished my first tin of this — one of my favorites! And now I’m in the market to try a new keemun. Any suggestions?

Auggy

Adagio’s Keemun Rhapsody is my all time fav Keemun. I’ve had the Rishi (have some in my desk at work right now) and it is good but Adagio’s is smoother and has just a great flavor.

Jack

Thanks! Will give it a try.
