42 Tasting Notes
This is my standby oolong at work. It is really tasty, but cheap enough that if I get distracted I won’t be mad if I brew a cup then not return to my desk for an hour and have to make a new cup. It has a nice baked aroma with some honey sweetness. The tea itself is a little bit like honey with a slight bit of tannin. Nothing too complex, but good to sip on throughout the day.
Without a doubt, this is a JASMINE tea. This is very heavy on the jasmine, really fills the room with an amazing aroma. The flavor of the green tea is lost until the third steep, the jasmine shines more than anything. Nothing tastes artificial, this is a very high quality tea. It’s relaxing to watch the pearls open up in a glass vessel while brewing. Very fragrant, no bitterness. Great tea to relax with.
This is on the border between a medium roast and a dark roast tieguanyin. It has a very bready aroma and taste to it with a slight hint of sweetness, like walking into a bakery. This is an extremely forgiving tea, I’ve brewed it boiled, and at 195, both are fantastic. Got a good three steepings out of it.
