55 Tasting Notes

I love this tea – deep golden brown color and “toasty” scent. Tastes a bit nutty but a great mellow start to my day.

This weirded me out with the puffed rice mixed in with the tea, but it was a really complex, nutty flavor. Nice for a cold, gray, Fall afternoon.

I have not had genmacha since college when my Japanese room mate introduced me to it. It was one of my favourite before I discovered the joys of coffee.

I really liked the slightly sweet taste – I usually drink a different brand’s oolong, but I really enjoyed this. Full-flavor with a lovely woody scent and deep color. My new favorite!

I like this tea – very clean white tea, pale yellow with a very light scent. Slight taste of melon, but not overpowering. I prepared this by heating my water to 175 degrees and steeping it about 4 1/2 minutes.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 4 min, 30 sec

I mixed 1 tbsp of the China Pai Mu Tan with 1/2 a tbsp of the Pomegranate fruit mix (SubtleTea). Terrific pink/orange color and a light fruit scent, not overpowering. Still a very clean taste.

Trying this from my white tea sampler – so light, especially after the foomosa oolong from this morning. Light – take a while to steep properly. I don’t like this as much as the Silver Needle, White Peony or White Symphony. But nice to try.

This is a lovely tea – delicate flavor, slightly sweet and less grassy than Silver Needle (my all-time favorite). Perfect for a morning that I’m feeling out of sorts…
