So, I long for this tea, as it was the gateway tea that lead me to the tea culture. If anyone would like to swap me some, I would love them greatly

Okay, so in a previous review, I stated that i was looking for a bolder oolong… something with a little more kick… and i do believe i found it.

Thanks goes to Ost for hooking me up with this guy…
And a small disclaimer- I do believe this is the right tea, however, there were two options when i searched for this tea… so

This one wowed me a little more than the last i think. I had a beautiful roasted flavor and aroma from the get. I love it.

drank Anxi Tie Guan Yin by teasenz
61 tasting notes

Okay So, I am catching up a tad because I have no data on my phone and not wireless at home. According to my notes, i drank this on 10/16, so…

Sip Down!!!

First things first, Thank you to Ost (don’t know how to bold) for this wonderful sample. She took wondrous care of me in our swap, which her kindness left me feeling inspired because of her amazing generosity yet painfully downtrodden because i had no idea she would be sending me so much, and didn’t match her appropriately, but anyway…

I am in love with Oolong. It, Thus far, is my all time favorite straight tea. Having said that though, I am still developing my pallet and am still a little green as far as reviews go. I loved this tea, and its the first really Tie Guan Yin that i have tried by that name. It was special to me because i had heard so much about how amazing this tea was, how it would change me forever about oolong.

And it did… kinda

The dry leaves were very aromatic, smelling of fresh flowers (lilac, maybe… of honeysuckle). I love opening the little baggy and being taken to another place. Steeping the leaves were a breeze, because of my new Yixing so my steepings were as follows:

1st- 45 Seconds. Beautiful aroma and light colour liquor. Very light flavor.
2nd- 1min15sec. Bolder coloured cup, a lot more flavor. still floral.
3rd- 1min45sec. Began to taste a buttery warmth, like that of a smokey or roasted tea (which would make sense)
4th- 2min15sec. Became very…light. Lost a lot of the aroma and flavor.

I did like this tea and it did spark my interest about what else there might be out there, but i must admit, i was expecting something a little more bold, i think… something more roasted and smoky… But certainly not upset. Thank you Ost :)

So, this worked last time so, I’ll try it again. I have never tried this tea, but I would desperately love to try this. It sounds so fantastic. If anyone would like to, I would love to swap for this tea.

It Brews Pink… Kinda my whole wrap up on it. I love the tea very much, it brews well with the spiced apple cider, like a spicy caramel apple with nuts!!! :)

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 5 min, 45 sec 3 tsp 18 OZ / 532 ML

It brews pink because it has beet root. A surprising ingredient considering the taste of the infusion, i think they add it because of the color it gives to the tea.

Good call Bruno
