drank Bai Lin Jin Zhen by TeaSpring
14 tasting notes

Tippy and peppery, but not in the same league a good Golden Yunnan. Bit of a medicine-ish taste.

[Update] I tried this again with a bit more leaf and for 5 minutes, came out much better- bolder and more interesting taste. Upped the rating to 85/100.

Note, I am brewing this Western Style, I will have to do another review for Gong Fu.

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

Started drinking tea regularly in 2003 when I read that tea helped broken bones heal faster, because I had one.

Discovered high quality loose-leaf a year later and was soon hooked on Indian, Chinese, and Japanese tea.

Also amassed a small but happy collection of Japanese Teaware.
