97 Tasting Notes

I’ve tried multiple thing with this one, on the bag it’s written 5 × 5 secs, it was a little light to my taste though.
I’ve tried something like : 2 rinces, 15’’, 15’’, 30’’, 45’’, 1’, 1’30’’, 2’00.
This pu erh is ok, no off taste, but no depth, as it can be find in an older pu erh. Ok for an everyday tea.

Very good rooibos with a strong coconut taste and a slight rhubard. The vanilla taste of the rooibos is present and is added nicely to the rest.

Brewed in a big teapot, I tried multiple brewing time. Ok tea, but still, the bad black tea basis from Le Palais Des Thes is there

I’ve bought this tea for taking it everyday at work. On the bag it’s written “cinnamon and liquorice notes”, well – at first I couldn’t find them, but 5 minutes after drinking a cup, I could feel the liquorice taste in my mouth.
It’s a medium tea: there is a very light floral taste and something that reminds me of cereal, surprising. Nothing like the usual Tie Guan Yin, not bad, but not crazy either – a good tea for its price.
The thing that surprised me the most me with this tea is how hard it’s to brew : impossible to get something in a big teapot … I’ve tried a long steep, a short one, more leaves … nothing : a light faint taste of cereal, nothing more.
And in Gong Fu Cha, it works ! Surprisingly, the steep are quite long : 40’’ – 45’’ – 1’10 – 2’00 – 2’30.

At first, I didn’t know how to prepare this one, since, at first I thought it was a green tea. Actually, it’s a red one (well black using the western terminology :).
I’ve tried in a gaiwan like a classic red tea : 1’00 – 2’00 – 3’00 (boiling water) and it was very good, with fruity, bit smoky taste which stay in the mouth after drinking.

Brewed in a big teapot, in a gaiwan, changed the steeping time … but still remains too light and with an off-taste. Reminds me of what I can find in a tea bag.

Brewed in gong fu cha with a small teapot : 20’’ – 25’’ – 40’’ – 60’’ – 1’30 – 2’30’
Last infusion was very light.
Nice Phoenix Dan Cong with a strong fruity after taste, not very strong though, compared to some other Phoenix I’ve tried. Easy to brew, I’ve tried with more leaves and increasing the steeping time and it was still quite good.

I’ve tried this jasmine tea in gong fu cha and a big teapot.
The smell is very good, smell like a very good jasmine tea. Once brewed, the taste is light, better than a basic jasmine tea but not remarkable.

Preparation
160 °F / 71 °C 3 min, 0 sec
