64 Tasting Notes
A more mellow first steep than previous brewings. Enjoyable, but not the most distinctive Chinese green. A solid enough everyday tea.
This is my final piece, so I’m trying to savor it. Those notes of movie popcorn are really prevalent in the aroma of the first steeping.
The instructions on the bag recommended 190 for 3 minutes whereas the web site recommends boiling for 1-2 minutes. I went with the former for this first steeping.
A really unique pu-erh.
A light and refreshing first steep. The subtle citrus hints would make this a good “first timer” introduction to senchas for those used to Chinese greens and whites.
Brew this one right and you’re in for a treat. It’s got that bright, vibrant flavor you’d expect from a good sencha. Nice and smooth and the brewed leaves have a full, almost “cooked” aroma.
Used a little more leaf than usual this time around.
Though I think I’ll always prefer the old style Silver Needle, the slightly fuller tasting Bai Mu Dan is definitely a good every day go-to white tea. The light floral hints are nice accents without being at all overwhelming.
The “chesnut” overtones mentioned in the description are what took me by surprise when I first tried this mellow green. I like.
