5 Tasting Notes


The brew scales aren’t specific enough. I pretty much followed Verdant Tea’s recommendation and started with a 5 sec. steep with 208° water. Increasing 3 secs with each subsequent steeping. In a word, this tea is delicious!
It’s like Mi Lan Xiang because of it’s honey and floral notes. Minerality is tame and sweetness comes through. Honey, melon and wood notes are forward. Wet leaf aroma screams melon. Maybe honeydew? Full-bodied

I brewed this tea as I normally do with senchas, 160 for 45", 15" in a kyusu. The body was full. The tea tasted sweet and vegetal. There was also something about it that reminded my of sipping on sake. I highly recommend this tea but don’t hold onto it. It degrades fast.

drank Moorish Mint by Samovar

I LOVE mint leaves! And I’ve always had a thing for Moroccan mint tea. My favorite thing about this tea is how it opens up my nasal passages while drinking. This is the best mint tea I’ve had that doesn’t use fresh mint leaves.

drank Wuyi Dark Roast by Samovar
5 tasting notes

I didn’t fall in love with this tea immediately… but then again, the teas that I have to get to know in order to love always end up being my favorites. Oolong tea is my bag, particularly because there’s always something new to experience with each steep. This is especially true for Wuyi Dark Roast. I’d say my favorite infusion is the third. Dark and sweet all at once.

I’m a mobile espresso/tea bar owner living in Atlanta, GA. Tea has been my #1 passion for 6 years now. My “tea habit” gets worse as the years go on.
