drank Tan Yang Te Ji by TeaSpring
15 tasting notes

Fourth cup, ninth steep since Tuesday. I think I’m hooked.

Watch it, Steepster. I might have to order the rest of their supply.

Boiling 1 min, 15 sec

Ha! I stocked up recently. I tend to get 200g at a time of this one. I’d get more, but I’m not made of money. Not when I also want to get other things from TeaSpring. :)

Yeah; if this tea is so spectacular, they must have something else worth drinking, eh?

Angrboda

Definitely. In my experience, they sell a very good quality. If I were you I wouldn’t bother too much with the more expensive Tan Yang Jing Zhi. I tried it one, and found I actually enjoyed the Te Ji more. I didn’t think the Jing Zhi was really worth the increase in price.
You should also have a go at their Bai Lin Ju Hong, I think you might enjoy that one as well. I think it’s very similar to the Tan Yang, but smoother and sometimes, not always, I’ve found an uncanny note of oranges or tangerines in it. I haven’t tried the Bai Lin Jin Zhen, but I suspect it might be the same sort of story as the two types of Tan Yang. If you enjoy Keemun, I’ve also been very pleased with the Keemun Hao Ya A. I haven’t explored their oolong section very much recently, so I can’t give you any suggestions there. I’ve got some standing around though, it’s just a question of finding a good time to give them the proper attention.

Thanks so much for your recommendations! I’ll be sure to add them to the wishlist. Bai Lin Ju Hong sounds very intriguing. :)
