6 Tasting Notes
Serviceable genmai from the asian market.
Vegetal and green tasting (but not a green tea). I don’t drink this much, though it is perfectly fine. This is one I pull out when my supply of other oolongs is getting low.
I like this tea. It is mellow and smooth. I am not a lover of fruity teas. This has a peachy aroma and slight peachy taste, but to me is more floral and not offensively fruity. Nice for a change of pace.
This is very similar to Zhi’s Wuyi. A little more laid back perhaps. I like the “woodiness” with a bit of floral nose. I usually do two steepings of this tea. Like it a lot.
This may be the best tea I’ve had ever. I first tasted it at Zhi during Eat Local week. A nice, extremely knowledgeable guy was steeping various teas. On the first steeping the aroma was sweet and floral. Tasting this tea after the first smell was a little surprising, it was more substantial and earthier than I thought it would be. Multiple steepings didn’t disappoint. I took home two ounces that day and this continues to be my “go-to” tea when I’m looking for “the cup that cheers” – that phrase was invented for this tea.
I drink this tea because I love the way it tastes and don’t really consider the “weight loss” properties. It is full bodied, yummy and toasty. Lots of depth. One of my favorite teas, but I really like a substantial dark tea for the “winter” (I live in Texas) especially. Drink this several times a week. Organic a plus.
