9 Tasting Notes
One of the best black teas I have ever had.
The aroma is very intense and that is one of the things I like about this tea (though otherwise I’m not so fond of aromatic teas). This tea is also the most popular when I invite friends – I don’t have Teekanne style teas and the The des Moines smells better than Lung Ching or Tie Guan Yin, so normally, they prefer this one.
When I first tried this tea, I was amazed. But the next few cups weren’t that good. I realized you’ve got to be careful with the amount of leaves you take and with the steep time (water temperature should be around 80°C) or else the flavour can be too intense and this will ruin the gentleness of the white tea.
My favourite oolong. I would recommend it to anyone who likes less oxidized oolongs with a sweet note.
A good tea, though I’m more fond of less oxidized oolongs. But you can really make a bunch of steeps – at least up to 10.
Great oolong tea. I can get 6-7 steeps out of it, no problem.
Very good chinese black tea, nothing more to say. But quite different from Indian black teas.
