1592 Tasting Notes
I made this for my husband this morning. For some reason, I really try to LOVE Yunnan teas, but I gotta be real… I’m just not that into Yunnan. So my husband got this tea and finished it off. He loves the smokey and strong black teas, like Lapsang Souchongs and such. I added some milk and sugar to this, as per his request. I stole a sip and realized it tastes great with milk and sugar!
I’m going snowtubing with my husband soon! Its his first time doing any snow activity so it should be exciting! :) Anyway, I was craving this oolong before we leave. I brewed this up and this is divine! So floral! I brewed this western style as I wanted a huge mug of this! I love the fruity aftertaste to it. Delicious!
Thank you TheDJBooth for this sample!
I love the concept of this tea. This was a good, fresh, bold green tea! The dry leaves are forest green in color. They smelled fresh and green. The leaves were curled up almost like gunpowder but not all the way.
After Infusion, the liquor was a light yellow color almost like a white tea. The scent was sweet with a little nutty note to it. The flavor was bold! I was pleasantly surprised by the natural sweetness in this brew. There was a hint of maltiness, savory and nuts and toast to it but it isnt loud. The green and grassy notes also played its tune. This tea was very smooth! Good tea overall :)
