30 tasting notes

I have mixed feelings about this tea. First steep had a nice, soothing, smooth taste. Presence was calm. Tea was really mild in taste. THe second brew, however, started to have more taste, and the taste it gave reminds me of Darjeeling teas. I don’t want my white pu’er taste like Indian black. Tea leaves get darker with every brew, and taste as well. Interesting phenomenon, although not very pleasant, I think.

First steep was nice, if only I could get that taste with later brews…
Lower temperature gives a dry, really unpleasant mouthfeel.

Bio

Tea enthusiastic, and a one of founders of Uutos, Finnish company providing tea-consultation and organizing events. We tend to drink up our winnings.

Haven’t been posting much lately, been drinking teas mostly not found on internet stores and not bothering to log them. My tea drinking has also been shifting away from analytical tasting, and more towards feeling and experiencing, so I’m writing less notes. I do recognize both sides of tea drinking important for me, and I believe I will start logging more frequently again, maybe with spring teas.
