30 tasting notes

Spring 2011 harvest!

Gentle, sweet, harmonious, vegetal. Had a nice tingly mouthfeel. Tea brings forth associations of rivers and streams of water in a rainforest. Moving, restless water.

Different parameters gave varying results, this tea can be good in many ways. I think that temperature should be under 80° C but the steeping time can vary. I first drank it with small amount of leaves, steeping time ~1minute, and the result was smooth, interesting, quite clearly green tea. I noticed an interesting tate, which reminds me of Korean green teas, and I tried to emphasise it with larger amount of leaves. On the edge of being oversteeped, this tea was quite interesting, strong in mouthfeel and less vegetal.

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.
