1060 Tasting Notes

Thanks to a special tea friend for a sample of this one!

This tea lives up to its name! I like it very much. Very clean and sweet shou. I can’t really think of any descriptors other than that. It’s not particularly fruity or creamy or chocolatey, just good shou! I guess it is a little nutty tasting? Yeah, sweet and nutty :)

I checked the price on ebay and it’s not bad either. Would consider purchasing…trying to not go crazy and hoard too many puerh cakes just yet, hehe.

Last Wymm Tea sample!

These have all been good, especially the sheng. I’m a fan of jingmai…I say it tastes like floral custard. YUM! This one has a great thick mouthfeel, and nice sweetness to pleasant bitterness balance. Thanks again Wymm Tea this one is a winner :)

Thank you Wymm Tea for the sample!

This is another solid shou offering. Similar flavor to the Fifth Grade, but I am getting less wood taste and I am finding it more creamy. Slightly sweet and earthy but very clean. Very enjoyable and accessible shou!

Thank you so much Wymm Tea for this sample.

This sheng tastes like springtime! Heady, buttery floral dominates, with a honey sweetness, balanced out by a pleasant bitterness. There is a little hay/straw flavor that reminds me of a white tea.

It has plenty of flavor and complexity without the punchy agressiveness some young sheng seem to have.

VERY tasty. Something I would drink again :)

Thank you Wymm Tea for the samples for review!

I was impressed with Wymm’s presentation on the samples. https://instagram.com/p/z8s0NVxhy7/?modal=true It shows how much care they put into curating their teas for sure!

I decided to try the 5th grade shou on this chilly Sunday morning. I rinsed it three times instead of my customary twice for shou. It is a good solid clean tasting tea. Early steeps have a little woody taste. It is rich and a little sweet. https://instagram.com/p/z-J9pMxh7j/?modal=true

Later steeps the wood went away and it developed a dried fruit note. I really like shou with either a cocoa note or a fruit note, so I was quite pleased by this! https://instagram.com/p/z-MXu4xhxY/

Thanks again to Tashi and Sgrodka, I am really looking forward to trying the other three teas!

I’m enjoying this bold and citrusy tea very much. I figured out it is one of the few teas I can appreciate with my cold! I’ll probably finish my packet in the next day or so… boo.

Drank my sample of this tea from a friend all day today at work.

The first couple of steeps had an off putting sour note, but after that it was all nutty sweet wonderful shou flavor and very enjoyable!

drank Jasmine Oolong by Tea Ave
1060 tasting notes

Thank you so much tea ave for the samples for review!

I love jasmine green tea so I was very excited to see this one in my sample pack. I’ve never had a jasmine oolong before! I thought jasmine and green tea were perfect together, but jasmine and creamy butter oolong might be even better. The jasmine lasted through all my steeps (I used a gaiwan) and I was sad when this tea finally faded away. The aroma cup experience with this tea was incredible. With steeps #2 and #3 I got a toffee/burt sugar aroma! Pretty glorious stuff here if sweet buttery sweet green oolong and jasmine appeals to you!

I loved this one too!

how long did you sleep yours for and how much did you put in ur gaiwan?

Stephanie

I used half my sample pack- about 2tsp leaves I would guess. I used my smallest gaiwan which held about as much as the TeaAve cup would hold, only a couple ounces and did very short steeps that got longer as I went. Sorry, I wasn’t super scientific about it this time!
