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.
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 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!
