1108 Tasting Notes
Well, this is really different. Thanks for sharing boychik :)
I steeped this Western style for about 2 minutes. It DOES have some really strange tongue numbing effects. I’m not getting any bitterness, but it does have a strange under-ripe veggie flavor. The liquor SMELLS really sweet though. There are some complex notes I’m having trouble identifying. I am enjoying this. And the dry leaf is really twisty and fuzzy and pretty. I’ve gotten so many beautiful teas lately, I think I want to do some artsy tea photography this weekend. Doesn’t that sound fun? :)
I’ve been drinking this one all day! Thanks Terri
This has a nice bold tangy, tongue tingling flavor! A little stone fruit notes in the middle steeps. Quite nice! There is some very light smoke aroma, but almost no smokey taste is detectable. The chaqi is really great on this one. I’ve been zipping along all day! Go sheng! heh
PURE HEAVEN! Thank you so much Terri HarpLady for letting me try it.
I’m pretty sure this is last year’s, because I just checked on the website and it seems that this year’s harvest is in pre-order mode right now. It is taking all of my willpower not to order some RIGHT NOW. I have a full ounce of summer harvest Laoshan green from last year I haven’t even opened yet…must be strong. This is top notch though. SO SO GOOD! Everything I love about Laoshan green but even more concentrated :)
