1112 Tasting Notes
Thank you for the sample WymmTea
I had a lot of trouble with this one. The first few steeps were dominated by a sour note that just didn’t agree with me. I noticed others noted a sour cherry note so I guess that must be it? I finally found a later steep when it had sweetened up I could actually enjoy, but all in all I would say that this is not a sheng for me!
I have truly been enjoying these fresh spring green samples from TeaVivre Thanks so much again for the samples!
Fresh Dragon Well is a simple pleasure. So clean and crisp and sweet! Maybe not as complex as other teas but it doesn’t have to be. Sometimes all you need is a little green to brighten your life :)
Thank you for the sample Wymm Tea!
The dry leaf and packaging from Wymm is always so lovely. The first thing that struck me about this tea was as soon as the water hit it the aroma was quite intoxicating. Mostly like tart apricots with a hint of flowers. VERY aromatic in the first couple of steeps. Flavor is very nicely balanced between sweet and pleasant bitterness. It held up very well through many steeps too. It seems like a nice everyday type of sheng that is difficult to screw up. I oversteeped one since I brewed this up and work and I still found it quite drinkable when a lot of sheng would not have been!
I was so excited to try this flavor this morning! Thanks for the sample Red Leaf!
I made myself a cold matcha latte out of this. I love pistachios, and while this is a very tasty matcha flavor, I wouldn’t say the taste reminded me of pistachios really. It definitely has a nutty vibe. Maybe like a pistachio candy of some kind? Or nougat. It is somewhat nougat-ish.
Anyway, very nice flavor! I’ll happily finish my sample but this one won’t be a re-order for me.
