1012 tasting notes

I finally made my way over to Tea Trekker! (which involved falling waist deep into a snow bank)
I mean, how likely is it that there is an expert tea store in your town?? They go to China to buy all the teas!
I spoke with Bob about the teas I like (Da Hong Pao, Shui Xian, Tie Kwan Yin, Taiwan oolongs, but not Bai Hao, black, or white teas so much). I really have been wanting to get into green teas, so Bob recommended me this as a good transition from oolong to green.
I really like this tea – it is strong like an oolong but you can really taste the differences. This is great, and it tastes so fresh! It’s slightly bitter/astringent, but I actually kind of like it – it’s something that will probably grow on me (unlike astringent oolongs!!)

Bio

My favorite teas are high mountain, Wuyi, and dancong oolongs. I also need my deep steamed sencha every now and then. I’m not totally into flavoreds but I’m always up for interesting flavors (like ATR’s Nirvana and Toasted Fig). My favorite natural flavors are roasted and floral.

I have a BA in Biochemistry from Smith College with a minor in Japanese
Currently attending KGI (Keck Graduate Institute) for a Master of Bioscience

I love J-R&B and J-Urban and used to do a radio show on WOZQ Northampton, MA
I play both WoW (Airine on Executus) and LoL (Airine)
