42 Tasting Notes
This mugged me. It’s so smoky for me that it reminds me of a barbecued pig, i finished the cup I made, but since, it’s been sitting on the shelf collecting dust, perhaps I will try it again someday…
reminiscent of pine.
Every time I have this it reminds me of Coca-Cola sans the nasty sweetness and carbonation.
Thank you GOD! Tonight when I prepared this tea, I was very meticulous. I pulled out the tea scale, thermometer and the spring water. I waited for the water to come down from 93 C to 85C (I live in CO, so H2Obp is 93ish) and poured the water into my vessel so the leaves floated for a bit before being completely submerged. As I was pouring, the aroma was creamy, like pie. Exactly three minutes later, I decanted and took my first sip. It was like dessert: sweet, smooth, like liquid candy.
I never want to run out of this, but I cannot wait to drink more tomorrow =)
I would say the description of this tea is dead on, except for the tinge of jasmine I am getting. I don’t like jasmine. I’m giving this a low rating for MY reference.
Today was another long day in the laboratory. I was excited to come home to some new teaware. I received the Tea Forte Kati double walled ceramic tea brewing cup-thing. I decided to make some oolong and this came to mind.
It tastes like lentils and that’s all I have to say.
This is interesting. I believe this is the second pot I’ve drank of this tea. When I brought the cup to my mouth it had the familiar scent of genmaicha and marijuana- no pun intended. It’s subtly sweet and is very smooth.
Last night my partner and I had a “date night” 60 miles from our home. All day I had been waiting for this tea parcel to arrive, but I knew it wouldn’t be delivered until the evening. After having indulged James’ affinity for microbrews, we were back on the road home. Pulling up the drive, I saw a quaint package sitting on our porch and my excitement was stoked. After having unloaded our purchases, I quickly ripped open my desideratum.
The dry leaves evinced my grandma’s almond cookies—okay, my grandma never made cookies, she made sopaipillas, but regardless, it was an olfactory orgasm.
I made a pot in the Beehouse pot I had bought earlier in the day.
The liquor was creamy, ripe with almond flavor and filling— I was sated.
I think it was worth the restless night to have tasted this delightful tea.
Nice Yunnan, good creamy body, not as sweet as Golden Yunnan from Rishi.
