I love Pouchong. When I saw this one was a GREAT TASTE GOLD Winner in 2009 I had to try it!

After I received it I took a look at the ratings on steepster and I am a little afraid…altho there are only 3 logs – one is a really low rating, one isn’t rated but commented, and the other is an 80. So…could it be one of those teas that are all across the board!? Not sure.

Here are my findings…

I know the term “Agony of the Leaves” is to describe the unwinding and unfurling of the tea leaves but I have always found it to be somewhat of a downer…I mean really…think about it…it sounds PAINFUL. Most of the time I say the leaves dance because it’s more positive and it sounds happier! Well, these leaves are somewhere inbetween. It seems like they want to dance but they are struggling…perhaps a sign of good multiple infusions!? Maybe…time will tell.

This isn’t much for aroma. It isn’t much for color…very pale. Heck it’s not really that strong in taste and I went 5 minutes. It’s a really tasty taste – what I CAN taste of it…but it’s VERY mellow. It IS very clean…I will say that.

I’m going do a 2nd Infusion before I rate…

“Agony of the leaves” makes me sad too (unless I’m making terrified screaming sound effects while watching the leaves writhe, then I’m happy). But I think I shall adopt your term “Dancing of the Leaves” since I can do the saner thing and sing music for the leaves to dance to while they waltz around. ;)
