From Pan Xiang (磐香)

According to the Chinese on the back, this TieGuanYin is from Fujian, Anxi County. It’s a ‘Grade 1’ tea (there is also mention of ‘top grade’, I’m not sure whether the grading system ascends or descends – some clarification would be appreciated), but I think this may be a marketing term. Something about lots of rainfall and tasting as good as it smells and looks…

The brewing method says to take 7~10g and steep with 100 degree Celsius water for 1~2 Minutes.

It says you can brew these leaves 8~10 Times.

It has a very fresh grassy taste to it, without an over-bitterness.

For $13NZD for 75g, I’d say this is a pretty average cup of tea.

The colour of the brewed liquid is a pretty standard yellow-green. Not much more to say about it.

The leaves themselves are not particularly uniform: some are broken up into smaller parts, some are soft and smooth while others are rigid and tough. Leaves varied in length from approx. 10mm~20mm, and there were perhaps 2 or 3 leaf-with-bud-attached surprises.

The Aroma is a very crisp, almost sharp grassiness, and I was happy to note that it was reflected well by the taste, which was also a sharp grassiness.

There wasn’t much depth, if any: the flavour lingering on the tongue for only a few seconds.

Overall this was an underwhelming cup of tea, but it was still enjoyable for what it was.
