I have wanted to try a Tai Ping tea for a long time!

The leaves are HUGE and flat. Since I don’t subscribe to the gadgetry concept and don’t use any of those new fangled scales :) I eyeballed the amount I put into my smart brewer.

I must have done well with my measuring because the flavor is rich, vegetative, buttery, nutty, and just plain AWESOME. I’m liking it a lot! A very smooth taste but with a nice mouthfeel. The mouthfeel is a little thicker than a Dragonwell, but not quite as thick as a green Oolong. Pleasant!

A very strong buttery taste, and a nice nutty quality to it.

Ah… I love this tea!

I am on my second infusion of this tea now. I brewed this one a bit too long because I forgot to set the timer! No matter though, the tea does not taste bitter, it is a bit stronger in flavor than the first infusion because of the length of time it was infused. The nutty flavor seems to be emerging more in this infusion. It has a very nice sweetness to it – not like sugary sweet, but nutty sweet. I am falling more in love with this tea each time I take a sip.
