15 Tasting Notes

Classic, subtle, and calming. This tea is super-forgiving, and it lasts for around 4 brewings. Probably THE perfect evening tea in my book.

A very fragrant tea with an amazing first cup. Unfortunately doesn’t last past two brewings.

This tea is pretty great. It reminds me just slightly of earl grey, but far tastier. +1 for Indian oolongs.

Jury’s still out. A very distinctive, charred sort of flavor. I don’t think this is a lazy man’s tea, so no cup+tea for this one.

drank Black Dragon by The Tao of Tea

Not overly remarkable, but long lasting, and very satisfying. Not too unlike Bamboo Mountain or Green Dragon.

Good tea. I think I’ll start rinsing it. Second and third cups are the best.

Why does it taste like wood? Oh wait… I really tried to like this one, but I guess it’s not for my palate.

Bio

Most fond of Oolongs, Whites and Blacks. Green tea is usually too temperamental for me. Tisanes or blends are usually not my bag either. I drink tea Chinese style (cup + tea) at home, and use a tetsubin at work.
