15 Tasting Notes

75

An honest Oolong that lasts for many steepings. Clean and earthy, but not peaty – makes you really want to pay attention to it. Easy to brew, and delicious at any time of day.

A solid full-bodied earthy tea. I liked the first tin a good bit more than the second. Not sure what that’s all about…

This one surprised me. First time I brewed it, I didn’t like it at all – way too flowery – reminiscent of rose hips. Maybe a month later, I tried it again, and was very pleased. This is by far the most floral Oolong I’ve tried. You should really drink this one very hot, since the aroma and floral bouquet decay into a mundane, but never bitter cup of tea. Probably best Gongfu style.

drank White Peony by The Tao of Tea

White Peony has a much darker, greener flavor than other whites I’ve tried. I usually steep it 4-5 times, which is great mileage compared to Silver Needle or similar. Great evening tea, very forgiving, and works well in a pot, or Chinese style.

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.
