456 Tasting Notes
This is a most delicious Raw Puerh, I just got a sample and Now i want to get an entire cake.
I don’t often use the word complex to describe a tea but in this case it’s the best word, This Tea has a slightly complex and wonderful flavor profile to me.
The armoa of this one when dry is slightly vegetal raw puerh type aroma and the taste of this one starts of with pleasant bitter and slightly sweet vegetal notes on the first few steeping while at around the 3rd and 4th steeps it develops first some wonderful sweet Roasted Oolong characteristics then I get earthy woodsy notes like sandalwood and forest I think to myself Wow now it’s like a Shu :)
The aroma of the steeped leafe is quite earthy and much like a shu/ripe puerh aroma, I got about 3 more steeps of delicious slightly sweet but bitter, woodsy, earthy goodness, Super Nice Puerh, I think anybody could enjoy this one.
100 points for this one for sure, I’m seriously gonna get a whole cake now :)
Yummy, very tastey tea :)
It has very bold almost white tea flavor to me that develops more into young raw puerh flavors after a few steepings with a slight spicy almost peppery bite to it while still remaining slightly sweet and vegetal.
See my blog post here with photos :)
I been sipping on this one a little bit today and yesterday because the weather around here has been cool like in the fall, This is a nice one very light and fruity, the taste of the apple and cranberry go together so nicely that i can’t single them out separately because they unite as one delicious unique flavor and the flavor of the tea itself is a nice light oolong with faint floral notes. I should have gotten this one around Christmas or Thanksgiving time because it would have been perfect with some Thanksgiving turkey :)
I also enjoy eating the fruits out of it after I drink it that makes it even better, Yummy!!!
Hay is for Horses but better for Cows, Toads can eat it but i think we’d rather drink it, This one taste sweet and like Hay with an almost buttery smooth mouthfeel, Saying taste like hay is not a bad thing at all it’s really damn tastey, many white teas i’ve tried have had slight haylike taste just not so much as this one and never in a bad way.
The dry leafe has a sweet almost floral aroma to it that is very pleasing, my sample got crushed in the bottom of a box because i had to box up all my teas and move them around into another room due to renovations and when I pour some out in my hand the little pieces of leafe feel very soft and fuzzy like goose down in a soft pillow.
Some teas feel really good when you hold it in your mouth and swish it around some, this is one of them.
I did decide to try this one with a little sweetener added and it was delicious, reminded me of the taste of honeycomb cereal from when i was a kid.
Very good tea, I’m really starting to like white teas more and more these days :)
