474 Tasting Notes
I tried this one again thanks to Stacy :)
Please check out my blog post on it, pretty much same review as last time but this time I picked up on another flavor/taste note in this one, Last time my nose was messed up which could have very much changed my taste perception.
This one is a decent/good Puerh to me, Slightly “fishy” aroma at first in the rinse and first steep that was gone by the second steep(perhaps i’ll break one and air it out next time). The color is quite very dark almost completely black and “thick”. The flavor is nice a solid, earthy and slightly sweet with a pleasant “doughy” tast that is reminiscent of Pie Crust which was very nice. Best of all to me was the leafe itself, intact, large leafe pieces, no crumbling and very little stems. Good Tea!
I added this Tea here but No Photo, Sorry Steepster just ain’t gonna let me add the photo, oh well at least the tea is logged :)
Awesome good white tea, the color is very pale and the flavor is bold, It does have a slight nuttiness to it and the description say “fresh and fruity” i’m not getting the fruity but instead maybe a very faint floral taste, not a specific floral taste like jasmine or any other flower that I know of just kinda generic floral type taste sensation even more so in the aftertaste, it lingers on my tongue and the back of my mouth. As far as the freshness I’m not sure that I qualify to make statement about the freshness of a tea but it taste fresh to me and the delicious lingering after taste does leave my mouth feeling “fresh”, the intake of breath following a sip of this tea is very nice too almost like i can taste it in the air and in my lungs lol just part of the aftertaste i guess.
The leafe is very beautiful, one on the prettiest teas that i’ve seen, rather large tips or needles “whatever” leaves! that are very fuzzy like a lambs ear.
I’ve never really been big on white teas but here lately I’ve been buying teas that Look pretty to me in hope that their taste would compare to their beauty and so far those have been really good and a few of them are other white teas so now maybe i’ll get into white teas a little more or at least discover some that I do enjoy like this one.
There it goes, finally posted :)
I received one of my orders today, this Ancient Puerh Tea Crystal was one of my items, I made this and I must say that I was not very fond of the taste at all BUT the “feelings” I get from it is just unbelievable. Very very Happy feeling now, taste like a medicine or something but it must be good medicine and once ya start feeling good it don’t taste so bad anymore.
It get a High rating for the High feeling it gives me Like a drug, Chinese Black Magic :)
This one isn’t bad at all to me, In fact I like it quite a bit, It’s nice and dark and roasty and delicious, It’s Da Hong Pao what else can I say they all seem to taste a little different in ways but still slightly the same in ways.
I order it once just a little 99cent sample size package of it and I ended up ordering more then I just went ahead and got me 250g cuz it is good to me and it all came in little samples packages for taking with me on the go sometimes(fox full of those little guys)
I’m at the hospital waiting room while my mom has her brain surgery and as usual no good tea in the hospitals so I bring some of this, I did have to use a styrofoam cup but I got two cups and a plastic lid and kinda made my own styrofoam gaiwan by simple using the lid to strain over into the other cup, it worked very well :) Anyways tastey you should try it :)
Superb Tea, right now I just don’t have much to say about it because my mind is preoccupied with other things, I haven’t seen Lance since Thursday when he went into the hospital for hip replacement and worried for my mother.
I will get to see Lance tomorrow(at his moms, where he is recovering) but I stayed home on this hospital visit because I’m just not in a proper emotional state right now and he needed stress free time in the hospital, I’m stressing very badly.
I’m worried for my mother’s brain surgery on Monday to remove a tumor and hope it is a success and if it is then we have to pray that it’s not cancer, Please those of you who pray, Pray for my Mom :)
Its a really good Tea tho I’ll give it a proper review soon just wanted to log it and I guess I wanted to let you guys know what’s happening in my life right now.
“I enjoyed this one with milk and sugar not because it needed it but because I just wanted to because it was really good, I like teas this way sometimes I just don’t like having to bring out the cream and sugar and all cuz I’m picky and that is a whole different setup from my “usual” but this one really just almost taste like a chocolate flavored Tea with milk and sugar, Really I have had “Milk Chocolate” Flavored Teas that just come nowhere near this one"
