Got some more of this one when I ordered from Uptons this month, I realy like this one i think I’ll keep some around. Slightly nutty with a nice mouthfeel, nice aroma also.
359 Tasting Notes
I’m not sure my baby likes it, she just sniffed it at first and then looked at me kinda crazy and turned her nose up at it. I left it on the floor for her and she did come back and got one small taste after it sat there for 2 hours, maybe she dont like it maybe she just wasnt thirsty hard to tell, i’m sure she will drink it eventually. It’s not bad really tho it don’t taste like bacon it taste like valerian.
Ok this one was interesting I liked it most people would probably not like it at first or at all even, to me it is complex in flavor because it changes as you steep it more and more and it goes on and on it outlasted me. Dry aroma is no aroma it just a odd smell like that of ancient books in fact that exactly how its starts out tasting also almost stale tasting like and old musty book kinda of dull and just odd as steep went by it got much better end for me quite lively and smooth and refreshing, almost as if were dead at first and came back to life. An acquired taste I like it alot worth a try for anyone who enjoys odd flavors. Also pretty much no steep time at all for this one really just pour the water right over it through the strainer into a cup over and over and over.
Also one more thing of note on this one I got screwed on this one when purchasing but that happens sometimes the money wasted isn’t important to me but the issue is worth a share here so others can look out for things like this, I found this one finally twice and bought it twice from 2 completely different places(because the info they gave on it was completely different) one was this place listed here Grand Tea (good place) and another place that I just wont name because of what they did, 13$ for 50grams from grandtea and whole lot more from the other place for also 50grams. I got in the mail first the one from grandtea and then I got really confused when a week later I got more from grand tea??? nope it was from the other company that charged me more for it, they got it from grand tea for 13$ and sold it to me described differently as if it was made by different type bugs and was a different type “Chong Cha” but stupid them they didn’y even bother to remove grand teas sticker from it lol. Life Lesson.
I decided to just drink this one today, I like it a lot, I steeped as I just normally would in the gaiwan with short infusion times under a minute cuz that’s just the way i do it and it was perfectly nice but I think maybe I’ll give the instructions a try from now on also because when i steeped it for the recommended 4 minutes it was even better of course stronger or darker but also now more complex with cocoa undertones, very good with milk.
Oh yeah also want to say I’m impressed with Upton Teas so far, I just got a small sample of this tea from a friend like 5 days ago tasted it liked it ordered it and its already here in my cup and on my shelf, that’s just the way i like a company to process and ship an order :)
This one is almost same as the other Panyang Congou I drank the other day it just seemd to be a little richer and smoother, same malty caramel notes and the same tobacco-like sweetness. I’ve read a few review on this type of tea and very few point out the tobacco tones so maybe it’s just me but thats what I pick up from it and I like it, maybe just because I use to chew tobacco I don’t know.
Steepster is acting crazy tonight. Anyway i’ll try this again. I added an oolong to this one tonight to see how it would taste and i pretty much tasted just that oolong cuz it overpowered this one, it was a no name oolong(in a glass container marked Oolong) from my local heath food store, very good heavy roasted, rich oolong taste with nice sized dark twisted leaves, i’m not sure but i think it maybe a wuyi oolong there is no way of knowing the people at the store don’t know anything about their teas at all.
This one is a nice anytime tea also, it’s much like the Samovar blend from Tea Table with just a little more malty boldness.
I like this one has a tobacco-like sweetness with caramel and maltyness and a little astringency, it’s very good it just makes think of tobacco.
This is a better review on my blog :)
Pretty good, you can taste the Assam in this one but it is well balanced with the others for a very nice anytime cup of tea.
I really like this one, not sure what else to say about it other than its just really good.
Nice tasting affordable pu-erh, These have taste of earthiness at first and sweetness follows, pleasant aroma that smells slightly sweet when dry and earthy but not dirty after steeped, many infusions with short steeps.
Backlog* I tried this one the other day.
Good for drinking many times this one makes a dark thick tea with a smooth clean taste and delicate aroma, this one would be nice for those who want to try a nice Pu-erh but don’t like the strong earthy notes of Pu-erhs, This one is slightly earthy and wonderfully Clean tasting , I would recommend this one to beginners for sure.
Now you can buy just one cake instead of the whole stack :)
Hello Steepster :)
This is an Oolong that I could drink often, it is deliciously bold to me with even a little earthyness to it, The Aroma is wow so good in both the steeped leaves and the dry leaves you can almost taste it when you smell the dry leaves. Super good. read my review on the site here http://siam-tee.de/product_reviews_info.php?products_id=31&reviews_id=23
Short infusions in the gaiwan made several cups
Wonderful, Steeped in the gaiwan using short steeps of 30 seconds up to 1 minute this one brews up a pale yellow color with a smooth almost buttery flavors to me, this is also very nice to feel in the mouth velvety smooth. The steeped leaves have a nice floral aroma that is absent in the liquor. It leaves a pleasant taste lingering in my mouth like a sweet aftertaste very nice.
I prefer dark teas and Liu Bao is one of my favs This one ranks right up there with most of the rest, 2 or 3 rinses is needed for this tea I learned that the hard way lol but after proper rinse and steep this one proved very nice Liu Bao. It was nice and earthy without tasting “dirty” with a sweetish after taste, smooth mouthfeel. Would have been great to have seen some gold dust on it but most loose Liu Bao I’ve had don’t have that for some reason. Great tea to me!
Very good Tea! I thought at first from looking at this tea that it was a green tea but I see it’s called a yellow tea. I didn’t follow steeping instructions on this one and I just used the gaiwan with steeps less than one minute and it is wonderful and not weak at all from such a short steep, reminds me of some of the oolongs I’ve had and feels great in the mouth makes ya just want to swish it around a little. Maybe I’ll try following the directions to see what happens :)
mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, so good
Trying a different steeping method :)
Hmmm, interesting, Tastes good almost Oolong like and it was a dark green color, like incredible hulk green.
