19 Tasting Notes
Saw Cofftea trying this out so I bought a sample. 1st steep 15sec. Real mild not strong like the few others i have tried. Will follow his timing for others. Great stuff
First time having a cup of #40. New to Oolong so I thought i would buy this one. Used the default from Adagio. 2 tps, First cup 15sec. The sweetness already coming through wow.
Silver Needles: Read a message on board. new steeping setting. Great results 1.1.5m 2. 2.5m 3. 170F 3.5m
I drop one in a 5oz Giawan.1-2 infusion 30sec. 3-4 1min. Seems to work for me. I think this way it isn’t over powering.
Temp is kind of vague for this tea. Steaming briskly to me mean about 185F. Little too hot for me. I use 170 at 3min. Very mellow tea and nice color. I think it is about 9 months old kind of lossing its spirit
My first log entry. 10am. I have been drinking this tea from specialteas.com for some time. It is my favorite green so far. Course I am just learning the ways of tea. I love the flavor of it. The last order though wasn’t as good. Maybe it was older than the rest. I just got a new thermometer maybe it is reading a little low. Seemed a little bitter.
I think they just got a new shipment in. I think I will purchase from somewhere else for the next dragon well tea. Time to broaden my shopping of vendors.
