Aroma: Damp earth
Liquor Color: Deep red

Notes: This one was dark, and super rich. A little too much so for me but I can see why people like it. I’ll give it a whirl again with less leaf and take it from there.

Aroma: Woody, deep, sweet, wet leaves, chocolate
Liquor Color: Deep rusty red
Liquor Flavor: Woody, smooth, light with next infusion the chocolate notes came out
Notes: From a person who doesn’t seem to like puerhs still, this sample changed my mind. It was so smooth, but light and the complexity of the flavors made me keep thinking what I’ll taste in the coming infusion. I could see myself drinking this.

drank Green Kukicha by Den's Tea

Aroma: Light roast, grassy, crisp, sweet
Liquor Color: Bright yellow-green
Liquor Flavor: Creamy, sweet, slight nuttiness, clean, smooth vegetal
Notes: When I first opened the bag, the aroma smelled so good. And the leaves were so pretty! Bold colors and straight lines. The wet leaf aroma was heavenly. This reminded me of a sencha in a less intense kind of way. Reminds me of a crisp spring day.

Aroma: Sweet, baked bread
Liquor Color: Amber
Liquor Flavor: Very smooth, rich, sweet, baked bread, warm
Notes: I decided that I like yunnan teas. This one is very comforting and oh so smooth! It’s rich, but not in a heavy mouth feel way. It reminds me of sweet bread rolls. This would be great for a cold day.

drank Decaf Sencha by Harney & Sons
110 tasting notes

Aroma: Light straw
Liquor Color: Darker yellow
Liquor Flavor: Smooth, light straw/grass
Notes: Not as flavorful as a regular good quality sencha. Not much of a taste going on. Very light. I was hoping for a pow of sencha flavor but this didn’t do the trick. Not bad, just not what I was expecting.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Gunpowder Green by Harney & Sons
110 tasting notes

Aroma: Roasty, wood
Liquor Color: Deep yellow
Liquor Flavor: Slight bitterness, smokey, woody, roasted
Notes: I got this to make Moroccan mint tea, and I can see how this works well with mint and sugar. It’s not something I would drink alone, this reminds me of yerba mate with the smokiness.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Bio

My love of tea began with a quest to find the best bubble tea. After some research I found an Asian inspired tea shop that happened to serve amazing bubble tea, as well as loose tea. I was really new to loose tea but my friend ordered jasmine pearl tea. Once I took a sip, I was hooked! Tea soon became my new passion.
