First impression from a gongfu session with 190 degree water is awesome! Very floral flavors, with a delightfully sweet finish. This sweetness remains in the mouth for a couple minutes after drinking the tea, and is accompanied by a grassy taste in the mid-late steepings. I wish I had more practice with tasting as it would be neat to be able to pick out the different floral notes in the tea, as were noted on Mountain Tea’s website. Good body to it, especially in steeps 2 and 3, with an alluring crispness.

Bio

A bit about myself: 22 years old, college grad (Double major in Anthropology and History). I plan to make a career of archaeology and hopefully travel (much of) the world in my days.

I enjoy many things aside from tea, including gaming, mixing cocktails, reading, watching anime, and painting miniatures.

My favorite type of tea is sheng puerh. Particularly younger stuff, if only because I haven’t gotten the chance to taste much of anything aged. I also really like oolong (Taiwanese, Wuyi, Dancong, etc.) and Japanese Green Teas. I do also enjoy most other kinds of tea, but they aren’t what I normally buy. I’m not a huge fan of shou puerh, black tea, or flavored blends, with few exceptions.

I really like interacting with the tea community, so if you ever want to talk or swap teas or anything, feel free to shoot me a message or something. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Probably ;)
