I really enjoyed this tea. Lots of fruity flavors in the early-mid steeps. Possibly peach, though at times I thought it might have been like pear too. Fruitiness is accompanied by a creamy texture and sweet vanilla-like finish. After the fruit flavors fade, a sort of mineral flavor takes over for them. This flavor is extremely smooth, and if one uses their imagination, almost comes across as a more muted fruit flavor. I really liked this tea, but do have a bit of trouble coming up with descriptions for the flavors. The roast on this tea was apparent in the aroma, but I did not pick up on it at all in the flavor of the tea. I think it more added to the great overall sweetness of this tea. I previously tried with water at 190 degrees, but felt like I wasn’t getting nearly all this tea had to offer. Doing this session at 205 degrees confirmed this suspicion, and I will try with boiled water next time.

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 ;)
