I went to the Aroma Tea House to pick up my “Monkey Picked” Tieguanyin and got treated to an awesome tea tasting there with this Wu Yi Rock Tea! I have had a sample of this type of tea from a friend before and mentioned that I was interested in getting some to try. She made the tea ’’Gongfu" style in a gaiwan? I think (forgive my lack of tea knowledge—I am still learning!) We (another customer and I) tasted three steepings of the tea! I walked out with 100g of each tea! Thank goodness another customer was waiting otherwise I might of ended up with more teas!!
This Wu Yi Rock tea has a lovely roasted, smokey flavour and aroma.

I am pretty new to trying different types of loose leaf teas. Growing up we only ever had Chinese restaurant tea or bagged orange pekoe. Later on I tried genmai cha at the Japanese restaurants and added that permanently to my tea cupboard.

So far, I like oolongs and black. Most often I drink straight teas but I do like some flavoured ones as long as they don’t taste fakey or chemically. I would like to try more greens, whites and more Rooibos’ as well as anything that doesn’t have caffeine in it to add to my cupboard.

An attempt at a rating system:
90-100 worthy of being permanently stocked in my cupboard
80-89 great tea would love to have in my tea cupboard but probably in smaller quantities
70-79 very nice tea but I don’t necessarily have to have it
60-69 will drink it but not choose to stock it
50-59 prefer not to drink it unless it is all I have
<50 total miss for my tastes
