13 Tasting Notes
Nice tea and definetely a good buy.
I got a sample of this tea then actually bought some. It is sweet, but not as sweet as some, and I decided to roast it a bit longer in the over after trying it a few times and noticing it wasnt as roasted as I liked. I may have not given it the best roast, but it defintely was more to my liking after.
It was nice, vegetavive and a bit floral.
Try it, I think you will like it.
Ps- Longer brews are better for this tea, not too hot
Probably one of the best Pu’ers I have had. The price was really fair and it came with very specific instructions on how to brew it, so I actually followed them! Go me.
The insctructions said to pour out the first 2-3 washes, but I was curious(why not) and drank them anyway. They were really good! Why am I dumping these out? I think it is a time when the leaves are opening up and cleaning them and whatnot.
I drank the tea in a very quite room, and the tea made the room quieter, but brighter and made me more aware. It calmed me down a lot. The first 3-5 brew were very cherry/apricot like and I brewed it all the way until the 12th or so pot. It got sweeter as time went by, but not sweet overall. A really complex tea: basically meaning it had a lot to it.
I loved it, yay!
PS- I made it in a gaiwan, and steeped it for up to a minute a few times to just try it out, but mostly its best around 10-15 seconds.
For sure a sheng from what seems like Autumn months.
It had a bit of sweetness to it that reminded me of some green teas, but it was much more deep than that and not as fun but more complex for sure. I am a lover of ALL pu’ers, as long as they are good…which ALL are not, haha.
This is a well above average tea though. The deep tobacco with a little sweetness and a lot of life to it…lasts a while. I give it a 85% or so as it could have had a bit more to it being that it is 6-7 years old…but still a FINE TEA!
SO surprised to like this tea. Usually I go to Taiwanese teas for Oolongs or go to India for assams…what a funny switch!
Very bold, chocolatey carmel taste. A hint of vanilla here and there.
BOLD, is the best word to use. yes, Bold.
I like their teas usually, and this tea is no exception. A great tea. Thank you
If you like floral/spring teas, this tea is for you.
I am not big on the floral teas, but bought this last week thinking that it would be a bit more fresh/spring like as opposed to Floral and young. That isnt a bad thing at all, just not for my taste. I like the darker roasted ones, mmmm.
Quality and whatnot: great. Its a fine tea and I shared it with some ladies who really liked it. So I gave it to them :)
Is it annyoing if I say I agree with ALL the good comments. haha. It is a great tea. I bought about 5 Ooolongs this month and this was my favorite. 100% for me.
Write me if you have any questions. SO GOOD.
Also tried this iced. Mmmmmm. Didnt need long to open up and bring out the flavor. 30-60 seconds was plenty
