82 Tasting Notes

Overall, Year of the Rooster was a good send-off to White2Tea’s 2017 Fall production line, and left a good impression as far as energy goes. I would recommend this tea to those who love strong characteristics of being thick and savory.

As many of my followers may know, I generally hate black tea and avoid it at all costs. I’ve never bought any for my own consumption, and usually get grossed out at the idea of it.

However, I got a care package from Kuura and they included a mini coin-size version of this tea and I tought to myself, “ew”. However, I didn’t want it to go to waste, and it did smell decent. So I thought “why not” and gave it a go. Below is a photo for reference…

After taking advice from Char from Oolong Owl and James (@shredsofmetal), I dropped this 7g coin into my 100ml pot and gave it a go. For my first steep, it tasted watery (since the leaves were still compressed very tightly). But as the infusion times went on, the tea kept opening up to this sweet, malt-like spice infusion that continued to expand in the mouth. After a few more infusions, the flavors began to settle down and became smooth and velvety. Along with lovely tasting notes and a beautiful texture, this tea also had amazing energy — which seemed to wake me up!

Thanks to this tea, I will no longer be apprehensive to trying black tea again in the future. I now feel confident.

Flavors: Malt, Peppercorn, Spices, Sweet

Had a similar experience as you except with their Discrete cake. It convinced me ripes have some merit. Will be interesting to see these guys grow their collection.

Little O first started out very earthy in taste. However, the longer Little O steeped for, the more it tasted like sweet orange peel. In fact, by the last infusion, the taste of orange peel was still going strong even though the tea leaves we’re spent. I reallty like this little coin because its convenient, and easy to drink. Even if oversteeped, this tea still turned out delicious.

One thing I liked about this tea is its accessibility, and had an overall pleasant texture to its body. Another thing I liked about this tea is its cleanliness and seemed to be pressed with great care. However, this beeng is compressed tighter than most other beengs that I’ve had. Overall, Vector is a great introduction to puer and is a tea I’d recommend to people who are new to sheng.

2017 Mengku Huang Shan Wild Arbor Raw Puer first started out light, which gave off wheat and hay like tasting notes. As the session progressed, a medicinal undertone became thicker as notes of wood and moss made their self known. One thing I liked about this tea was how the tasting notes continued to change throughout the session. Another thing I liked about this tea was it’s energy — which made me break out in a sweat. I really reccomend this tea becuase it’s easy to drunk, yet complex enough to make it worth your while…

One thing I liked about this variation of oolong is its unique taste that heavily reminded me of vanilla and coconut water — something I’ve never tasted in a green oolong before. Another thing I liked about this oolong is the number of steeps I was able to get out of it. I think that Zealong was a fun experience, mainly because I haven’t tried too many other oolong teas that were grown outside of Taiwan or China.

One thing I liked about Plum Beauty Ripe was how smooth the texture was, and if it wasn’t for the earthy tasting notes, you could have convinced me I was drinking a hong. Another thing I liked about this tea was its energy, because despite this teas humidness, it made me feel tea drunk. However, it was still really humid and could benefit from resting in the pumidor for a bit longer.

Snoozefest first opened up pretty strong to the grass and vegetal-like tasting notes, and showed signs of being very fresh. It later turned thicker as its tasting notes became complex with a certain degree of depth. Towards the end of the session, this tea tapered off very quickly and showed signs that it was still humid from pressing, and needs to rest.

Swinedog 76 is a new 2017 fall tea released by White2Tea, and is described as bitter and powerful. Well, this would be a correct assessment because Swinedog 76 sure carried one hell of a punch, and was bitter throughout the session. Despite its bitterness, I could see where this tea would be favored by a lot of puer enthusiasts, mainly because of the punch and body feels that it carries.
