(Backlog from last night…could not post…steepster was acting out… again…sigh)
This is tea of the night…
I took advantage of Tao Tea Leaf’s 50% off x-mas sale.
I had already tried some of their rock oolongs (their Da Hong Pao is excellent) but had passed on this one.
Boychik reminded me to buy some this time around, so based on her exquisite tastes, I have ordered 100g.
First tasting tonight…
Whoa! This is shockingly good.
Sweet, creamy, nutty, deliciously roasted but not sharp or bitter at all.
It renders a nice mineral mouthfeel as all Wuyi do.
It’s a bit floral, and a little fruity, stone fruits. But mostly, I get big notes of roasted almonds.
Now, I can’t silence the fact that the dry leaves smell like…um….cannabis. You were right about that dear Boychik. Not that I have ever smoked any of course (wink, wink)
Toa Tea Leaf doesn’t disappoint…high quality stuff. This bag will not last very long.
I brewed gongfu and I got several delicious steeps.
