166 Tasting Notes
Smells like I expect wuyi to smell: roasty, earthy/minerally/hot-rock-like, perhaps a little nutty.
Taste is similar, plus I am getting some notes that remind me of caramel, maybe even raisin.
I am getting a surprisingly mild mouthfeel considering the robust aroma. Pretty good deal on price, I’d buy it again.
I usually like to steep oolongs at a lower temp, but just a small amount of leaves at 200F for a minute or two or more seems to be best for me with this tea.
This tea is kind of hard to describe, but really good. I’m getting nutty, vegetal, seaweed-like flavors (but in a pleasant, unharsh way). Some other people say it reminded them of miso soup, which I guess I can sort of see in that it has a nice thick, broth-like mouthfeel, but the taste doesn’t make me think of that.
