hmm, I can’t remember if I tasted ming qian or she qian longjing. Thank you to Teavivre for the free sample! Backlog from last month. 2 tsp (half the package, about 3g I think?), medium temperature water, multiple steeps using smaller amounts of water, but brewed western style in a teapot.
These are the notes I took compiled from three of us doing a group tasting:
Fruity – reminds us of apricot or peach
Vegetal, but not grassy
Nutty, but no specific nuts
Very delicate, aromatic, quite flavourful
Slight sweetness like that of fruits
A good green for those who don’t enjoy greens. Two of us don’t like greens very much, but all three of us enjoyed this one.
Flavors: Apricot, Fruity, Nutty, Stonefruits, Sweet, Vegetal
