911 tasting notes

It’s been a while since I’ve had a Chinese green so this was a bit shocking to my palate, especially because this seems like a pretty bold Chinese green – I just wasn’t prepared for it! It’s very fresh and vibrant tasting – very grass/hay tasting with a spike of something sharp that I sometimes read as mineral-y and sometimes read as nutty. Even reading that note as mineral-y, this still isn’t briny/salty which is a note I get from a lot of Chinese greens. Instead, it’s more sweet with almost a fruity taste to it. It has lots of flavors going on and has a great fresh and bold taste (for a Chinese green). Quite lovely! Thanks so much to TeaEqualsBliss for sharing this one with me!

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.

1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
