472 Tasting Notes

i enjoyed this tea for 2 days.
100ml gaiwan 5g 212F
Rinse, rest, 5/5/10/10/15/15/20/20/ etc
Wet leaves smell of prunes and apricots. this tea is very clean, burgundy clear, no off taste . It is sweet with some spice notes,maybe like cinnamon. had a tingling sensation. Also this tea is very creamy. call me crazy but i can compare all those notes to plum pudding.

Boiling 0 min, 15 sec 5 g 3 OZ / 100 ML

Sounds wonderful :)


Did you say Plum Pudding!? Yum! This sounds absolutely fantastic!


i think i’ll buy the whole cake.


Yeah, this is definitely going on my ‘wish list’… I’m just staring at it on the site right now. lol

Its so nasty outside, drizzly and windy. I needed some hot tea. Since my last review I fell in love with Lapsang Souchong, so smoke is not an issue anymore. In fact I like it, its very well done in Caravan. Enjoyed with croissant and cheddar. Yum!

205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

The only Lapsang Souchong I’ve had is Zen Tea’s, and while I didn’t hate it, I didn’t love it… I’m wondering if the smoky thing can really grow on you. Maybe I should give it more of a chance.
And, the croissant and cheddar sounds lovely!


This sounds great! And so does croissant and cheddar droooooool

this tea is rich bold satisfying, in other words everything I like in ripe Puerh.
Wet leaves smelled strongly of prunes.
1st steep produced clear burgundy color sweet tea. with the notes of leather, dried cherry and some wood. i also experienced some numbing of the tip of my tongue.
Later steeps were much darker but still clear. some other notes came along such as dried persimmon and faint tobacco. after several steeps I became sleepy – maybe tea drunk? I really enjoyed this tea, it was quite an experience.

Flavors: Leather, Stewed Fruits, Tobacco, Wood

Boiling 0 min, 15 sec

I vote tea drunk ;-)
Sounds like a beautiful tea…

This is a generous sample from TeaTiff – thank you so much.
I love good quality EG and this tea is the best of both worlds: my beloved yunnan black base and bergamot. It’s strong flavored but nothing artificial about this tea. Deep dark smooth and balanced. 205F 3.5 min produced excellent cup of afternoon tea. Resteep is good too. While bergamot loses its punch but still present. And Yunnans are famous for multiple resteeps.
It is comparable to American Tea Room EG Shanghai.
Thank you so much TeaTiff for the opportunity to try this tea.
On my wish list it goes along with Full-Steam.

1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML
