Recent Tasting Notes
There was nothing especially bad about this tea. There was nothing especially great about it either. It was a fairly average but tasty ripe puerh. It had a fair amount of fermentation flavor that lasted four or five steeps. That flavor was a little bit unpleasant but I wouldn’t use the word fishy. A five pack of these bricks was very cheap so I wasn’t expecting too much. It had little bitterness and developed a sweet taste over the steeps.
I steeped this tea ten times in a 160ml Solid Silver Teapot with 15g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 minute.
Flavors: Earth, Sweet
This just got brewed in one large pot western style.When I buy loose ripe, unless it is something exceptional, it is to brew western style. This one is good for the price involved. I only paid $7.91 for 250g. Still it is an acceptable tea taste wise. It would probably be better gongfu style but I am in a bit of a hurry this morning. I may brew it again and put it in a thermos to take with me today.
I brewed this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water.
This particular green tea was recommended on a Steepster thread. I forget which one. It turned out to be pretty good and I don’t usually like unflavored green tea all that much. There is very little bitterness to this tea. There is a distinct grassy note but it is not overpowering. I would say it is a little bit creamy too, unusual for a green tea as I have had them. The color of the tea itself was very light yellow/green, almost clear. I steeped this in a slightly different manner than Western brewing and not quite Asian brewing. Instead I gave the first steep one minute instead of the three minutes I might have given it in Western brewing and a lot longer than a first steep in Asian brewing. Overall I thought this tea quite good and the price was right. $13.68 for 250g of tea. Can’t say I paid too much for this tea. Apparently he runs periodic sales and this was on sale.
I steeped this tea three times in a 220ml gaiwan with 5.1g leaf and 175 degree water. I steeped it for 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min.
Flavors: Creamy, Grass
Bought this with a recent order. That is more or less what they called it. This review is based on one steep western style. The tea is somewhat sweet, with a spicy note too. It’s got a fair amount of fermentation flavor left but not too much. It was very cheap being on sale when I bought it. I can’t say it’s spectacular but it is relatively good. Especially for the price I paid.
I brewed this once in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 30 seconds after giving it a 10 second rinse.
Flavors: Earth, Spicy, Sweet
