time for a full review:
so i decided to try it again, it for some reason was very good this time around.
when i open the package, it has a strong nutty smell to it :)
when i steep it, the aroma is less strong but still has that nutty smell. the taste is a bit like flowers but has more of a nutty taste.so i plan on ordering 100g of it from teavivre tomorrow. if you want to try a flower herbal tea, id give this one a shot.
Flavors: Flowers, Nuts
Thank you Angel for this sample. This tea reminded me of the fact that I absolutely LOVE oolongs! It has been a long time since I’ve had a cup of one. I love the bits of white-yellow flower petals mixed with some stems and rolled deep emerald tea leaves. The first steep was very bitter. I think I steeped it too long. The second one was perfect. The nice nutty floral and the warm green oolong is great! This is a delicious tea! It can last several steeps!
I wanted a black tea and have been drinking a lot of Golden Monkey lately, but I wanted something different so I opened my new(-ish) tin of Tan Yang Gong Fu. It was dusty like hay when you shake it out and had a slightly warm hay smell to it. It also stuck together a bit like leaves of hay do. It looked a lot like the Golden Monkey with the curly golden leaf mixed in with darker ones. “Looking good,” I thought to the tea, although the dustiness had surprised me. The liquor is dark red brown and clear and smells faintly malty. Although I used a lot of leaf, the aroma of the tea is still delicate but the flavour is quite direct. There is a hint of malt there, something of molasses and some cherry notes too. It is really smooth and there is greater depth than the Golden Monkey. It’s like the taste and aftertaste sink into your tongue and carry the experience all the way with them. I can actually feel this tea relaxing me, which is surely a good sign. There is a lot going on here and I think I need to drink more just to explore it further. Yes, that’s it. Better add this one to the buying list because I’m sure I shall want to explore it further when the current tin is done.
i plan to steep this multiple times & add notes as I go
aroma- light floral
1 min- quite bland & lacks taste
2 min- I think my water may have been a bit too hot,this cup was fairly bitter
3 min- A lighter smoother brew with no bitterness. I let the boiled water cool for 3 minutes instead of 2 before re-steeping the tea
4 min- smooth still lightly flavored
5 min- same as the 4th steep no change
