I’ll start this review by saying that I’ve never had a white peony that I actually enjoy so this may get some undeserved negativity at times, but I’ll try to keep it fair;

I’m brewing this sample gongfu in my ~90ml gaiwan (which I also got from Esgreen— they have some really nice teaware), the first steep was very strong and thick, almost overwhelmingly floral with a bit of a wet-earth, root kind of forest on a rainy day taste, it also makes me think of cacti but .. I’ve only eaten cactus a few times so I’m not really sure why I’m thinking of it. There’s definitely some cocoa notes at the back, and a bit of a zesty orange citrus flavour. At times this tea almost tastes artificial, but not overwhelmingly so, and I could certainly see many people enjoying this one,

I’m really liking Esgreen so far

Flavors: Astringent, Citrus, Cocoa, Flowers, Forest Floor, Orange, Orange Zest, Plants, Wet Earth

Hey :) welcome to my steeps!
I really only ever drink straight teas, every once and a while I might have something flavoured, but odds are I won’t ever write about any of those. All of my reviews are done using my 120ml gaiwan unless otherwise specified.

I’m mostly into Sheng, Red tea and Oolongs right now, but I also can enjoy greens and whites sometimes.

My cupboard is NOT up to date. I tried for a while, but it’s too much effort, and so many of the teas I have just aren’t on here and eh.

*This system is used on my first 100 reviews, I’ve decided not to rate teas anymore because I’m definitely not qualified to be objective about quality yet and it’s just pointlessly subjective numbers and that’s not really helping anyone
