347 Tasting Notes
Tea Club – been sitting out since I got it.
Gaiwan 100ml, boiling water
10s – earthy and a little sweet, light orange color
After this steep I picked the ball apart, I probably should have waited or let it work itself apart, but I was impatient. Liquor went super shou dark on the next steep.
10s-earth, bit of dark, sweetness
10s – solid earth, hella dark
10s, 10s, sweetness getting longer
More steeps after this but I stopped recording notes. Nice accessible shou
Flavors: Earth, Sweet
10s- hay, sweet, thick, floral aftertaste
10s, 20s- floral, sweet like clover blossoms, thick; ball is still pretty together
30s- lost the sweet spot, more woody, drier
I went back to 20s – floral, but deeper, darker, honey
20,20,20, 6 steeps on and still some dry leaf?! I’ll need to break this up a little more next time.
Flavors: Floral, Hay, Honey, Sweet, Thick
10s- wood, vanilla, black tea underneath, soft, wood not oaky (softer) (here I couldn’t read my own handwriting – I wrote not oaky but it looks like not ooky) Just marveling at that.
20s- more woody as it goes longer
I don’t like this blend as well as some of the others. It’s for sure the wood in the blend – just not my thing in drinks – tea, beer, or wine.
Flavors: Oak wood, Vanilla, Wood
Part of the White2Tea Club.
Smells good, very flowery.
5 g/100ml 212F
10s – pretty orange color, flowery
10s – really good, smooth
I drank these really fast. 20s, 20s, 20s, ?, ?, am I on steep 8?
starting to get sweeter. it got astringent on the last steep that may have gone for a while as I forgot it was steeping.
I had this westren style on Thursday morning last week when I was off from work. I got three steeping out of it but probably could have gotten more if I didn’t have to go to work. I was sad I had to leave the leaves though.
Flavors: Floral, Smooth, Sweet
Sample pouch of this I had over two days. I was originally interested in this as a possible replacement for Teavana’s Black Dragon Pearls, but wasn’t willing to order it because of the large ounce order size (2oz).
Good but not great, a bit malty and fruity. More of a daily drinker – work tea for me. I still might get some for that reason if I end up ordering from Teavivre at some point.
Flavors: Fruity, Malt
