368 Tasting Notes
I’m working on drinking down my green teas/blends. This tea has a lot of cinnamon and other warming spicyness to it. The spicyness isn’t peppery. You can taste the base green underneath.
My purchase is getting old as this was a more well rounded tea earlier. I liked this tea, but all my green teas get neglected so I won’t be repurchasing. Sipdown. 80
Flavors: Cinnamon, Spices
I used Oolong Owl’s tea spreadsheet today and cataloged all my tea. I found the result to be interesting. I now know what I have. Over 230 teas. Which means only 50% have been entered into the cupboard.
Most bought category: Oolongs then blacks.
Least bought: Green and what I do have is old. Like these teas were once green, but now look grey old. These will be my next sipdown targets.
Dry leaf smells fruity and pretty fresh – coming out of the vacuum package from the tea club.
2 min 185F – way nuttier, more vegetal.
I’ve been drinking a daily drinker quality long jing at work – this has more oomph to it, even 2 years (2 years!?? according to the other reviews) out. There’s a sweet end note. I may have overleafed this tea a little, but I still have a cold and taste is off a bit.
Flavors: Nutty, Sweet, Vegetal
