245 Tasting Notes

Aromatic, smooth mouthfeel, rich and bold flavor, slight astringency, honey yet bittersweet, however, a little sharp for me. It’s balanced & pretty delicious cup of tea. First time trying it today. I’m on my 10th infusion (gongfu) and it’s still good.

No bitter notes, just soothing, light, milky, flowery, creaminess. Very mellow taste, milky aroma. Great morning tea. I only wish I could get more infusions out of it. It loses taste pretty fast.

The smell of grapefruit alone is worth trying this tea. That is… If you love grapefruit as I do. When you open the bag, it’s heavenly to me. After steeping, the top of my teapot smells sooo good, mixture of grapefruit, orange, citrusy. Grapefruit is probably my favorite aroma. It’s medium to high roasted, taste something spicy, chai-like. It’s woodsy, full-bodied, rich. Not tart although you taste the grapefruit.

Flavors: Grapefruit, Orange, Peach, Spices, Wet Wood

Profile

Bio

Longtime casual tea drinker. In the past, mainly Sencha, Matcha. I’m currently into Oolong & Pu’erh.

Gongfu cha is the main way I prepare my tea (gaiwan or Yixing teapot). I drink all tea… Usually unflavored. I do try some flavored now. Just as long as it doesn’t have any artificial sweetener.

Favorite stores: TeaVivre, What-Cha, Mandala Tea, Yunnan sourcing, White2Tea, Lupicia. (Note: I love the teaware from TeaVivre and Yunnan sourcing.) Good experiences with 52Teas, Harney & Sons, Whispering Pines

Flavors I dislike are artificial flavors, especially artificial sweeteners. Strong lavender, violet, any strong floral-perfumey tea; cantaloupe, ripe papaya, sweet honeydew.

Can handle a little of the following: Rose, licorice, anise, jasmine, mint, spearmint, peppermint, leather.

Favorite flavors: Citrus fruits (especially grapefruit & tangerines), granny smith apple, bananas, guava, mango, tamarind, watermelon, stonefruits, all fruits except cantaloupe, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, milk, cinnamon, creme, bread, nuts, toasted, roasted.

I generally don’t add anything to my teas.

As I explore, my ratings may shift. 90+ generally means I’ll keep it on my shelf.
