5 Tasting Notes
Grown in a biodiverse, wild environment, this tea is really teaming with energy. Nice vegetal and floral notes, quite patient. Little astringent.
Longer tasting note here:
Smooth and sweet tea. Though its jasmine flavoured, its not overpowering. Its a constant companion that helps highlight the sweetness of the tea. Its what you would hope to get from a white tea, that being nice flavour and aroma.
Extended review and how i brewed it:
Flavors: Floral, Jasmine, Sweet
Mellow grassiness and vegetal flavors, and pleasantly sweet. For those that like a vegetal taste that is not too overpowering, this can be a good tea. This green tea is surprisingly patient, with the vegetal taste being a steady companion for many infusions. Really a bargain for this price point, its worth at least getting a sample. Maybe this tea will surprise someone and become an everyday tea?
Longer review, with info on how I brewed it:
Flavors: Grass, Sweet, Vegetal
A nice sample of Big Red Robe that has a fairly mellow smokiness in the initial infusions, with an interesting taste of wet slate in the middle infusions. Fairly dynamic flavor range. I brewed this with a gaiwan, and have found even better results brewing it with a yixing. I have a friend that has brewed it western style, and the first infusion is the best, with the subsequent ones being considerably less enjoyable. So brewing style really has a big effect on extracting this teas full potential. If done well, its quite satisfying.

Nice vegetal and floral taste in the initial infusions that is not overpowering. The delicate taste also transforms into a nice sweetness in the later infusions. Very delicate buds that brews into a nice liquour, and has a nice mouthfeel.
I brewed this sample of Pi Lo Chun using a gaiwan.
