91 Tasting Notes
This is the only tea I have had from Wuyi Origin that was just a little disapointing, not bad, just not as amazing as the others. I am sure this is me, since I don’t care as much for this style of tea.
Nose; Sweet, light, hazelnut, tulse.
Palate; slight floral and vegetal, very much like a Taiwan Oolong or a Tie Guan Yin,
A classic fruity Da Hong Pao with some nice complexity.
Nose; very strong fruit, lychee, raspberry, tulse, toasted nori, plumeria, citrus, ginger, galangal, slight herbal note.
Palate; plum, blood orange, redwood, limestone, strawberry, galangal, a bit dry, limestone.
Another stellar tea from Cindy! I have to say that she ( or whoever she has doing this ) is a master at tea firing/roasting, her teas never seem to be over roasted, and yet they have just the perfect processing to bring out flavor and aroma while insuring at least some longevity. I even tried to intentionally " burn " a couple and they held up really well. Another plus since this means the teas are very forgiving regarding brewing.
Nose; Vanilla, hazelnut, cream, very light boiled greens, plum, violets, incense, round.
Palate; light berries, cassis, vanilla, slight malt, hazlenut, chestnut, very light chamomile, slight spice.
I found this tea to be one of the best black teas I have tasted.
Nose; beautiful florals, rose, gardenia, light tulse, parsnip, orchid, very light ozone, like a forest after a rain. delightful.
Palate; similar to nose with the addition of rambutan and plumeria, and a sparkling character.
Nose; Strong fruit, lychee, peach, red raspberry, toasted nori, plumeria, jasmine.
Palate; Slight blood orange, nice sweetness at back of palate, slight cinnamon and allspice, very light toasted flavor, round, brothy,, violets,
This is a really wonderful tea and if you like fruity this one is for you.
