drank Royal Courtesan by Zhi Tea
1137 tasting notes

I decided to brew this “eastern style” – meaning I used a crap ton more leaves and lower steeping times. I used teavana’s perfect tea maker because I don’t have a yixing.
The downside to this is that I used almost all the tea I have of this and immediately felt bad because this was one of the nicer teas I ordered from Zhi.
The upside is that I actually get to REALLY taste the tea! And oh my god it was amazing. I definitely got the pine taste earlier in the steepings and then it came back later.
I’m glad I did this but I still regret using almost all of my leaves =(
I had a friend who tried a sip of it, and she told me a few days after that she wanted to have it again XD

My favorite teas are Taiwan high mountain, Anxi, Wuyi, and dancong oolongs. I also need my deep steamed sencha every now and then. I’m not totally into flavoreds but I’m always up for interesting flavors (like ATR’s Nirvana and Toasted Fig). My favorite natural flavors are roasted and floral.

I have a BA in Biochemistry from Smith College with a minor in Japanese. I have a Masters of Bioscience from Keck Graduate Institute in Claremont, CA.

I love J-R&B and J-Urban and used to do a radio show on WOZQ Northampton, MA. I also play WoW (Aireene on Proudmoore).
