56 Tasting Notes

I don’t often gravitate to purple leaf teas but with this one a 100g bag didn’t last long.

Golden red rusty orange soup, sweet and woodsy with vibrant citrus, notably of grapefruit.

Pushing later steeps there was a pleasant bitterness.

As this is my first HK humid stored tea I don’t have anything to compare it to, once I have tried others I may edit my note. This is a good learning experience.

The aroma of the dry and wet leaves was musty.

The tea soup reminded me of wet bark after a rain with Yiwu sweetness.

The dry leaves of this tea are visually appealing, golden and light brown.

They made a lovely malty first cup of the day, brewed in my clay Nixing teapot.

After reading reviews for this ripe I bought a brick , happily the people who wrote about it were spot on, the tea is clean and delicious.

The price has increased over the years but it is still a good buy.

Spring 2017 production.

The description is accurate, “malty, floral, sweet and slightly bitter all at once.”

The tea soup is the color of dried apricots.

Taste is smooth, malty and sweet; the aroma is also malty and reminds me of Ovaltine.

Towards the end of my session with this tea it darkened and gained a slight bitterness.

My third Lao Cha Tou which will be the last for awhile as I am enjoying teas with more complexity.

That said I do like these tea nuggets which are good value for a smooth comforting brew on a cold day.

This is a delicious white tea for a great price.

I have other teas made from Camellia Taliensis, this white can take the heat.

A mild roast with slight bitterness. There is a lingering taste and aroma I don’t recognize, perhaps it is that of longan.

I have two packets of this tea and will keep one for further aging. I may have a different experience next time, the first pack has been a daily drinker.

Some time ago Jasmine tea was one of my favorite teas to sip from bone china in a tea shop. Unfortunately as it became popular the trend was to add cheap and artificial oils. Gag worthy.

I noticed this tea at Yunnan Sourcing and ordered 50g, good price and cross fingers.

Glad I did as this tea lasts a long time and the scent and flavor of Jasmine is just right.

Although my tea cupboard has changed since I found Pu-erh and Wuyi, at times a trip down memory lane is fun.
