drank IRON GODDESS OF MERCY by Cha Le
450 tasting notes

Sipping this today, just a few grams in my clunky shiboridashi pot for something like half a minute. You get grass in the forefront, not anything too strongly vegetal. Floral in more the trail of each sip, but not the honey or fruity notes the tin boasts.

On a different note, I was shared some of Cultivate’s tieguanyin and adored it; I have to remember to pick some up myself at some point.

Did another steep with boiling water, and it brought out more vegetal notes, and almost masked anything floral. There is a bit more sweetness though; like a very green fruit.

Disclaimer: I work for Murchie’s Tea and Coffee as a taster and blender. I will avoid putting any ratings on teas from them from here on out.

A tea-drinking transgendered Canadian, university graduate, majored in geology (yes, “rocks and things”). I take most of my tea made straight into a mug, although occasionally if I’m not in a hurry (this isn’t often), I’ll have time to sit down with a pot or gaiwan. It’s the highlight of a good day.

My notes are pretty disjointed because I’m absent-minded, and I also keep a teatra.de blog for reviewing and rambling about tea books/publications, and an instagram for photos. Except nerding about tea production and history on both.

I’m a Doctor Who fanatic (Jon Pertwee, if you were wondering).
