Sipdown no. 13 of 2021 (no. 633 total). A sample.
I didn’t have enough of this to steep in the Breville western style so I had to add a bit of tieguanyin to it to make up the difference.
My ATR samples are definitely dwindling, and one might say it’s about time since ATR went out of business years ago. But I’ve hung on to the higher rated ones because that is how I am. And it makes me sad to see them go. But all things must come to an end.
Mostly what I’m getting in my Western-style au revoir to this is asparagus, with a hint of nuts. I think the rating is about right.
I’m trying to remember if I have others of this variety in my stash. If not, that’s too bad because it’s a nice change of pace from other green oolongs.
