From Sweetest Dew

Opening this tea you are greeted with an around that is softer and more lively than most qimens. While most Qimens tend to have a harder and heavier aroma, this qimen’s aroma has a soft brightness that is as enjoyable to smell as a boquet of flowers. There is a suppleness to the aroma which is the first sign that this qimen is different and you will probably find yourself smelling if a few times before you even take it out of the bag.

Once brewed you will immedietly taste the difference in this tea versus other qimens, its all in the body. Most qimens have an upfront mouth feel; bold sometimes a little heavy, They are forward and brass with their flavors. This qimen stays softer in the mouth. It has a body similar to a Huang Shan Mao Feng consisting of flowers and umami. There is a touch of malt and that classic Qimen flavor, but that too is woven into its soft body and is less demanding than other Qimens.

This Qimen red tea (black tea) is the personifcation of easy drinking ability. The unique body naturally leaves your mouth refreshed and comfortable after drinking. The aroma lingers for a moment allowing you to enjoy even when your cup is empty. This tea can be analyzed and appriecated for its small characterstics and complexities, or it can be enjoyed while you talk with friends. Full focus is not needed to enjoy this wonderful Qimen and the expirence it will bring you.

5.4g, 100 mL gaiwan

dry leaves have a slight sweet spice to them, as well as a slight sort of fruit in the way that some black teas seem to carry.

in prewarmed gaiwan, strong milk chocolate note.

wet leaves smell like any black tea leaves with a touch of sweet potato.

5s: classic slight yammy taste of black teas. Aftertaste is sweet and slightly lingering in a brown sugar sort of way. something also reminds me of celery.

10s: touch of bitterness w/ a sort of chocolate feel. A peppery hint.

15s and 20s: not much change.

stopped here. I have never been a fan of black teas (of the 红茶 sort) and this one didn’t change my mind. It’s the kind of thing where you know something is good quality-wise, but you just don’t like it anyway due to personal preferences. Tried it anyway since Sweetest Dew’s lineup is all worth trying, so overall, no regrets.

I gave up on black teas even when these are hybrids with Oolong’s, yet to come across the one with dark ones. There is nothing wrong with taste but you can’t fool your body. This one somewhat related to that
