From Yunnan Sourcing

The aroma and taste of the tea and flowers together is just exquisite. They complement each other with a spicy and sweet taste that lasts 10+ infusions.

8g, gongfu, boiling water. The aroma of this tea: mushrooms and flowers, admittedly an odd combo but I love it. More of the florals come out with the wet leaf. The flavor is not as sweet as I thought it would be. It’s peppery actually. And yes – pickles. WHY PICKLES, WHY?

I have to come back to this tea another time, it’s just not working for me tonight!

Do you rinse

curlygc

Pu’ers, always. Not always with other kinds though, just depends.

boychik

i rinse all chinese teas. Pickles, love them. not sure abt tea

boychik

is it sour taste? maybe it has dill note thats why reminds you of pickles. i just looked at other reviews and all of them mention pickles. hmm

curlygc

I know, when I read the other reviews that mentioned pickles I thought they were mad! It’s not dill, maybe it’s just an odd sourness. I don’t know, I’ll have to come back to it another time.

From the Sheng and Shou TTB.

I picked a sample of this tea due to the unique addition of snow chrysanthemum. I’ve never tried snow chrysanthemum before and I liked the look of the cake with the little orange speckles.

It turns out, this is a nice, smooth, sweet ripe, with an odd taste. Kinda floral, kinda spicy, kinda like pickles as Sarsonator noted! I’m not a floral fan, but someone who is might like this. It has a good quality base. I guess I should have expected floral with it being studded with flowers and all. ;) Not bad, but not a flavor I’d seek out.

I’m leaving a note without a rating because I need to come back to this one.

It’s a lovely cake, loosely compressed. I measured out 5 grams, put it in my teapot and took a sniff. WHAT is that scent? Pause. Sniff. PICKLES!!!

But yeah, it smells like kosher dills. Before any of you smartasses suggest that I may be preggers, I assure you that I am not. :p

I brewed it up in spite of my nervousness, and the taste… also pickley. I admit to feeling a little run down, so it’s possible that I am getting sick and my sniffer may be off. I’m not congested this AM, but I feel like something is going on here. It’s a bit of a mystery.

If I try this again and get the same scents, I am going to send a few samples off to friends to see if it’s just me…

Lol, wonder who could help you elucidate this mystery!!

AllanK

I think you are not used to the taste of the chrysanthemum, its a different sort of earthy than puerh.

TeaNecromancer

I have had snow chrysanthemum loose and on its own and I thought it had a bit of a pickle-y dill aroma and taste, but it was pretty tasty and had other complex notes. I do admit I am curious to try this cake :P

SarsyPie

TTF – You’ll be getting some of this soon… don’t worry.
Allan – I would agree that I am not used to it, but pickles? LOL
Amanda – I am going to give it another chance for sure. It was just so unexpected and not what I was looking for in a morning tea! Maybe a snack tea would be better!!!

TeaNecromancer

Hehe good for sipping while nibbling on chips!

Ubacat

I had this tea too but in a slightly larger cake (100g). I know I didn’t like it that much either but can’t find my review on it.

SarsyPie

Yeah, this is a 100g cake. Maybe Steepster ate your note… seems to happen to lots of peeps lately!
