556 Tasting Notes
This is a very nice green tea it is light and grassy with almost sweetcorn type notes, creamy smooth like an Oolong with some astringency towards the end and lingering mouthfeel, this Green Tea has some Oolong nuances. The Aroma was typical grassy/vegetal green tea aromas, Overall a very Pleasant Tea for everyday drinking.
I’m not sure that I like this one as good as the one from Siam Tees but I’ll compare them together soon :) look at my blogsot for it I hope my pics turn out good! http://toadsteablog.blogspot.com/2012/10/lan-gui-ren-ginseng-oolong.html
This one is very nice also, I am a huge fan of the DMS Black Pearls and this loose leafe very is just as nice it its own ways, i feel it it have a lighter flavor profile very nutty and roasty also with hints of cocoa, the leaves are pretty to look at too that always important to me, and the Aroma of this tea is wonderful to it seems to have some citrus or even piney notes in the aroma i think that aroma come into play with the slight floral or bloomy notes of this tea, Very Good Tea to me.
I’ve had many ginseng oolongs lots of them seem to be on greener less fermented/oxidized this one i think is medium and it brews up a nice dark amber brew with id just how i like an oolong, The ginseng coat don’t cling to the leafe forever either allowing the leaf to open up much faster than most yet there is still plenty ginseng flavor to this tea I really enjoy this tea, i knew it would taste good i’m very glad to have orederd it.
I can’t smell ginseng for some reason at all ever but the aroma of this one at first brew was reminiscent to a heavy baked tgy. very nice tea, i love it, i can’t smell ginseng but i taste it sometimes :)
Very good tea, Starts off light and grassy with bitterness then goes a little darker almost like a ripe Puerh with no grassiness but still some bitter in a good way, it keeps getting a little darker each time but with a pretty consistent typical aged raw puerh flavor until finally it starts slowly fading away.This is one of those feel good teas to me that gave me the “High” “Happy” feelings that I love so much. I can enjoy this tea for its taste and that wonderful feeling. I’ll end up getting more of this one I’m sure :)
This is a very enjoyable tea, the dry leaves were bright and pretty, slightly broken(may have just gotten smashed in shipping) with a slight green tea like aroma, 1st steep was very light with a nice floral aroma, 2nd steep lost a little of the floral aroma and a very nice green taste to it with a nice “buttery” mouthfeel, 3rd steep was perfect the leaves had opened and the aroma went from floral to a more grassy type aroma with even better mouthfeel, the flavor was at its best also with a nice green tiguanyin flavor that we all love followed by a grassy vegetal aftertaste.Nice Tea :)
This one was nice to look at, Everybody took a sip but none of us actually drank it, We put it in the middle of the table in a wine glass and watched it open and enjoyed just looking at it :)
This tea smells as good as it tastes, almost almost smells like a chocolate bar laying on fresh cut grass lol weird i know but very good. Many steeps from this one too pending on how ya do it, i do short steeps from the gaiwan at least 8 times before it even starts to fade and then it still very good until about the 12th steep. I bump the rating on this one up a little bit :)
I drink this one daily so Ive stopped adding so many tasting notes to it lol but this morning i woke up with a dry sticky mouth and it was so damn good and refreshing to have an ice cold pitcher of this in the fridge, i stood right there at the fridge with the door wide open and drank a small cup :)
