drank 2017 Mang Fei by gylxtea
318 tasting notes

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a tasting note; I’ve been working a lot and when I have time to drink I’ve been reaching for Yunnan blacks that I’ve already logged.

I haven’t finished my Gylx Tea samples; despite being good I just haven’t been in the mood for young sheng lately.

This one is lightly bitter with a prominent shengy gasoline/alcohol note alongside green wood, minerals, and pine. Later steeps mellow out with a slight honey sweetness. Somewhat generic and not as good as the Bang Dong but an enjoyable brew nonetheless.

Flavors: Alcohol, Green Wood, Mineral, Pine

Tea addict since around 2011.

My favorites are pu’erhs, blacks/reds, and roasted oolongs, but I have a growing interest in good whites, and sometimes enjoy greens.

Currently trying to get an education, working a part time job, expand my ceramics/pottery skills, and trying to make the best of existential crisis.

Other than tea I love the outdoors, ceramics, guitar, and diy/building things.

I started a tea blog in February 2018, though admittedly I haven’t updated it much lately.

When I give a tea a numerical rating it’s simply meant to reflect a balance of how well I enjoyed the tea and how it compares to others of the same style. I don’t follow any universal rating criteria, and my ratings are mainly meant for my own use, to remember what I though of a tea and if I want to repurchase.
