drank Chunmee by Ovation Teas
59 tasting notes

I opened the package and was blown away by how good the dry leaf smelled. It’s deep, vegetal and a little smoky. I added a little sugar to my mug, because I wasn’t entirely ready to give myself over to the vegetal taste, which I was afraid was going to be really dominant. There’s a little bitterness, but for the most part, the sugar cuts it out. There’s a little bit of vegetation, too, but it’s more part of the tea. If you’re in the mood for it, it’s quite good. And the leaves expand so much on the second steep; it’s kind of amazing.

I’m a third-year senior studying linguistics and horticulture. In my free time, I like to enjoy a cup of tea with my friends. I’ve always loved tea, but now I’m starting to appreciate the culture. My favorite teas so far are oolong, white, green and rooibos.
