11 Tasting Notes
This is my first time ordering a whole cake, so I’m not too great at breaking off whole chunks at a time. Best I can do right now is pick off a few leaves at a time, with the end result being a bit like maocha.
Very sweet, not very bitter/astringent. The aroma is incredible, super sweet stone fruit and honey.
Brewed 1g/15ml with boiling water
Got this tea with Taiwan Sourcing intro pack. If you like Ruby 18, you’ll like this. Same menthol/minty taste. I found the Taiwan Sourcing brewing recommendations didn’t match this tea very well (3/3/4 min, 5g tea/100ml water) I had better luck when I did slightly shorter infusions, especially at the beginning (1/2/2/2 min) then finished it off with 3-5 min steeps.
