drank 2016 Hidden Song by Crimson Lotus Tea
109 tasting notes

My first tasting of today is hidden song by crimson lotus. I started by doing a single wash, there was almost no sediment and the leaves opened up enough that I decided a second wash wasnt needed.

The first infusion produced a very clear pale yellow liquor with a mild sweet and vegetal taste. I was very impressed with it was this flavorful on the first infusion after a single wash. The second infusion however was much better, a slightly darker liquor and a more intense sensations of the flavors and aroma as well as a slight wood and smoke aroma. Not too intense.. just pleasantly mild.

Third and fourth infusions were very slightly more intense, with the vegetal flavor coming out more strongly. I know Im missing some of the subtler flavors here, I can smell and taste them but cant quite identify what they are.

Overall the tea is nice , easy to drink, and refreshing. I highly recommend this for anyone looking for young sheng to drink now. I buy teas with the intention of drinking them now, not how they will age in a few years. And this one is sweet, mellow and vegetal and is very pleasant to drink.

Flavors: Smoke, Sweet, Vegetal, Wood
