3 Tasting Notes
This tea has been my favourite tea since I bought it, 2 years ago. I bought it from a tea shop that sources directly from the tea farms in WuYi, but I din’t even know what tea was it and where it was from, by that time.
I have fallen in love with this tea by the first time I drank it, but I could realize it got better by each steep, since I didn’t even know which tea it was.
I started brewing it with 90ºC water, but it got better after some steeps, when the water was not that hot anymore. Now, I usually brew it with 80ºC water to open the leaves and then 75ºC to appreciate it. When brewed with 75ºC water, it has almost no biterness or acid taste and a very pleasant but not exaggerate honey notes, then a light lingering astringency at the end.
Flavors: Astringent, Floral, Honey
I got this tea in a tea swapping with a tea friend I met in a tea trip!
As he said, it is not the kind of tea I usually drink, since I am not a big fan of blended/scented teas, but this blend has a good quality (better than most of the ones I have tried before).
Flavors: Cake, Fruit Punch, Sakura
I have been drinking this tea at least once a month for the last 6 months. I loved it’s nutty flavor at the first time I tryied it. Last month I had the opportunity to visit the farm of the family that produces the tea, in Registro, Brazil. Now, the tea has not only a pleasant taste but also good memories linked to it.
It has a lasting caramel and nuts aftertaste, with almost no acid notes. An authentic brazilian tea, full of identity and history.
Flavors: Almond, Caramel, Chocolate, Cookie, Nuts
