Recent Tasting Notes
Da Hong Pao smelled sweeter than it tasted. When I had it, it was very bitter, and it’s one of those teas where if you like it you’ll like it or if you don’t you don’t. I did end up trying multiple cups of it because each cup tasted different each time. Towards the end when I had my 4th cup it started tasting sweet, but not enough to make me want to drink it again.
20g tea (suggested 7g / 85ml)
newly whittled stick
roasted (chest?)nut (barley? millet?)
summer on a northern coast:
forest giving way to cliff, overlooking dried seaweed on warm rocks and strewn through warm sand
qi is upward, a little much like a big, overexcited, jumpy puppy
