drank Obsx Wuyi Yancha by White 2 Tea
321 tasting notes

Had this yesterday and didn’t take notes (sorry >.<), busy day. I have more so I will probably add notes to this one. In a nutshell, it was a wonderful roasted Yancha but its quite expensive $22 for 25g and probably won’t get it again. There are some fine YS that I liked just as much.

As far as the tasting profile, there was a strong presence of dried cherries with wet wood notes. It was very fruity. As I progressed I got lots of minerals, some floral notes and roasted barley at the end. It’s very smooth, a good mouth and throat feel. The dark cherry and then stonefruit notes remained throughout all the infusions, although lighter towards the end. Has a strong and lingering fruity aftertaste. I “gaiwaned” it (starting at 20s) but after the 4th or 5th infusion, I didn’t time it anymore. It remained flavorful until about the 12th infusion. Towards the end, it did get astringent.

Profile

Bio

Longtime casual tea drinker. In the past, mainly Sencha, Matcha. I’m currently into Oolong, Black & Pu’erh.

Gongfu cha is the main way I prepare my tea (gaiwan or Yixing teapot). I drink all tea… Usually unflavored. I do try some flavored now. I don’t like artificial sweeteners.

Favorite stores: TeaVivre, What-Cha, Mandala Tea, Yunnan sourcing, White2Tea, Lupicia. (Note: I love the teaware from TeaVivre and Yunnan sourcing.) Good experiences with 52Teas, Harney & Sons, Whispering Pines

Flavors I dislike are artificial flavors, especially artificial sweeteners. Strong lavender, violet, any strong floral-perfumey tea; cantaloupe, ripe papaya, sweet honeydew.

Can handle a little of the following: Rose, licorice, anise, jasmine, mint, spearmint, peppermint, leather.

Favorite flavors: Citrus fruits (especially grapefruit & tangerines), granny smith apple, bananas, guava, mango, tamarind, watermelon, stonefruits, all fruits except cantaloupe, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, milk, cinnamon, creme, bread, nuts, toasted, roasted.

I generally don’t add anything to my teas.

As I explore, my ratings may shift. 90+ generally means I’ll keep it on my shelf.
