321 tasting notes

Reading through all the notes, the taste is covered and I agree with most… To me, it’s not a remarkable taste but a pleasant taste nonetheless. As far as energy, it was a comforting tea. Made my hectic day more tranquil. I basically drank it all day. I followed white2tea’s instruction since I only have two of them. I just dropped it in a mug and filled it up over and over.

It’s clean, no strong fermentation notes, slightly earthy, a little fruity here and there but there were very odd but good aromas as well. I think the main reason I enjoyed this tea is the peculiar mouth action. It became smooth but didn’t start that way at all. It had slight drying effects towards the end. It’s really a hard one to describe but I only saw one other that mentioned it.

I’d drink it again :).

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.
