5 Tasting Notes
This tea was a revelation for me. Such a fragrant tea, smells like an orange macaron with hints of clove and vanilla which would usually turn me off since I’m not a big fan of sweet teas yet this tea was refreshing and smooth with just the right amount of sweetness.
I have mixed feelings about this tea. I do love the balance between the earthiness of the pu-erh and the coconut flavor. I also enjoyed the creaminess of the tea but it was a bit too sweet for me, more of a dessert tea. Would definitely recommend for those that like sweet teas.
What a magical experience! It was my first time tasting a Longjing tea so I can’t really compare it to others but I loved it! It gave me a sensation of home, possibly because it had an aroma of a sweet corn & milk beverage I used to drink in my childhood. The tea is buttery, slightly vegetal & sweet (hits the spot), fresh and nutty. It’s the type of tea that I can drink at any hour of the day. I steeped it for 2.5 min at 70C and for the 2nd infusion, I steeped it for 5 min at 75C. The second infusion felt milder than the first but it was still great!
