I have received a well packed and presented bunch of samples from teabento (thank you very much) and this has been the first one I tasted.

I have steped it as follows:

-30sec – 80ºC: Sweet, clear colour, reminds me of grapes and floral. This is a soft white peony, quite good for what I have tasted until now.

- 1min – 70ºC: a bit stronger, still sweet and floral, the grapes notes are nearly dissapeared.

-1.5min – 60sec: a bit stronger, still floral but a bit astringent at the same time, less sweet.

I still have enough tea for another shot so I’ll try to vary the steps time and temperature in order to see how it evolves.

I’ll wait until the next shot (tomorrow) in order to give a veredict.

Flavors: Floral, Grapes, Sweet

180 °F / 82 °C 0 min, 30 sec 4 g 3 OZ / 90 ML

I love every kind of tea, but my ABC are:

-Black: for a good shot in the morning, I love assam ctc and strong english breakfast (both with milk).

-Green: for spring and summer are the best in my opinion, I love Long jing and an ji bai pian.

-Oolong: For those days when you need something not to strong and not to weak. Nothing like Darjeeling and Nilgiri oolongs.

-Pu erh: For autum and winter. I love shou pu, I love it to be mellow, medium bodied or with chocolate notes.

I also have this blog where I upload some reviews of what I drink: http://finetealeaves.com/
