Decided to drink a couple of teas tonight. First one was this Tai Ping Hou Kui. I wanted to drink Dragonwell a few months back with a few tea folks, but had no idea what to choose, considering I’ve had a single Dragonwell in my life. I spoke with the clerk at OTC—my local pu head—and they suggested to go with the ‘large leaf varietal.’
It’s difficult measuring the leaf out, mostly on the account that it’s massive. I eye balled it into my gaiwan, giving what I thought to be a heavy portion, but ended up having to add more after the first rinse/steep.
I noted that the tea was very much like turnip greens, buttered broccoli, salty, and at one point reminded me of cooked spinach. I liked it…Which is good, since I typically stay clear of green tea…
Flavors: Broccoli, Butter, Spinach
