Ok so I decided to review these two together because I thought that they would be similar but I was kinda wrong about that.
View my Blog Post here http://toadsteablog.blogspot.com/2014/07/house-tieguanyin-lots-1-and-2-by.html
They are slightly similar due to the roasty and caramel notes But the #2 seems darker roasted and kinda complex.
It has a lot going on without too much going on and everything that is going on in this one is wonderful!
I’m just going wing it here because I’m not really sure how to describe all the notes and hints and flavors that I am getting from this one.
I cant really compare it to #1 like I thought I was going to be able to.
I’d have to compare it to a maybe a Da Hong Pao and an Amber Oolong at the same time, maybe even to a dancong I’m really not sure but I know this is surely a roast that I love.
Since I’m not really sure how to describe it I’ll post all of the different
notes that I get from this one some of them may even seem to contradict each other.
The notes I get are Roasty, Caramel(comparable to the caramel in #1),mineral, fruit(grape and peach, citrus even), champagne or wine, earth, wood, grape leafe, Darjeeling, sweet, honey, slight vegetal, slight astringent, grape leafe, wheat/rye, and ? i dunno.
Sound not so good to you?? too much?? not really honestly all of these notes appear at different times in the tea or as it cool or as it steep longer.
Ya a little complex to me but in a really good way. I think anybody could love this Tea and I bet you get some of these same notes and more, probably some notes that I couldn’t pick upon or just didn’t know how to describe. Sorry I know this isn’t a very good review but it is the best I could do because i just got so much out of this one. It is good steeped light and it is better steeped long and strong, but it never gets too strong. some slight astringent but no bitter at all. Delicious tea :)
Also it is very smooth and sweet, even better for a rainy day like today.
Oh this one isn’t released just yet but it is Coming Soon!!! I was to get a taste before it is out because Brenden is cool like that ;)

I like the “it has a lot going on without too much going on” part

Thomas Edward(Toad)

:) it does have lots going on to me, it seems to change as the more i drink it

Thomas Edward(Toad)

I feel like this is a really horrible review from me tho, I just wasnt sure how to review it, every time i thought i had it good it seemed to change on me and then i didn’t know what to do or say about it, i tried tho :)

MzPriss

I don;t think it’s horrible at all. Because that happens to all of us with different tea, and we all understand that – it just coneys that experience and still makes it sound like something I want to try.

Sorry for the worst typing ever.

This review is great tommy, I always call roasted oolong my chameleon teas…that’s exactly the reason, they are hard to describe. I’ve had only lot no.1 and loved it, this one sounds wonderful too!

Thomas Edward(Toad)

I love the ones like this, i think this one outdoes the first one a bit :) chameleon teas, i like that ;)
