misty peak’s Spring 2016 sheng puerh review.
Ru Yao dragon teapot gongfucha.
1x medium rinse
Dry leaf: musty, green.
Wet leaf: honey, green, metallic, sweet.
Light steep: I taste/smell;
slight —>cream, smoke. Light -→ honey, green. Vegetables.
Medium steep: I taste/smell;
light —> cream, smoke. Medium -→ spices, honey, green.
Heavy steep: I taste/smell;
slight —> cream, smoke.
Medium -→ honey, spices. Strong metallic.
All in all a very yummy tea. Nice tastes and cha qi. I rate a 90 because there’s not enough smoke, and the metallic kick at the end was not too nice.
Many thanks to misty peak teas for this free sample.
PS: i guess this is not a good tea for my stomach. i had some burning in my lower gut after drinking this tea. i’m not deducting points or saying this tea is bad for you. i’m just saying “people, please remind me to never drink sheng younger than 3 years, thanks.”
Flavors: Cream, Green, Honey, Metallic, Smoke, Spices, Vegetables
