4 Tasting Notes
Autumn 2020 Tea: One of my favorite Jin Guan Yin. It’s beautifully fresh and floral, light in color and impossible to oversteep. Delicious, a bit drying in the back of the mouth but not juicy. Warm summer grass.
I’m very new to black tea. All I’ve had before came in a tea bag and honestly it was always terrible. So, I did very short steeps of this wanting to not recreate the acrid taste of liptons and other black tea nonsense. I was rewarded. This tea was warming and the caffeine was terrific. While fully oxidized teas will never be my preference, I can see myself drinking it when I need a morning kick or a midday boost.
Unflavored milk oolong. Terrific tea, you can brew it hotter with a bit more of a juicy feel or cooler for a smooth milky smooth. Very short brew times with hotter water. Steep over and over. Large leaves, very green.
