This tea was part of a Tieguanyin sample pack I bought from Hello Teatime for 11/11. I think it’s the first green tgy I’ve actually enjoyed. I wasn’t too excited after smelling the leaf, which had the typical green tgy floral aroma, but it turned out to have more to offer than just that generic flavor. Maybe it helped that I used boiled water. Boil all the oolongs!

Lots of floral going on, but enough fruity flavors joining up in the finish to keep it interesting. I didn’t get the weird sourness which sometimes puts me off of tieguanyin either. The texture was pleasantly smooth. Simple and enjoyable.

Flavors: Floral, Fruity, Green, Sweet

Boiling 0 min, 15 sec 5 g 3 OZ / 100 ML

A bit about myself: 22 years old, college grad (Double major in Anthropology and History). I plan to make a career of archaeology and hopefully travel (much of) the world in my days.

I enjoy many things aside from tea, including gaming, mixing cocktails, reading, watching anime, and painting miniatures.

My favorite type of tea is sheng puerh. Particularly younger stuff, if only because I haven’t gotten the chance to taste much of anything aged. I also really like oolong (Taiwanese, Wuyi, Dancong, etc.) and Japanese Green Teas. I do also enjoy most other kinds of tea, but they aren’t what I normally buy. I’m not a huge fan of shou puerh, black tea, or flavored blends, with few exceptions.

I really like interacting with the tea community, so if you ever want to talk or swap teas or anything, feel free to shoot me a message or something. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Probably ;)
