drank Random Steepings by Various Artists
485 tasting notes

This review is for a tea I pulled out of the Puerh TTB which was labeled “Qianjiazhai 2015 Gu Hua Maocha” or something like that. I couldn’t really find it searching around the internet, so I’m just mentioning it here. The dry leaves smelled sweet and savory with some buttery and mushroom notes. After a rinse, it was more of the same thing – savory mushrooms, but also a bit of that wet hay thing going on.

The tea started out bittersweet in the front of the sip with a rather quick huigan. As I kept steeping it, the bitterness started to outweigh the sweetness, but it never got unpleasant in that way. The flavor was savory like the aroma. Notes of mushrooms cooked in butter and a very thick texture that matched well with the flavor. Pretty good stuff.

Flavors: Bitter, Butter, Mushrooms, Thick

Boiling 0 min, 15 sec 6 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 ;)
