670 tasting notes

[Spring 2021 harvest]

CS’s Zhu Ye Qing is a beautiful tea that’s both crisp and surprisingly warming for a green tea. It is well-balanced with sufficient complexity, pungent aftertaste and a relaxing cha qi.

The aroma is very fresh and vegetal (cucumber, broccoli, leeks) with just a hint of cream. Taste is a mix of nut oils (walnut), sweet grass with a nice bitterness (chicory) to it. There is no astringency basically. Other flavours on display include rice, sunflowers, green beans, and rapini. Liquor has a medium body and a buttery texture, which is really quite nice.

Flavors: Bitter, Broccoli, Cream, Cucumber, Green Beans, Leeks, Nuts, Rice, Sweet, Sweet, Warm Grass, Vegetable Broth, Vegetal, Walnut

Currently, I am a PhD student at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Ontario. Apart from teas and mathematics, I enjoy sports and traveling, as well as music of all kinds. Connect at https://rateyourmusic.com/~Togo

I have been a fan of green tea for a while and I started exploring other kinds of tea in greater depth only in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
