7 Tasting Notes
I was really impressed this tea!
This tea is about jasmine. Gentle powdery and sweetness. Flowery notes are very intensive from first to 6th step. I got more hay and camphor’s notes in further steps. No bitterness at all.
I’ve started from 5 sec
10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 30sec, 40 sec, 50 sec, 1min, 1min 30 sec, 2 min
Overall, I was enjoining this tea in every step. Clear and pungent. Smooth and round. Flowery and sweet. Very notable ‘qi’ from the 3rd step and gentle huiguan. No complexity but the perfect candidate for everyday puerh.
Flavors: Astringent, Flowers, Hay, Jasmine, Smoke, Sweet
Very pleasant sheng puerh for a beginner. No bitterness, gentle astringency, fresh notes of hay and camphor. No complexity.
I’ve done many steeps, all were pleasant and refreshment.
I can highly recommend this tea both for a newbie to puerh world and experienced one whose quest is in fresh puerh in ‘green tea’ style
Flavors: Astringent, Camphor, Grass, Hay
I got this tea with my last order from What Cha tea. I fancy to try it because it made from unique variety pubilimba native to Vietnam.
And I really fall in love with it!
Malted, soft, warm, gently sweet. Raisins, honey, and fruits in taste.
I brewed it ‘gong fu’style with short steep (in this case you get sweeter and less malt).
Started from 10 sec and added 10 sec on each next step.
One of my favorite hong cha!
Flavors: Fruity, Honey, Malt, Raisins, Sweet
