Recent Tasting Notes


i bought it at an asian supermarket.. normally i don’t buy tea there but i thought this may be better because it’s not a simple chinese tea box but imported and marketed specially for the european market with a clear colorful packing, essential information on the origin and good packaging.
now when opened up i compared it to an organic lung ching at a higher price range (premium) and the smell was like an older lung ching. the leaves were still green/slight yellow but still ok. but nothing compared to a premium lung ching (plain light green and hairy). after smelling for several times it smelled like a lung ching, but not very intense and it had a rather usual aroma and not a real fresh one. but hey. it’s a supermarket tea, you knew it wouldnt be a premium fresh lung ching.
for the taste: i can say yes, it tastes like lung ching, but not like a fresh and good quality lung ching- it doesn’t taste like a bad or worse lung ching, but i would rate the quality “ok”, not very good, not bad, not good enough to be good, but far better than a bad tea.
i rate it “ok usual supermarket lung ching”.
therefore it’s not a happy face (66 points) but far from a “i don’t know” face (33) and absolutey way far from an “awful” face (1), so here goes my 60 points for it.
price range was medium (16 Euro / 100g), but too pricey for the quality in my opinion. you get a lot better and organic lung ching for 20-30 euro / 100g.
would i recommend it? – no.
would i drink it when there is no other tea around ? possibly yes.
