drank Baozhong by Drink Tea Co
61 tasting notes

5.0g, 100mL gaiwan, Brita water off boil

dry leaves have a strong buttery sweet green smell, combined w hints of a slightly roasted oolong

30s: wet leaves smell of roasted vegetables. Interesting. Taste also has a strong vegetable note, which I wasn’t sure how to interpret. Smooth, but drying on tongue, nothing else in particular to note.

40s: aftertaste is more present, a smoky haze of sorts. Not sweet, but present nonetheless. Maybe something like spinach or arugula with less of a kick? Seen a different baozhong review described as tasting of “boiled mint” which I suppose is sort of apt

1 min. 30s: smoky. Didn’t continue notes or infusions, was probably a busy day.

while this site is mostly inactive, the organization and formatting is convenient to add notes without the hassle of making a blog. And yes, people do leave reviews elsewhere, but it’s convenient to have them all clustered in one place when you’re purchasing or deciding to purchase something. While tastes vary from person to person, hobbies tend to be universally expensive and time consuming, and tea is no exception. Learning as it relates to perception is largely individual and thus these reviews represent my own experience, but also are my small contribution to reducing inefficient blind buys (ahem, tuition, as it were) universally.

As of 4/21/21, I will no longer assign numerical ratings to a tea unless it is terrible enough to warrant one. There are a lot of solid teas out there, so it’s hard to differentiate. I prefer reading mildly subjective reviews from others, anyway, over a very subjective numerical rating.

Not too into 红茶, Taiwanese oolongs, or gyokuro.
