drank Lao Cong Shui Xian by Old Ways Tea
191 tasting notes

Okay so I really need to kick the habit of pouring entire oolong packs into a 90 mL gaiwan because it absolutely does not work for oolongs under a certain level of roast, or at least not with the local tap. While this one is not as green as the ones from the Steeping Room (which I suspect are dropshipping Wuyi Origin teas so I need to look at what ratios others are using for those teas), this was still at best a very subpar experience. The greenness and sharpness is overwhelming. From what I can tell though, the material does seem to be better than the SR ones and worth the slight premium.

Just a chronicle of a stranger’s tea journey. Trying to learn!!

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 fair amount of solid teas out there, and reading mildly subjective reviews from others > very subjective numerical rating that gets skewed by Steepster’s calculating system anyway.
