53 Tasting Notes
You know… I really wish this was about half the price. It’s nothing special, but if it were cheaper, it’d easily be my go-to oolong for daily drinking. It’s got a lot of flavor when brewed right, even if it’s not a very special flavor. It stays strong on the second steep, too, which is a great quality. If only it were cheaper!
Very new experience to me. I put off trying this sample, since I’m not a green drinker, and wanted to do it justice. The aroma is remarkable, and the flavor astonishingly smooth. Mildly astringent, but buttery and warm. yum.
I would swear this was a white if I didn’t know better. Incredibly smooth and subtle base with a mild/moderate level of jasmine that wouldn’t stand out quite so much with a heavier base. This is just as pleasant to drink as jasmine silver needle, without the pricetag or heavyhandedness. There’s no aftertaste, which I see as a downside (I like that lingering mouthfeel a good jasmine can give) but this is a strong contender for my go-to jasmine.
This produced a pleasant cup. I didn’t really pay it much attention. it was by no means extraordinary, but very smooth, subtle, and gentle. If you stop to think about it, it’s a nice enough green base, with a moderate level of jasmine aroma, but doesn’t leave you much aftertaste. Very easy to finish a cup, but not exactly eye-popping either.
