53 Tasting Notes
Not sure what to think of this. It’s definitely got character, but it’s a very brusque and affronting tea. Opens up slowly to a wide range of flavors, all around the same category as the first steeping, which is the least pleasant, but still somewhat tasty.
Pretty dull for a TGY, some bitterness I never worked my way around… maybe a longer rinse is in order. Also a very mineral taste. It’s interesting, but not exciting. Pleasant enough to keep drinking, but maybe not worth the price.
Got this hoping it would be a cheaper way to satisfy a jasmine craving. It’s a bit bitter at first, though gives way to a smooth cup with a hint of astringency. It’s not very good, but does deliver a nice kick of jasmine. Don’t think I’ll buy again.
Heaven. Not too heavy on the Jasmine, so you can brew it strong. Perfectly subtle and demure white, just the way it should be. Significantly diminished aroma on resteepings, unfortunately, and the aroma that remains overpowers the especially subtle flavors that normally come out of a silver needle after the first cup. A bit pricey, though, I want to find a cheaper Jasmine.
