drank Mi Lan Xian Feng Xi by SOKO Tea House
473 tasting notes

Pretty standard, for a Mi Lan varietal, I think (though honestly I wouldn’t take my word on that—I’ve only tried about three); dark, roasty honey, sometimes sharp (though I wouldn’t say astringent or bitter).

I’d almost say it makes me think more of chestnut than honey.

Of course, most of this is from memory because my tastebuds still seem to be dead. I don’t know. Last cup of this, would like to get more though I’m leaning more towards trying other varietals, and getting a xhi lan.

Disclaimer: I work for Murchie’s Tea and Coffee as a taster and blender. I will avoid putting any ratings on teas from them from here on out.

A tea-drinking transgendered Canadian, university graduate, majored in geology (yes, “rocks and things”). I take most of my tea made straight into a mug, although occasionally if I’m not in a hurry (this isn’t often), I’ll have time to sit down with a pot or gaiwan. It’s the highlight of a good day.

My notes are pretty disjointed because I’m absent-minded, and I also keep a teatra.de blog for reviewing and rambling about tea books/publications, and an instagram for photos. Expect nerding about tea production and history on both.

I’m a Doctor Who fanatic (Jon Pertwee, if you were wondering).
