5 Tasting Notes

1908 tasting notes

The tea looks quite similar to the Ti Kwan Yin I got from the same company, although these leaves are rolled up a bit smaller. The dry leaves of both also have a sort of spinachy scent to them, although I think the Tung Ting’s is a bit lighter (it’s hard to compare, I just sent away the last of my Ti Kwan Yin so I’m going by memory and my old tasting notes).

The first steep (1 min) is really only enough to get the leaves wet and to encourage them to unfurl. So the resulting liquid is quite thin and light; floral in flavour with a hint of sweet bakeyness on the end.

With the 2nd steep (2 mins) we get into the real deal. The tea starts off delicately floral, and then a warm, fruity flavour takes over, finished off by very light bakey notes. The aftertaste is somewhat floral too, I think.

I think I’ll go for third steep after this. :)

Backlog: This was a real disappointment to drink. Gaiwan brewing. Perhaps next time I’ll try something different. More details will be forthcoming then.
