Bought the sample size from Liquid Proust Teas
2g grandpa in a small mug, mix of Brita/Poland Spring water, boiling
For over double $/g vs. Trust 2, perhaps not even as good as Trust 2 (excluding qi, Trust 2 is lightly warming, this one is much more noticeably warming, which I felt in my back. also some burps.)
Trust 2 has a more bitter profile initially whereas this 95 TGY is immediately approachable with a fairly classic oolong profile: hints of roast, brown sugar, woody medicinal, dried fruits, and then crushed mint on the aftertaste, which lingers slightly, but longer than any aftertastes from Trust 2. Unfortunately not nearly as durable as Trust 2, which I’ve heard is an issue with some wistaria maocha, but cannot confirm as I have not tried any other Wistaria productions to date.
Later steeps are quite plummy, but a little less vs. Trust 2
Really glad I got to try these, if trust 2 was stocked again would definitely repurchase, but the 95 is a little sketch to recommend not because it’s a bad tea but because for the price (nearly $2/g), there’s better options. That being said, as a newbie to aged oolongs, I’d still say it was worth trying for me.
