Very smooth tea with nice depth and complexity. Clean and bright deep red tea soup. I discovered woody, sweet and spicy tastes combined in an interesting way. Qi hit me during the second cup – appeared as a fullness in my head and this continued through the session. I did not detect any bitterness or astringency and hope to enjoy another session with the same leaves. Unable to justify the price of a whole cake but I am delighted to have a generous sample to use over several different sessions.

I drink mostly puer and sometimes what we as Westerners think of as black tea.

I no longer assign numerical ratings to teas because our enjoyment of tea is very subjective. Reactions to a particular tea vary from person to person and within the same person across different tasting sessions.

My tea notes are simply comments reflecting my impression at that specific point in time. They are helpful to me and if they happen to be useful to someone else that is good.

For me, tea is magical with its ability to transform by bringing one back to center and inspiring both peace and contentment.
Reformed coffee drinker. Switched to tea as part of my goal to work on living a healthier, more balanced life — haven’t looked back since.
