34 Tasting Notes


This is my go to morning cup. Love this tea! Absolutely loaded with malty flavor and well rounded beside that. It is strong but not in a scrape your tongue way if you know what I mean. Fog lifters don’t get much better than this.

Just got this yesterday from Mandala. This is a nice little shu! Very, very smooth with lots of earthiness and a thick, thick mouthfeel. Definitely looking forward to enjoying this as the fall arrives (there are good things about summer ending!)

I’ve chosen this tea for my first tasting note on here. This tea is fantastic. I have enjoyed both western and gong fu with great results both times. The first time I drank it my girlfriend and I actually started laughing it tasted so good. This is always a good sign!

From this tea I have gotten throughout the steeping process the much lauded sandelwood notes as well as stone fruit, grapefruit, and floral notes with some slight minerality popping its head up. Delicious tea.
