drank Wenshan by Tea Ave
10 tasting notes

I looked forward to tasting this tea after listening to a podcast where Robert Coons talked about Wenshan Baochong. A lovely tea with honey or maybe honeysuckle under currents. Grassy taste and smell (in a good way) I associate with a more astringent green tea lasted through several steeps and mixed nicely with the honey and butter. Though I anticipated the dry mouth of a green tea this never came. I could drink this tea as a daily sipper.

I followed the instructions on TeaAve’s package that said to fill giawan 1/2 full so I estimated on the grams added. Filled with 90 C water and steeped for 30 seconds. Each steep afterward I added 10 seconds out to 5 steeps.

Flavors: Butter, Grass, Honey, Honeysuckle

195 °F / 90 °C 0 min, 30 sec 4 g 3 OZ / 100 ML

Life long coffee fanatic who just found the incredible taste and feel of really good teas when I visited a tea shop in San Francisco’s Chinatown few months ago. I have since found a local tea shop and have been introducing myself to various types of tea. Found Steepster and now have a great reference tool to answer many of my questions.
