so after being on hiatus from reviewing teas, I’m back. hopefully my fans will be relieved that I’m back.
Wuping green tea.
Ru Yao dragon teapot, gongfucha.
Dry leaves: peppery, grass.
Wet leaves: freshly cut grass, vegetal, similar to sencha (?)
Forgot to take photo. Looks just like sencha.
Light steep; I taste/smell: (smell) slight fruity(?) light —> grass, pepper. (Taste) light -→ grass, pepper, vegetal. Medium bitterness.
Medium steep; I taste/smell: (smell) slight pepper. Light —> grass, nuts.
(Taste) light -→ grass, pepper, vegetal, bitterness.
Heavy steep; I taste/ smell: (smell) nothing recognizable. (Taste) slight grass. Light metallic (iron) note: I thought this steep was going to be super bitter. however, it’s super weak.
All in all a unique tea. Not the best, but tasty none the less. I rate a 75.
Side note: does anyone know? Is this supposed to be Chinese sencha? It sure tasted like sencha.
