485 tasting notes

The aroma of the dry leaves was mostly vegetal, maybe a little herbal. Once they were wet, the roast was the main smell. The flavor of this tea was herbal and had a very noticeable menthol-cooling effect in the mouth, at least for the first five or so steeps. The flavor was also vegetal, moreso towards the end of the tea. The body was not particularly notable. The leaves seemed pretty beat-up upon inspection, though I didn’t look at them too closely. A tasty tea, and the first I’ve had with such a noticeable cooling effect. Looking forward to sessioning this tea some more.

Flavors: Herbs, Menthol, Roasted, Vegetal

A bit about myself: 22 years old, college grad (Double major in Anthropology and History). I plan to make a career of archaeology and hopefully travel (much of) the world in my days.

I enjoy many things aside from tea, including gaming, mixing cocktails, reading, watching anime, and painting miniatures.

My favorite type of tea is sheng puerh. Particularly younger stuff, if only because I haven’t gotten the chance to taste much of anything aged. I also really like oolong (Taiwanese, Wuyi, Dancong, etc.) and Japanese Green Teas. I do also enjoy most other kinds of tea, but they aren’t what I normally buy. I’m not a huge fan of shou puerh, black tea, or flavored blends, with few exceptions.

I really like interacting with the tea community, so if you ever want to talk or swap teas or anything, feel free to shoot me a message or something. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Probably ;)
