76 Tasting Notes
Ahhhhhhh….. sweet serenity.
On stressful days White Jasmine Rose knows what I need. So relaxing. And such a pretty tea with the green of the Bai Mu Dan and the pink and red rose petals. This jasmine and rose offering from ZenTea brings me back to center.
Gotta have compassion for myself. It’s hard being a being.
What I’m drinking here is a first flush of Zen Tea’s Organic Darjeeling. Connie, the owner of Zen Tea (www.ezentea.com), mentioned that this was one of their best sellers – that people were buying pounds at a time every weekend from their shop in the Atlanta area. I grabbed 2oz. for under $7.
I’m going to try this gongfu style. I’ve never done Indian tea that way. We’ll see how it goes.
Oh man! This tea is good! I can see why it’s so popular. It’s not entirely special or original, it’s exactly what a first flush darjeeling smells and tastes like. It’s like several other darjeelings I’ve had, but still… this one is done very very well.
Light and crisp citrusy/woody/assamica aroma. Citrusy flavor on the back of the tongue. I’m getting apple notes and classic assam flavors. Very mild astringency at the back of the throat.
This tea would blend well with apples or ginger.
I totes mc’goats recommend this tea. – Your Friend Rashad
Aww yea! A package from Verdant!
I’m doing this western style. Why? Cuz ‘Murica that’s why.
The malty chocolate is the first responder to the tea emergency in my mouth. While malty chocolate is performing CPR on my tounge bean flavor sneaks in to draw blood. Finally, Tieguanyin appears to coddle me and tell me everything will be alright.
Chocolate, nuts and beans all up front. Long sweet finish smacks the palate with Tieguanyin.
Oh man, this is some good tea. It’s become more floral. I’m also getting some assam black tea flavors.
