drank 2017 She's Not Me by white2tea
685 tasting notes

She’s Not Me is a very consistent tea with a Bu Lang character. Some of the material seems a little aged, but not a large percentage. Nevertheless, the tea is not overly rough or abrasive. All in all though, I just don’t find it exciting enough to justify the price.

The aroma is sweet and herbaceous with notes of fermented fruits (sea buckthorn juice), sunflowers, thyme and lemon balm. First infusion is already quite viscous with a colloidal mouthfeel. The taste is citrusy and displays a nice sweet finish. Later steeps get more savoury and herbaceous, until the fruitiness reappears after the peak. There are flavours such as those of sunflower and anise seeds, sugarcane, butter, wood, cantaloupe, and spices.

The mouthfeel is generally very nice and foamy. After swallowing there is a prolonged biting and after a few minutes also throat-cooling sensation. The cha qi is energizing and dizzying, but not the most memorable.

Flavors: Biting, Butter, Cantaloupe, Citrus, Fennel Seed, Flowers, Fruity, Grass Seed, Herbaceous, Lemon, Nuts, Sweat, Thick, Thyme, Wood

I have been a fan of green tea for a while and I started exploring other kinds of tea in greater depth only in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
