drank Bai Lin Gong Fu by jing tea shop
2816 tasting notes

This is the last of the red tea samples I got from Jing Tea Shop – I have not had the chance to try this particular one yet.

I decided to go for two short steeps in the gaiwan – for around 30 seconds. Its a very smooth tea which is characteristic of Chinese reds, very malty and chocolatey with a slight floral note. I like it.

Second two round of steepings were for 60 seconds. Now the tea is a bit gentler and has some light caramel notes which are great. This is an easy tea to drink straight. I will have to try steeping it the traditional Western way as well.

Definitely a good tea but I don’t think there’s anything about it which makes me want to buy any more…

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
