drank Special Pouchong by Ten Ren
14 tasting notes

This is a light green tea with a faint greenish-yellow liquor. The tea has a subtle floral aroma that is mixed with hints of cut grass somewhat like strolling through a rose garden. The taste of the tea is also light and pleasantly green with the usual hints of floral plants. One of this tea’s most winning characteristics is that its flavor changes as you swallow; somehow the tea tastes multidimensional. The perspicacious drinker will detect initial grassy flavors that ease into floral overtones that change depending on whether the mouth is open or not. After swallowing the tea leaves myriad aftertastes, both pleasant and perplexing. One can sip this tea multiple times with entirely different taste experiences. The tea is solid yet light, direct yet ambiguous. Exploring the depths is a truly cerebral experience.

The tea is also robust with respect to multiple brews and acquires a slight sweetness with more plant-y character as one continues.

I enjoy drinking especially floral green teas, Tieguanyin (铁观音) in particular.
