drank Pouchong by Adagio Teas
19 tasting notes

Got this one as a sample from my last order from Adagio. Upon opening the packet there isn’t much fragrance there and the leaves could be a little stale. I decided to brew this in my gaiwan with a lot of leaf and a small amount of water so I could extract as much out of this as possible.
The liquor is a light yellow, similar to that of other Taiwanese green oolongs. There is a slight floral fragrance along with some vegetal notes.
Overall not a very thick tea. The liquor seems to be pretty thin in the mouth, and I’m not really getting the floral aftertaste that I expect with Taiwanese oolongs, especially a super green one such as Baozhong. While this tea does have some floral notes, there is not much that makes this tea stand out for me and makes it a long step away from a good Baozhong.

Flavors: Caramel, Floral, Green, Vegetal
