527 Tasting Notes
Backlog – sorry.
I thought this was a black tea….oops.
5g 210F 2min
greener, thick, coating, earthy citrus aftertaste
These notes make more sense it this is a pu-erh.
It’s not a tea for me – a little too green and earthy.

Sipdown. I brought this to work to finish off and have liked it better.
Once steeped, leaves are big and intact.
Taste is plum and fruity, sugarcane sweetness with a full mouthfeel and thick body. Juicy. The sugarcane really lingers in the aftertaste.
Thanks for sharing Daylon R Thomas!
Flavors: Fruity, Plum, Sugarcane, Thick
Panda pearls – small rolled balls of tea. Might be white, might be green, I’m not sure. Kind of thick body, little bit of fruit, sweetness. Reminds me of green tea due to the subtle taste, but it’s been open to air for a while too…. Flavor is a little to subtle for me. I like the taste to be more forward. 70

Sipdown. I wanted to wait until I had milk since it needed it last time. But I didn’t end up using any.
It’s retained flavoring really well as this is old. Whiskey, honey, creamy.
200F, 2min – no milk, it’s pretty underleafed – not enough left.
This might be the best this tea has ever tasted. Maybe the age smoothed out the astringency I was getting from the Ceylon? I don’t know. I really enjoyed this cup of tea, but it won’t be a repurchase.
Flavors: Cream, Honey, Whiskey
The other one – Roasted Dragonwell. Experimental Liquid Proust from May 2016.
2min, 180F – roasted, hint of sweetness, sour nuts – light. Kind of a bad aftertaste.
I’m making progress on both drinking down my green tea and avoiding adding too many more teas to my stash!
Flavors: Nuts, Roasted, Sour, Sweet
