drank Obsx Wuyi Yancha by white2tea
366 tasting notes

Additional notes: Sipdown but sad to see this go.

It was a very cherry-tasting yancha. A nice and strong presence of dried cherries with wet wood notes, lots of minerals, floral, and barley. Extremely complex, changed every infusion. As before, it was smooth, a good mouth and throat feel. Although complex, the cherry was present throughout all the infusions… Always ending on a fruity note with a hint of barley.

I’ve had to significantly cut down my tea consumption the past few months due to GERD. I’ll be going into surgery in a couple of weeks. Sucks but… I can continue when I get out. :P As always, I keep reading your reviews, working on sipdowns.

Stay safe out there. Delta variant is a nasty one.

Flavors: Cherry, Cherry Blossom, Roasted, Roasted Barley, Stonefruit

I’m hoping your surgery goes well and wishing you the best of health! I also wish others were not dismissing covid as much as they are.. even if enough people received the vaccines, no one knows what future variants will do.

I hope your surgery goes well!

I agree wholeheartedly about covid tea-sipper. It seems like most people around us (coworkers, family, and even friends) are all of the mind that we’re just ‘back to normal’ and covid is gone. It’s not sitting well with me.

yes! omg i’m with you guys on that one. Husband was out for a drive and detoured just to drive on the niagara parkway and the falls was wall to wall people outside not wearing masks just everywhere….

We are in “back to normal” mood as well. I hate it; luckily I will get second dose on Friday. It’s not the win, but it is at least something that decreases the problem.

Thank you all. I go in for surgery on August 5th. I look forward to having a super good comeback so I can drink all the tea I want. Rawr. :D

Martin, the second dose will keep you from dying from any variant at the moment and that is really something <3.

Well said Kawaii433! If I don’t end up in the ICU, I am fine :)

Bio

Longtime casual tea drinker. In the past, mainly Matcha, Gyokuro, Sencha, Genmaicha… Etc. I like all teas: Green, oolong, black & pu’erh (prefer ripe over raw).

Chanoyu (for matcha prep) and Gongfu cha (for other types of tea) are the main ways I prepare my tea (Gaiwan, Yixing teapot, Kyusu). I drink all tea… Usually unflavored. This past year, I’ve tried many flavored now because of all of you lol. As long as there aren’t artificial sweeteners, it’s all good.

Favorite stores: TeaVivre, What-Cha, Mandala Tea, 52Teas, Whispering Pines, Bird & Blend, Yunnan sourcing, White2Tea, Lupicia.

The flavors I dislike: Artificial sweetener, lavender, violet, any strong floral-perfumey tea; cantaloupe, papaya, honeydew, rose, licorice, anise, jasmine, any mints, leather.

Favorite flavors: Citrus fruits (especially grapefruit & tangerines), granny smith apple, bananas, guava, mango, tamarind, watermelon, stonefruits, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, milk, cinnamon, creme, bread/pastry, nuts, toasted, roasted.

I generally don’t add anything to my teas unless they are flavored, then I may add a splash of milk.

As I explore, my ratings may shift. 90+ generally means I’ll keep it on my shelf.
