43 Tasting Notes
I had a nice cup of this tea today. When I opened the package, I could smell the soothing scent of lavender immediately. When I lifted the cup to my nose, I could small bergamont and lavander, but they were not in competition.
The first half of the cup, I drank straight. The flavors mingled nicely together. The second half of the cup, I added milk. I wanted to see if it would hold up nicely, and it did. I enjoyed the cup.
This tea would make a nice latte as well. I may just have to order more and see.
The first brew of this tea had an amazing floral note, and that is saying a lot coming from me. I hate floral teas. The first cup was an incredible start, and made me wonder how much better the second cup would be. This tea did not disappoint. The tea held up for many brews. I loved this tea.
This is an interesting tea that I tried many different ways. I tried high heat and low heat at various temperatures. It had a distinct taste that was noted with malty tones. It has a robust flavor without overwhelming my pallet. I am not a giant fan of the flavor, but it is quality. This is a quality representation of this tea.
I have to admit that I was disappointed with this tea. I tried it at least four times, and the result was always the same. Maybe the flavor was just too subtle for me. I like my Pi Lo Chun to be a little more robust. It also had a slight smokey flavor—almost like Dragonwell. Don’t get me wrong, this tea is not horrible. It just is not quite the chun I like.
I’ve had this brew before, but I have yet to rate it. I like the subtle flavor of this green. It is a little smokey, and the body is slightly heavier than expected. The result is subtle smoke with some weight. I was surprised by this tea. It almost reminds me of what a green keemun would taste like.
I did not really enjoy this tea. It had a fishy taste and a bitterness that lingered on my pallet.
Interesting. How did you prepare this one? My experience with this tea was positive. I believe it was my favorite of the bunch.
I use these parameters: http://www.chicagoteagarden.com/steeping-tips
I used cooler temp like for green tea. If you have any of the sample left you might try chamging parameters. Also I did a wash first.
I did play around with the parameters, and that was the best of the methods I tried. I have had success was Raw Pu before. This is just a tea that I do not like, nor do I appreciate the profile.
Again, interesting. This is a good reminder to me how important personal preference is and how that needs to be considered when reading reviews. Better experiences on your next cup!
