Yunnan White Jasmine from Verdant Tea

Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: Lancang, Yunnan, China

97 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 14th, 2015

1st infusion, 5s: The liquor was a delicate, yellow-clear shade. The scent, so much more vibrant than any jasmine I have had—it wafted out even as I had just begun cutting the packaging open. Bubble gum? Yes, indeed! But none of the artificiality of bubble gum flavoring, just pure florals and vanilla. Depth, perfume,...

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5
Aug. 27th, 2014

Very interesting tea! A bit pricey, based on the website and their recommendation of using 2 teaspoons worth for a cup, but good quality. I detected an undertone of raisins with a hint of a spice I wouldn't be able to name. It tasted really very good at the beginning. Later in the morning it developed a bitter flavor, ...

This tea is interesting, but I'm not used to pu-erh. It has a vegetal aroma. It tastes really mild, and kind of savory. With the first infusion it left a kind of tingly feeling in my mouth. I added cream and sugar.

Alex and I had very different experiences with this tea.I was only able to brew this once and I did so, following Gingko's instructions of water just off the boil, for about 1.5 minutes. I was totally surprised that the liquor was so dark, it looked like black tea, The aroma was on the nutty/vegetal end , with a slig...

This is a strange tea that requires proper brewing if you want to appreciate it. It's not even remotely like any other white tea I've ever tried.

I received a generous amount of sample of this tea from Life in Teacup. I experimented brewing three different ways, using many infusions, starting at 1-minute and gett...

(Lot # Bing-Autumn10612-01)

This is my favorite shu/shou (ripened) Pu-erh of all time.

I did not enjoy this tea at first but it has since grown on me after drinking about a third of the cake. I found this tea to improve considerably as it has continued to age. Interestingly, I find it tastes more like aged shen...
