Townshend's Tea Company No. 46 Iron Goddess of Mercy | Review by Kaplowitz

“LoFi & lovely”


Townshend's Tea Company
No. 46 Iron Goddess of Mercy

ORIGIN: Nantou, Taiwan
TYPE: Oolong

FORMAT: loose (gunpowder)
METHOD: Grandpa style

WEBSITE: www.townshendstea.com

>>>

NOTES: 
Amber-colored & crisply-clear. Herbaceous nose w/ a sandalwood backing. Sips richly to the tune of toasty caramel & vanilla and sweet alfalfa. Slurps to an additional pie crust note. A hint of white grape.

Body is a light oil milky thing w/ a nice wooden astringency clinging to the cheeks (though maybe a bit more would be even nicer). The finish is mellow and soft and allows a long look-see at complexities playing in the depths of top-note nuances. Fucking aces, this.

FINAL GRADE: A
A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F 0-59
