Rather than "shooting the messenger" why not respond with positive reviews of the FLT teas that you've tried?
My "shooting the messenger" response was directed toward the black tea Ethan has been complaining about since the springtime.
You are correct about responding with positive reviews!
I drink a lot of tea from FLT.My favorites being the Farmers choice Baozhong, Alishan,Lushan,Charcoal Roasted Dong Ding and Muzha TGY.
The Farmers Choice Baozhong
- a great tea with medium to full body,some nice high notes and wonderful Hui gan that last for a long time.I drink this tea all day at work!
During the warmer months I start my day with High Mountain from FLT.My favorite from the Spring 2013 is the Alishan
and the LuShan
. The Alishan has everything I love in high mountain.Great body,mouthfeel,high notes,Hui gan and great energy.Lovely tea!
The Lushan is full body,great energy and Hui gan.I think it's the fullest body of the 4 high mountains!
I really like the Charcoal Roasted Dong Ding
that she gets in the fall/winter months.It usually goes fast. I'm rationing a bag from 2012 spring and one from the 2012 winter now and looking forward to the next batch to arrive.
The tea is roasted beautifully and very well balanced.You can taste the tea base and not just heavy roast to mask lousy tea. Each infusion seems to really show how a well roasted tea can shine with great roasting skills!
My favorite teas of hers are her Muzha Tieguanyin
! The main three she carries are from the same farmer.His passion and knowledge really shows in his tea! I'm drinking the Spring 2012 the most.A beautiful tea,great roast,great medium to full body, great mouth feel,Hui Gan and strong tea energy!
The other two are from 1999 and 2008.The 1999 showing some aged notes and calming energy.Drink this more in the afternoon and evening.The 2008 is more roasted and also with some strong energy.
Keep the Charcoal Dong Ding and TGY in tea jars and have really noticed how it compliments the tea.
Well, that's a good start. These are teas that I like.I'm not saying that everyone will enjoy them as much as I do , but some great suggestions.
Enjoying some Spring 2013 Alishan now on this beautiful sunny Seattle day.
