drank Pu Erh Dante by Adagio Teas
84 tasting notes

1/18/14 Late evening yixing practice. 3g/6oz/212F/5min after a 200F wash.
Disappointing, but I’m not surprised. The tea itself is pretty old – from 2005, and the teapot is very new. It’s my first yixing style pot, and this is the first real brew I’ve done in it, so I’ve got no clue how it brews. For this brew I followed the brewing directions on the tin, which last time I drank this tea (sometime last spring) made a decent cuppa brewed English style. This brewing made a bitterish tea that tasted primarily of stale hay and dirt. Tomorrow I’ll brew a cup with my usual technique so I can evaluate the tea itself, and decide if I want to keep using it with the pot.
