2/3/14 3rd and last of a pu-erh flight. 3g/100ml gaiwan/212F Washed. This tea showed well in the gaiwan, and was easily my favorite tea in this tasting. The dry leaf had a pleasant earthy / barny aroma, the wet leaf had the same nice scent but stronger, and the brewed tea carried the same flavors in an enjoyable very earthen tasting way. IT was very nice to taste this tea in context with other pu-erhs. I’m coming to think that Dante is a good classic beginner’s pu-erh. I sort of think I might order a sample of it, to see how the (presumably) younger Dante fresh from the shop would compare to my current several years old tin, which is (presumably) better for having some age on it.
