Tea #8 Great Canadian Traveling Tea Box
I’m confused (I know, that’s not unusual for me). I was expecting this to be pu’erh. Is it suppose to be pu’erh? It doesn’t smell like it, it doesn’t taste like it. To me this is a mild black tea. There is a hint of maltiness, a hint of cocoa, but not bold enough for me. I used one brick to 8 oz of water, and have done 4 steeps of it. The second steep was the best.
It’s ok, but nothing special in a black. If it’s suppose to be a pu’erh total disaster. I’m just going to not dwell on it and move on. It would hurt my poor head too much to try and understand.
Edit: As per Kittyloves Tea’s comment. I’ve rated this as if it were a black. Makes me feel better that this is suppose to be a black tea. Taste buds didn’t fail me this time. I didn’t think it tasted pu’erh. I was underwhelmed with it as a black tea. Nothing really wrong, just not bold enough for my tastes.
