My first-ever Pu-erh! Thanks for widening my horizons with this sample, Verdant. It’s my first official day of summer break and I’m celebrating with tea! Also, I lined up a position for the fall. Feeling golden!
These little tea buds are so cute. Fuzzy and smaller than I expected – they look like little sheaths of wheat. After the rinse they smell strongly of… something I can’t put my finger on. Sorry, that’s not helpful.
The tea tastes interesting and has an unusual mouth-feel. It’s a good tea but I’m not loving it. Maybe with a little resteeping it will grow on me, but so far not so much.
Edited to say: Chaqi like woah! Maybe I do like this tea…
