This is my first time drinking raw puerh and I can tell by the smell of the liquid and the wet tea that it is going to be a new experience.

The directions call for 3 seconds and I did just over that due to the fact that the amount of tea per water that I used was slightly less. This produced a flat bronze gold color of liquid with a smell unlike any I have ever smelled before. Now for the taste…my first thought was “what the…?” with my next being similar. This is not what I was expecting and I just continue to drink it up! My hands seem to find the cup and not the keyboard so if I do not write something soon it will be gone. Focusing finally, the taste is definitely juicy, with a background of slightly earthy sweetness.

For the next steep I allowed the time to run a little longer, trying to establish the flavor more without making it bitter. It was a success and resulted in the delicious flavor being slightly more prominent, which makes my loss for words even more embarrassing!

This is a tea that I plan on buying again, and maybe then I will discover what else to write about this tea. For now I must conclude with the description of a beautiful mix of earthy sweetness that I could drink all day. I have no doubt that this tea could resteep until I am thoroughly fulfilled but as much as I would like, I am unable to sit around at the computer all day. However, I am content in the fact that I can take this tea around with me all day :)

Bio

I’m currently studying for a Psychology major with a minor in Philosophy at Texas Tech University.

I love Chinese tea! I drink my tea hot almost every time without additives such as sweetener. Oolong is quickly becoming one of my favorite teas, with green close behind.

Im toying with the rating system and expanding my knowlegde of teas so I may switch around the ratings from time to time as I compare.

I try to follow people who review teas similar to my taste or are just plain helpful.
