I received the 2012 harvest as a sample with my latest Verdant order:) I had two ounces of the ’11 harvest, so it will be interesting to see if I can taste any difference between the two!

I received a sample of the Tian Di Ren Bulang ‘06 sheng. Finally a puer I don’t hate! It doesn’t have any of the “moldy” smells that I have found off putting in the past. It’s a very interesting taste. Too complex for my novice palate.

Bio

While I have always liked tea, I have recently fallen off the deep end into loose tea madness :)

I have found that I prefer the darker spectrum of oolong teas like da hong pao, Shui Xian, dark roasted and/or aged TGY, and also Dancong’s. Pretty much anything but floral oolongs, they just arent my style. I also enjoy pretty much every black tea that I have tried! I am also getting more familiar with puer tea, and lately have been preferring shu over sheng…Good for the stomach, and the most likely way to find myself “tea drunk!”
