drank Manderin Puerh by Vital Tea Leaf
54 tasting notes

…in the beginning it seems to take a strong grip on one’s tongue and fills the body with heat.The cigar notes that go hand in hand with those subtile mandarin flavors are overwhelming…by the time one has reached its 3rd brew the roughness seems to be tamed and the whole story gets a more silky, female side. But still:
The cigar note, very masculine, clearly dominates the surprisingly shy mandarin
scent…but in a good way.
If it’s a fresh harvest it will last for 4-5 brews.
If it happens to be older then one year…2 brews max.
Damn strong tobacco that is. I recomment to stay away from it after 4.00pm.
Makes one go mental while trying to find some sleep…which most probably will not arrive sooner on your doorstep then midnight….
