236 Tasting Notes
an update as I should have waited to write this in:
when I infused this tea the second time, it gave it a lingering iron metallic taste. I never had the tea suddenly change taste before. still tastes a little like boiled cabbage the same with the wet leaves.. but the leaves now smell like spinach too. for some reason it made the tea taste even better.
this tea reminds me of lettuce
when I smell the dry leaves, I don’t smell anything.
when I smell the leaves wet, I smell a smell that smells like boiled lettuce :)
when I smell the brewed tea, it smells like boiled lettuce and flowers
when I taste it, it tastes like boiled lettuce and flowers
many thanks to mr. mopar for sending me this sample :)
Flavors: Flowers, Lettuce
i have not had this tea for a while too and it is still awesome! i can safely say i prefer sheng puehr :D funny thing when i get the lodging home staff to try it one says “what? the stinky poo ehr?” another says “i don’t drink anything that sounds like its got poo in it” I’m like the Chinese word pu doesn’t mean poo it has nothing to do with poo
(PS: forgot to check the yes under recomended)
a nice and mellow tea! :D
when I smell the leaves dry, it smells floral.
when I smell the leaves wet, it smells like spinach.
