20 Tasting Notes
This was my first pu-erh and I was blown away. I loved the smoky sweetness of this tea. Each re-steep was a little less smoky and a little sweeter- and each cup was delicious. At work today all I could think about was getting home to have a cup of Wild Monk. Yay- it’s Friday and I have all weekend to drink tea. I think I’m hooked…..
The first time I had this tea, I sweetened it slightly. The most prominent flavor and scent to me was chamomile. After the chamomile, there was a strong citrus taste and vanilla last. The finish seemed to have more mango. I would have said that this tea would definitely not be a re-buy for me.
The second time I made it, I sweetened and also added milk. This totally changed the tea for me. The milk brought out the creaminess and toned down the chamomile and citrus- which is just what I wanted! I will re-buy!!
