Aroma of steeping tea: The aroma reminded me of camping in the great outdoors. It was very smokey with lots of woodsy smells reminding me of damp moss, citronella and sandalwood. At this point I’m very excited, this is exactly the type of thing I was looking for.

Taste: The smokiness is the dominant flavor, but there are a lot of other things going on. I get hints of tangy lemon, crisp mint and eucalyptus and a very pleasing bittersweet nature. This tea has a very thick and full mouthfeel, there is a lot of substance to it. Throughout the course of steepings the flavors have seemed to stay mostly the same, just becoming a little more muted with each steep…but that doesn’t mean the tea becomes boring. There is more going on in this tea than I can really even name. This is a truly exciting tea (not to mention the level of energy its giving me is unbelievable, don’t drink this one too late at night!).

All in all, I’m very much enjoying this one and I’m happy with my purchase. This one was a bargain.

Yo, Kyle! Did I include a sample of that wild tree mao cha? If so, I am mighty curious as to what you will think of that. It is FULL of tea energy! I just listed it on mandalatea.com last night (finally) – we’ve been selling it so fast here in the shop I hadn’t gotten it online yet.

Scatterbrain

Yeah, you threw some my way. Thanks for that.

Garret

Yes!!! Glad you got that one.

TeaBrat

Oh! Yes I am going to get some of this soon. I’m waiting until payday now!

It’s interesting Kwinter-caffeine usually doesn’t keep me awake at night, but this Pu-erh really gave me an energy boost & left me wide awake most of the night! ://
