429 tasting notes

This was my first experience with Pu’erh and I can’t really say that I liked it very much. The tea smelled much like grassy hay when I smelled it dry. The instruction said boiling water from 3-5 minutes, so I tried 4. The tea had an earthy smell and taste, much like muddy water. The tea was amber in hue and has no bitter taste at all. I don’t give up easily and I have an ounce of tea so I will keep trying other temps and steep times. If anyone has any ideas, please leave me a comment.

Here’s how I do mine, thanks to Carolyn, now after being completely revolted by steeping parameters similar to yours lol: 1g of tea per 1oz of water. Rinse the leaves by pouring the appropraite volume of boiling (I actually use just below boiling to preserve the health benefits) water over the leaves and let steep for 15 sec. Decant and discard this 1st steep. Boil more water and do a 20 sec. steep. This is your 1st drinkable steep. To do additional infusions, continue at 20 sec til you find the flavor to be too weak for your taste, then increase by 10 sec.
