9 Tasting Notes
Purchased in Dragon tea house (2015). I like this tea, fresh and citric flavor, little smoky in the first infusions and camphor notes in later ones, beautiful leaves. Let rest some minutes after the first rise, so the leaves hydrate and expand. I prefer a bit strong infusions so I use 5g of leaves in 100 cc of water. Recommend it
This tea looks great, entire leves with greenish color and a lot of beautiful white tips. Is a very mild puerh whith sweet aftertaste. Indeed is very atipical, is more a green tea, similar to a Pai mu tan than a puerh. Also has a low “qui” but is pleasant. With almost boiling water I saw better results than with 90°C.
The grapefruit looks lovely. However, this puerh is strongly compressed, fermented and the leaves appears fragmented and damaged (maybe by the citric acids..?). This is very different to my previous experience with tangerine puerh. First infusions have some earthy puerh like flavor, but acid taste predominant and stronger in subsequent tastings. Someone taste a better grapefruit puerh?
