I threw the last of this sample in a thermos flask today, because I wanted tea on the way to and at university. So, grandpa style brew. It’s a two hour journey down to the university and the traffic can be horrendous, so I always like to have a drink with me in case I stop on the way. Anyway, it stood up to the abuse very well did this tea. It was rich, earthy, mellow and lasted well with top-ups from the boiler in the staff kitchen. Having tested it to destruction and enjoyed the result, I have decided to increase my rating of this tea. I may well invest in more of it now. But first I must test my other teas to destruction too. Which pu shall I abuse next week? ;)

2011 Canton Tea Co Special Puerh. I read the review and if you still have some, I remember it had great energy. You’ll need that to yell and the blasted traffic on the way to Nottingham. “Get out of the B…y road you toad!”

Bio

I am a historical consultant, Vikingologist and tea enthusiast! To be honest, I have always liked decent tea, but in 2011 I started working at learning what good tea really is. I continue to expand my horizons and discover new teas with the aid of my chums on Steepster, much to the chagrin of my wife, who despairs of my enthusiasm.

My favourite teas are Darjeelings, sheng puerhs and Anji Bai Cha. I return to these every time, after whatever flirtation with other teas I have been involved with.

I no longer rate the teas I drink because keeping ratings consistent proved to be rather hard work while not really giving me anything in return.
