On the first steeping the scent is very light… almost not there.
It is sweet with a refreshing quality. I’m not well versed in Pu-Erhs, but have tried a fair number and this is different from any I’ve had so far.
It is a bit grassy, but not in an over-powering or putting-off way… Just clean and vegetal. There’s a little of that earthy, almost fishy, flavor at the bottom of the sip but not At All as strong as in other Pu-Erhs I’ve had. Instead it’s gentle and rounds out the flavor some.
Second Steep: The earthy/lightly fishy scent has started to come out. A sweetness, too.
This is still green, but more earthy with that slight sweetness still there. A tiny bit of astingency is coming out, too.
Third Steeping: The scent is a bit more earthy with that light fishyness coming out. Not strong like other Pu-Erhs I’ve had. This is still a very light tea.
The flavor is lighter this time, I feel. Earthy with a touch of green. No sweetness now.
I won’t go on any further about the steepings; I think what I wrote gives a good introduction to this tea. It is a bit green, a bit earthy, a bit sweet… how much and what depending on the steep. It is a Very light and refreshing Pu-Erh, not like anything I’ve tried before.
This may be a buyer. I’ll find out after a few more steepings, probably.
