3 tasting notes

Note: This is not the exact variety of tea I have, which is named simply ‘Pu Li’. Wikipedia seems to think it’s a variety of Pu-ehr.

This tea is extremely smoky, and somehow still light, as Asian teas are wont to be. It’s got the subtle grassy undertones of a green tea, and the freshness of white, but the overarching flavour, which somehow seems to connect the two, is a smoky, dark tint.

Overall, this tea is nice, and in a certain mood I could greatly enjoy it. As it is, I find it a little heavy right now; then again, I have never been a great fan of smoky teas, and greens are not my favourite.
