Oh my. Potting soil.
But it does have a very sweet start, and a sweet aftertaste. It’s what is in the middle that’s just not working for me.
I guess this makes me a dry storage kind of girl!
It’s on my wish list;)
Boychik – have you tried it????
Potting soil. Ick.
Have tried it too, both at home and brewed by TwoDog at his tea tasting in June. Definitely heavy on the wet storage. I have a theory that people in really humid climates don’t taste or smell musty odors the way dry climate people do. I like some wet storage taste but I like to taste other things too.
No, that’s why I want to try. I liked JC review. I do live in a humid climate;)
That seems like a sound theory to me, cwyn :)
Boychik – I’ll send you the rest of mine, if you want it. It was a 25 g sample and I think I used 5 g
Omg. I can’t say no. Let me know what would you like fr my cupboard.
Life is teacup offers 2 samples of the same tea, except one had wet storage & the other dry, so people can try the difference. I bought the sample, but haven’t really had the time to try them…yet.
Terri: Have you ordered from them in the last month and a half or so? Gingko seems to have dropped off of the planet, she doesn’t respond to emails anymore.
Oh really? I’d say it’s been at least a couple of months since I ordered.
I’d be interested in trying something like that, to see the difference!
Had some this afternoon before work and now another session after work. Highly enjoyable. My first time trying “wetter” storage…results remind me of good shou. Got to get a cake or two :) But I can understand how this is kinda a “marmite” puerh. Would be interesting to see how/if the puerh changes in a few years in a European climate.
Yeah, that sounds like a good experiment, DarkStar. I wonder if it will “air out” in another climate.
