drank Yunnan's Fable by The Tea Merchant
4650 tasting notes

It appears that my revie of this one failed to save last week. I’m going to hold off on giving this one a number, if only because I seem to dislike pu-erh. I feel like I should love this tea. The coconut and tea provides a rich bold flavour that screams delicious! I also love the deep color of this tea. However, when I try and drink it – ther is something within the tea that I just can’t get past. I’ll be honest, part of the reason I asked for this as my sample from the Tea Merchant was to try another Pu. I’m not holding that against this tea as I do think that this is something that people can get behind. I just may not be a pu person. I’m going to have to try it again to see if maybe I simply did something weird in brewing it. I do want to thank the tea merchant for this opportunity to sample it though. Thank you! If nothing eke I’ll be passing this off to a friend who loves Pu, so that it can be appreciatedby them :)

You know, there are different kinds of Pu. Some are earthy and some not. Try a sheng if you’ve only had shu. Try one of the white’s or something like the Verdant Yabao which looks like buds of wheat in a way and totally different than a shu or sheng. This catagory of tea is vast and varied. (a little encouragement not to totally throw in the towel)

Thanks Bonnie! I’m thinking I may have to spend some time going through reviews/asking for suggestions at some point to see if i can find a variety that I like. For now, I’m ok putting this on hold a bit since I’m still working on “tea” in general and have matcha on the way haha.

I’ll take a look at what you’ve suggested :)

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
