working from home today which hopefully will allow me to try some of the last few unlogged teas in my cupboard. Why am i doing this? so that i can send the other half of my samples off to terri! Not to mention getting a few steps closer to 150. Drinking this one puts me at 198. What am i drinking? Another tea from the verdant reserve samples from rewards – this one is a haixin tang 2007 stone-pressed sheng. Since i have no clue what i’m doing with this – lack of directions is my only annoyance with verdant’s teas, i’m trying to do a few steeps of this at random intervals. heh. I’m sure terri will do a much better job of this for me. This smells earth and delicious, though that may just be a factor of the tea mixing with the rain that we have happening here in toronto :)
this has got an earthy, slightly smoky? taste to it. It will be interesting to see how the steepings change this morning in between some other teas i want to try heh.
Subsequent resteeps of this = pretty decent puerh and not so bad for what i think? is my first sheng? maybe? lol what can i say? i’m at the start of my puerh journey :)
