6622 Tasting Notes
dexter sent me some moonlight samples to try out and i figured i really ought to get to them asap. I’m still a shou lover but i’m always open to experiments and trying things out, especially when friends are also trying them (terri i miss the BBB!)
This one has an initial sweet smell, though after brewing it for a number of steeps and trying it with both a lower temp and hotter with flash steeps – i remain unconvinced that this is a puerh for me. It was, for me, a rather boring and uneventful brew. Closer to water than anything else though there was none of that bitterness that i sometimes find with raw puerh. Not a bad experience but nothing to convince me that it’s for me :) thanks dexter!
tasty cup from waaaaay earlier today. We did a 2 hours ride in the hot sun (yes we’re dumb) and then a short walk afterwards… it’s good because it let me burn off the several pieces of “strawberry cheesecake ice cream pie” that i made and ate today. This tea? it’s not too shabby. I prefer other versions of this tea over this one, but it won’t be a struggle to finish this one off.
I have been having a rough day today. 3 months left (less a day) before the wedding and i’m starting to stress over things. My other half and i sat down today to finalise all the things we needed to make decisions on, so that helped. All i wanted today though, was to be able to take pause and drink this tea. And so here i am…drinking copious quantities of this, while reading, sitting in the sun and taking a moment for myself. I adore this tea.
