14 Tasting Notes
This is a really well balanced ripe pu-erh. It is smooth and well rounded. The first steepings have some sweetness to them that gives way to hints of vegetal and earthy flavors in later steepings.
I received one of these for my birthday this year. I had wanted one for a while, but figured that my electric tea kettle was pretty good and I never really was planning to buy a Zojirushi. Now I don’t know how to live without it. Water is ready to go when I wake up thanks to the timer feature and gone is the constant reheating water and waiting for it to cool to the right temp. This never seemed to be a big inconvenience at the time, but I don’t think I could get by with out the Zojirushi. I even bring it to work with me! The downside to this product, however, is that my tea consumption has gone way up and I have been buying much more tea than in the past!! (Although…on second thought…that really is not a downside!!)
