3 Tasting Notes
this tea was my first puerh, and when it arrived today, I opened the bamboo leaf and was attacked by the wonderful aroma. It smells like sweet iced tea, but I haven’t really tasted it yet, because the brew is incredibly hot, and the liquors color is similar to a reddish coffee. I would most definitetley buy more.
I am not too pleased with this tea currently, but maybe I need to experiment with the steep time and such. It has a strong smell (unbrewed) that is kind of like hubba-bubba bubble gum. But, once I get it right, I’m sure I’ll love it.
This was my first oolong and unfortunately my last. Its not that I dont like the taste (I love the strong vegetal taste)Its just the fact that this tea hurts my stomach. Great tea, just watch out for stomach aches.
