Probably one of the best Pu’ers I have had. The price was really fair and it came with very specific instructions on how to brew it, so I actually followed them! Go me.

The insctructions said to pour out the first 2-3 washes, but I was curious(why not) and drank them anyway. They were really good! Why am I dumping these out? I think it is a time when the leaves are opening up and cleaning them and whatnot.

I drank the tea in a very quite room, and the tea made the room quieter, but brighter and made me more aware. It calmed me down a lot. The first 3-5 brew were very cherry/apricot like and I brewed it all the way until the 12th or so pot. It got sweeter as time went by, but not sweet overall. A really complex tea: basically meaning it had a lot to it.

I loved it, yay!

PS- I made it in a gaiwan, and steeped it for up to a minute a few times to just try it out, but mostly its best around 10-15 seconds.

I started loving teas the day I started drinking GOOD teas. I always like the romance of making tea and it took me a while to actually drink good teas. I started with a lot of Chinese teas because that is my cultural background.

I like Pu’er and Oolongs the best probably, but sometimes I try greens and I even dablle with the silly stuff sometimes just for fun. Haha.

Always happy to chitchat about whatever and feel free to message me. I am newer to some teas, so if you ever want to trade, lets do it :)
