TTB&C #14

I have been wanting to try Pu-erh, but havne’t been brave enough to purchase much. This is my first. I brewed this per the recommended instructions. I enjoyed the flavor, but I couldn’t quite get over the smell. I have some pu-erh from Verdant that I will be trying next. I am not to sure what to say about this. It didn’t jump out at me as crazy delicious, but it definitely peaked my interest into the world of pu-erh. Thank-you to whoever included the small sample pouch in the TTB. I have left enough for hopefully one other person to give it a whirl.

rinse with boiling water?

You should always rinse, just cover w/boil water 5 sec. Sometimes I rinse twice. Then let rest for couple min. I do in gaiwan short steeps 5/10/15 sec progressing and adding time. You can even do it in steeping basket just lift it. And ratio is important. For 150 ml gaiwan I add 1tbs of leaves or 5-7 g tea. It’s diff if you brew western style. I prefer gongfu for puerh

Bio

I started drinking tea while on a 4 month long cycling trip through South America. It seemed to always be a great way to warm up when I was cold and it was always available everywhere. Mate was the big tea of choice down there and it was also a great way to get to know people. When I returned home, my sister introduced me to Teavana and this launched me into the realm of loose leaf tea. I am still new to this wonderful world, but so far I am loving it.

I am open to swapping. If you see something in my cupboard just message me and we can try to work something out!

Rating:
90-100 – love, love, love must have around always or as much as possible
80 – 90 – Like, could restock
70 – 80 – If some happened into my cupboard I would drink it but will probably never seek it out.
60 – 70 – Meh, will finish the sample but don’t need to drink this again.
Below 60 – Nope not for me.
