I’m getting earthy smells that remind me of pu-erh while it steeps. Taste is earthy as well, and I’m getting notes that are reminiscent of raisin as it cools. It’s quite smooth on mouthfeel. I think I prefer this without sugar, it is good straight on it’s own.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a youngin’, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
