8 Tasting Notes

wow. don’t let the numbers fool you. this tea has total personality. I always brew it with yixing tea pots, and it is good for the long haul of multiple brews. the liquor has a medium body, syrupy to start out, lightening up as you brew many times. floral and fruit notes abound as this soft yet distinct tea invigorates your senses.

woke up with this tea this morning. Unlike some others I’ve tasted, you can actually taste the green tea.

i love putting this herbal tea in my yerba mate. really adds a sweetness to the mate, and doesn’t inhibit the qualities of mate. Plus, good for colds too.

having never tasted pu erh tea cakes or aged pu erh, I’m just guessing my way through my first bag of this. wash it first before your brew it. I also, strangely, think it tastes good with milk (2%), until its a terra cotta color. I brew the life out of it every time, and it holds up for a different taste every time. a good stand-by, but i’m looking for further adventure in pu erh.

let me add that today I got a new yixing tea pot and dedicated it to this pu erh, and wow, it really makes a difference. I’m on brew 8, and it opens up to real sweetness. hurray.

great evening tea. tastes like melons after a few brews, with slight nutty and floral tones. definitely something for you yixing tea pot or gaiwan.

Mine came today! How does this differ from a green or dark oolong?

Aaron Harrison

not that different from a green (a la oolong #18), but not as thick of a mouth feel, lighter and more fluid. and it seems to go out sooner than an oolong like #18.

a good try at earl grey. don’t over-brew, and I find I get tea drunk really quickly on this (that kind of ‘too full’ feeling). good for afternoons instead of coffee.

wow. really amazing tea. multiple brews make sure you get equal parts fruit and green tea taste. I cut it up after it is finished to get even more out of it. I’ve even taken it out, put it in the fridge and brewed it two days later, and it still tasted great. well worth the cost.

the tea really opens up after the 3rd brewing. the first two seem kind of wooden, and then get spicy and nutty after that.
