drank Puerh by t Leaf T
221 tasting notes

With the emotionally scarring event of my last cup of Puerh a distant memory, I decided to try this again using the method that Cofftea suggested: 1 gram per 30mls, rinse for 15 seconds, brew for 20 seconds. The resulting tea was surprisngly sweet, while still maintaining its earthy characteristic. Much more palatable than the same leaves stewing in water for 4 minutes, but still definitely not my favourite. I’d encourage you to try this brewing method for your puerhs if you don’t use it already!

Miss Sweet

Its amazing how much of a difference the preperation made, I was almost fooled into thinking I liked it because it was miles better than the last time I brewed it!

Cofftea

So… what do you give it now? It still says 1:(

Miss Sweet

I give it a nothing :) (forgot Steepster saved your previous rating)

Cofftea

You can change the rating though.

Miss Sweet

Yep, just changed it before!

Cofftea

What’s your reasoning for not rating it?

Miss Sweet

No rating just means I can’t rate it – I don’t like it but I don’t hate it, so I don’t think it would be fair to give it a sad face rating haha.
