drank Toasted Fig by American Tea Room
1857 tasting notes

This is a very pleasant tea! I would not have known it was a puer if I had not read the description and QG’s tasting note. I have had puer that smelled like shrimp, like fish, or like a horse farm. (And I liked them okay, they tasted smooth and sweet in spite of their aroma.) This is not like that at all! The toasted fig adds lovely flavor and body, and the coconut is subtle and adds a little creaminess to the cup. This is very good puer – this is very good tea! Thank you, QG!

Liked it before, liking it better and better as it cools and more flavors come out to play. The barest hint of the fennel is there, but it adds a nice note to the cup. Yum! No bitterness in this at all.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
