Did a quick rinse before making two cups of this. Brews up dark, smells very sweet and wet earthy and dark. The taste is smooth and mild with a little damp earth and fruit and maybe a little sweet grass.

I don’t think I’m ever going to love pu-erh – the type of sweetness it has seems to be a bit darkly fruity for me to really enjoy, like dried plums or raisins. I tend to gravitate toward lighter or floral sweetnesses. Regardless, I think this is a good tea. Nothing I’m going to crave (since it’s pu-erh) but enjoyable nonetheless.

Oh, I’m always looking for good pu-erhs. This sounds tasty, I think I’ll put it in my shopping list :)

Maybe try raw pu-erh? Carolyn had some good reviews. I can’t recommend any, because I haven’t had it either, but it sure looks interesting. :)

I just tried my first raw pu-erh yesterday, and posted a review. What a crazy tea! I wonder if you’d like it more, Auggy. Thus far, I do prefer cooked.

I’ve had this on my shopping list for quite a while.. thank you for reminding me :)

Based on some of Carolyn’s reviews, I do want to try raw pu-erh for sure! It sounds like it is pretty different from the cooked stuff so I’m willing to give it a go!

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
