106 Tasting Notes
Only had a small amount of this so I savored it as much as I could. The age of the tea changed the flavor immensely compared to its modern equivalent. The aged version has a earthy-smokey-dusty-almost tree-like flavor and aroma that may or may not be able to stop time. Definitely an experience. Only wish I had enough for the ’58…
Blooming teas are always a fun little experience. not the best in terms of taste quality but the coolness makes it worthwhile, especially when you get a really nice bloom.
Excellent wild Pu-erh. sort of tastes like bamboo or if you’ve ever chewed on a chopstick. light but still earthy, i’ve gotten as many as 13 good infusions out of it before it lost it’s flavor.
Not top choice for drinking by itself. it does however blend with just about everything, which is its purpose. makes for excellent chai.
My favorite tea so far. the perfect balance of smokey and sweet. nice and dark but not too dark.
Smokey, crisp, very dark and aromatic. excellent fall/winter/rainy/snowy tea
