I bought a sample of it along with 2012MGH1203 imperial ripe and 2011 MGH 1104 ripe. I find it has more refined smooth notes than other two. Its my second day of resteeping. I lost truck how many steeps I made maybe 15. I usually start with 10-15 sec and up to 30 sec max
First time I tried it several months ago i over-steeped it. At 4 min this tea became bitter and i disliked it immediately. didnt want to try again until last night I was reading Nicole’s review Golden Tip Assam by Gong Fu Tea Shop which inspired me to try again. This time I steeped it only for 3min. 1/2 of a brew I made with whole milk(didnt have a cream) and 1tsp of maple syrup . Another half was plain. This tea is amazing both ways. Milk+ syrup is like creme brulee , so rich and satisfying. Plain is very malty, thick, muscatel flavors. the smell is intoxicating. Who needs a dessert after such cup of tea? not me;)
I’m a newbie in Puerh. never thought I would venture in this area. i was always afraid to try but once i tried i became hooked. read lots of reviews and always follow thread pu-erh of the day. Sheng or Shou
Anyway this particular tea sounded so intriguing so I decided to order from Dragon Tea House site(in my opinion it was the cheapest). I like it so much that i even placed an order for the second. and already got the second. it takes around 10 days incl weekend to get from China and I find it remarkable. Maybe because Im in New York.
Its very smooth without any offensive smell, kind of earthy, sweet and on my 3th or 4th steeps i noticed some citrus notes and even dried cherry. maybe its my wild imagination;)
its a sample i got back in July with my purchase. Sweet, smooth with sweet potato and a tiny smoke flavor. just want to make sure if i still like it before i place an order on Black Friday.
I like it a lot. Sweet potato and bread notes. its a sample i got in July with my purchase. Very good and flavorful 2 steeps. 3rd one was ok, nothing special but i still finished it. On my list to get during Black Friday sale
free sample with my recent order from PuerhShop.com. Thank you
I like it. very smooth, no funky taste. I’m on my 4th steep
very satisfying cup of tea. perfect for those mornings when its hard to choose and you dont want to think. my whole family enjoyed at breakfast. citrusy,lemony, just right, not overdone. i was afraid to use boiling water because its Darjeeling base and it could become bitter quickly. also i steeped it under 4 min
I really enjoyed this tea. very flavorful. no boiling temp for me because its quite drying at 205F. i find this tea delicious at 195F and 3 min Picked it up at SOHO shop. 2oz but now thinking that maybe i should pick some more. At a shop they give 5% discount frequent shopper. picking some amount is very convenient cause im hoarding tea
thank you James, you encouraged me to start writing notes
