457 Tasting Notes
two days of this tea – im in a Puerh heaven. it is very very good puerh, complex, first 5 steeps maybe so unlike each other.
5g 100ml gaiwan 212F
rinse pause 5/5/10/10/15/15/20/30/ sec etc
Wet leaves have strong smell of dried apricots
1st steep produced brownish reddish clear tea. its sweet but had some sourdough notes at the very end of the sip
2nd steep clean and sweet. as cooled introduced some cream
3rd steep it smelled and tasted of strong cream of wheat.
here i stopped taking notes, it was a midnight. some steeps were mellow, then introduced more flavors. i wasnt paying attention. i just enjoyed.
i have to mention i haven’t noticed any earthiness, leather, cedar or barn smell. this tea is very clean.
I think I should stop rating Puerh. its so hard to put a number for me
This is a generous sample from TeaTiff – thank you !!!
1tsp 8 oz 205F
This tea is everything I need for a morning. It’s full bodied sweet malty dark bitter sweet chocolate with rye bread notes. So many flavors in a cup everchanging. Amazing!!!
Thank you so much TeaTiff for giving me the opportunity to try this fabulous tea!
