Backlog. Last Friday night. 4 days ago.

Even with all the gaps in my tasting notes logging this past year and a half, I really thought I’d logged this tea at least once. But I guess not.

To recap, this is the first puerh I’ve had. I was apprehensive trying it. Would I like it? Would it be completely gross? To my surprise, I liked it very much from the very first sip. And it definitely tasted different from a black tea.

So this particular time, I’d wanted to cup of tea after dinner and I’d been thinking about having this one a few days earlier. It came out a bit stronger than I remembered but I still enjoyed most of the cup until it cooled.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 0 sec

Profile

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
