I got these on a whim because they are cute, portable, and they match Goldie.

The little brick only needed one rinse and then was smooth enough to drink right away. I found some nice cocoa notes and a very pleasant mouthfeel. It’s not my favorite shou, but I am enjoying it very much. I think that for travel or for convenience at work, these little pre-measured bricks are wonderful!

Sarsonator, if we eventually do another swap, I have about six or seven of these mini tuochas.

Do you mean different varieties, Allan?

Yes, Mistress Shou Shou. I will keep on drinking! :)

AllanK

Yes I have at least six or seven different varieties, from Yunnan Sourcing, Tuocha Tea, and EBay. The ones fromo YS were the best of the lot, the ones from Tuocha Tea were mostly good, and the ones from EBay were good.

Oh cool! I got some flavored ones from DTH, but it was a separate order. Those should arrive soon. :)

Over the past week I have been sipping on two lovely “dark teas” (both are new to me) – this one and an 8685 Gong Ting Puer in Tangerine (22g).

A lovely scent while brewing which produces a thick and mellow taste with the sweetness of a floral honey. This is high quality leaf with the capability to maintain flavor through many resteeps – I stopped at 10. The first two steeps are a bit harsh and earthy but those following are more gentle and quite lovely.
