First steep, 15 sec: It tastes like a wood camp fire smells. There’s also the faint fishiness that many pu-erhs have, but it’s barely there. I can’t tell if I like it or not. It assaults the palate, but after swallowing you want to take another sip. Hm.
Second steep, 20 sec: Same, no noticeable change.
Third steep, 30 sec: Again, not any noticeable change. This seems a pretty straight-forward tea.
I’m going to do some more steepings but am done with my review unless something special pops up to add later.
I enjoyed a cup of this tea tonight. It has a nice mellow flavor. It might sound odd, but it has a slight tangy taste to it. The afternote reminds me a little of a smokey afternote…but without the smokey flavor. I an intrigued by this tea.
This was my first pu-erh ever, so I’m not in a position to rate it compared to other pu-erh’s. That said, I was expecting a more rank and rancid taste from what I understood to basically be rotten tea, but it was really more earthy and grassy. I enjoyed it very much and can’t wait to try more!
