Recent Tasting Notes

99

After a quick rinse, I am drinking steeps 1-3 together (steeped 5 seconds each time)
The aroma to me is a bit muddy with an uncooked sourdough bread flavor.
The taste is complex, unbelievable, and I am blown away by the flavor.
This is woody, deeply earthy and smokey…my first time to try a smokey flavored tea…
it is all this, but with the sweetness of sourdough cookies.
Drinking with 1 packet Pyure Stevia (best stevia, no aftertaste)

(NEWBIE in the world of Pu-ehr,please forgive if my tasting notes are not the most sophisticated.)
Slightly dry aftertaste, but so0oO worth it :-)

CelebriTEA

Steeps 4-6 (20 seconds each)
A smooth, smokey and spinach aroma & flavor…
Hmmm…I wonder if all Pu-erhs have this magical quality of changing…

Sil

lots of them do :)

CelebriTEA

Thanks Sil :-)
I am learning and loving this tea

Sil

Not sure if you’ve tried mandala’s puerhs but there are some fantastic ones that Garret has that will knock your socks off :)

mrmopar

Agreed Mandala’s are pretty fine teas!

CelebriTEA

Thank you!
I am not sure who to ask, but:
If I am leaving the wet leaves to "sit"between steeps 6&7,
is there a proper way to store it (refrigerator) or is it ok
to leave wet leaves in Gaiwan and place in tea cabinet?
Thank you to whomever answers this tricky question…

mrmopar

Leave them in the Gaiwan just tip it up so any excess water runs out. I usually just leave it out. When you hit it with boiling or just below boiling on the next infusion it will sterilize anything of question.

Sil

bug me in the new year once all my orders are in, celebritea and i’d be happy to send some of mandala’s puerhs to you to try.

CelebriTEA

Thank you both!
Sil, that is very generous ;-)
I did just as you said MrMopar
