This tea is mildly astringent with a fairly strong roasted barley taste. At least that is the closest to an accurate description I can give it. Its not bad and not great in my book. I am sure however that some people would absolutely love it.

I brewed this once in an 18oz teapot with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 3 min.

Flavors: Roasted Barley

There seem to be two alternating flavors in this tea. One I would describe as a sweet flavor, not sure how to better describe it, the other is roasted barley. The roasted barley flavor is not too intense, but mild. The roasted barley flavor also got less intense as I drank my cup. Once this flavor got less intense, a third flavor was noticed. This third flavor I would describe as mildly fruity, but just barely.

I steeped this one time in an 18oz teapot with 3 tsp leaf and 190 degree water for 3 min. Overall this is excellent tea. I give it a high mark.

Brewed this one this morning. I won’t change the rating even though it doesn’t taste as good today. My taste buds are off today. I somehow have a cut in my mouth. It hits the spot though.

This is an excellent ripe puerh from Yunnan Sourcing USA. I did not have time to gongfu this today but brewed it western style. Still I get nice notes of either plums or apricots, not sure if I would have gotten them had I not added sugar. This is a mildly sweet puerh with a moderate amount of fermentation flavor left. It is not overpowering.

I brewed this twice in an 18oz teapot with boiling water and 8g leaf. I brewed it for 45 sec and 25 sec.
