An extremely smooth and earthy pu-erh almost creamy even. It has bitterness that is associated with pu-erhs but it’s never overpowering, just stays as a pleasant aftertaste. I can also detect some slight starchiness.

It has a very deep ruby brown color, yet extremely clear, with summer forest after rain smell. What I mean by that is sort of dusty fresh leaves on the ground just when the rain starts type of smell.

Resteeps well, in gaiwan it keeps it’s taste for 10+ infusions, in the pot I steep it for about 3 times getting flavor all the way through.

Bio

I was always a huge fan of teas but my tastes changed constantly. Lately I am on the path of discovering Chinese teas, but not limiting myself to that. I am, however, favoring straight teas at this point.

I love pu-erh, oolongs are always a treat, learning about greens is delicious, absolutely neutral towards rooibos or herbals and black is always a yes. Incidentally any combination of the above is ok in a blended tea, which I like to have time to time.

« The first cup kisses away my thirst,
and my loneliness is quelled by the second.
The third gives insight worthy of ancient scrolls,
and the fourth exiles my troubles.
My body becomes lighter with the fifth,
and the sixth sends word from immortals.
But the seventh—oh the seventh cup—
if I drink you, a wind will hurry my wings
toward the sacred island. »
