drank Young Pu-Erh by Herbal Infusions
69 tasting notes

It seems like the name of the tea dictates it’s taste quite a lot, it sure tastes young. It is a simple pu-erh. It’s bitterness is a little less refined than other pu-erhs I tried, it doesn’t have many complex notes and it didn’t have much of an aftertaste for me except for standard bitterness. All in all it’s an easy drinking tea and by far not a bad pu-erh, just a little too plain for my personal liking.

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. »
