drank Rice Tuocha by Tea Dynasty
69 tasting notes

I am not a big fan of dry tuocha smell, it smells overpoweringly like rice, but when it’s steeped it actually turns out to be a pretty yummy sheng puerh. It’s quite astringent and can get quite bitter if you oversteep it, but otherwise it’s pretty mellow bold tea. It seems to pack quite a punch as well, any time I drink it I get plenty a rush.

One thing I noticed that after steeping one tuocha literally only three times in my travel container it still smells like it after I have at least 4 other teas in it. It’s a peculiar experience, I don’t particularly like the smell of tea, but it tastes good to me. I am definitely interested in flavored puerhs now, so I’ll give this tea that, it awakened my curiosity beyond straight pu-erhs.

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. »
