1959 Tasting Notes
The write up of my first clumsy, but not entirely successful experience with pu-erh is up:
A treat—-was able to pick up an experimental ounce bulk at my getting-better-all-the-time favorite little health food store. Looks just like PG tips—ground fine, but used in the same proportions, seems to be just a tetch lighter and brighter in flavor (not in appearance). Would have to do a side-by-side comparison to be sure, and tea geeky as I am, I’d love to do that, but time is going to be a tight commodity this week. (Sigh. Not a great thought for an early Monday morning.)
This one’s in the queue at www.itsallabouttheleaf.com, but it’s good—really good! The word ambrosia was used in the review. And rightfully so. :)
Hard to get started this morning; so I treated myself to a morning cup of something really good. This is a yummy liquid illustration of “God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy.” Surely Paul had a cup of this in front of him when he was writing 1 Timothy!
(Actually, probably not … try as I might to verify it, I don’t think tea hit that part of the Mediterranean until much, much later.)
Wrote a longer review for www.itsallabouttheleaf.com, so I’ll keep this note succinct: bready, sweet, toasty, and superb.
