2 Tasting Notes
Produces a very rich dark liquor with a smooth mouthfeel. There’s a lot going on in the flavor of this Pu-er. Almost too much I think. I have a hard time picking out anything unique about this tea, other than it has that usual “barnyard” smell. Flavor is roasty and smooth. I’ve accidentally let this tea brew for over an hour, and it never got bitter. I find that it doesn’t rebrew all that well, not because of bitterness issues, but it’s hard to get a similar strong flavor that comes with the first brew.
Water boils between 195 and 200 degrees where I live at 6000 feet. Nose has a hint of smokiness to it. Good black tea flavor, nothing specific comes at me as I drink it. Classic Keemun flavor. Has a nice smooth finish with no astringency/bitterness. Could easily become a regular part of my cupboard.
