I usually leave my ‘high end’ tea to be enjoyed at home since at work distractions seem to get in the way of great tea time. I’m glad I changed that, I brought some of this puerh with me and I’m loving it. If anything it allowed me to better savor the aftertaste since I really couldn’t do back to back gong fu.

I agree with my previous notes, sweet clean and then broth like and savory like a mushroom soup with camphor freshness and some spiciness in some steeps. BUT, since I couldn’t make my next cup right after the finished one.. I noticed that over time the aftertaste once again becomes really sweet and mellow, it is almost as if you had been drinking an well aged sheng.

Now I’m going to ‘braking’ my cakes and leaving layers of it in all the places I frequent just so I can have some then :P

Nice idea. I have an Yixing 12oz thermos just for taking hot water and making puerh on the road or outdoors by a lake, that kind of thing. I like your enjoyment of the aftertaste which shows how you pay attention to your tea.

Portable Thermos/brewing thermos are the best. I’d recommend them to anyone who drinks tea daily.

Interesting I just went to their web site and couldn’t find any tea on it. Just an order form…

JC

Yes, that is kind of a set back. But if it makes any difference you can call and place an order, they are very nice and attentive and won’t mind giving your recommendations based on what your like or are looking for. They are updating things slowly so the order for to me is more like a catalog list where I keep track of what I’ve bought or had some interest in. I love their tea and would recommend it a million times.

Discovered tea a few years ago and I’ve been exploring ever since. I’m looking forward to keep learning and enjoy tea as I do. Keep learning, those who “know” stop learning and become irrelevant to the world.

I’m adding the scale because I noted that we all use the same system but it doesn’t mean the same to all.(I rate the tea not by how much I ‘like it’ only; there are flavors/scents I don’t like but they are quality and are how they are supposed to be and I rate them as such).

90 – 100: AMAZING. This the tea I feel you should drop whatever you are doing and just enjoy.

80-89: Great tea that I would recommend because they are above ‘average’ tea, they usually posses that ‘something’ extra that separates them from the rest.

70-79: An OK tea, still good quality, taste and smell. For me usually the tea that I have at work for everyday use but I can still appreciate and get me going through my day.

60-69: Average nothing special and quality is not high. The tea you make and don’t worry about the EXACT time of steep because you just want tea.

30-59: The tea you should probably avoid, the tea that you can mostly use for iced tea and ‘hide’ what you don’t like.

1-29: Caveat emptor! I feel sorry for my enemies when they drink this tea. :P
