drank White Bud Puerh by Vicony Teas
1326 tasting notes

I have several teas that really need a sipdown due to age. This is not one of them. It is supposed to get better with age. I just couldn’t help myself and now it is gone. A wonderful fermented white tea. Retains enough of its white tea traits to be recognizable and supplements it with fresh raw puerh like earthiness. This is from Yunnan but I don’t know if it is truly a puerh but somehow calling it dark tea doesn’t seem correct either. How about I just say it was really good. Definitely worth trying if you can find it.

Yep, they are making white pu-erh cakes now.

Interesting to spot pu-erh being reviewed upon my opening this page and not for a while now. I am having a cup of pu-erh this morning from one of the tea bags that Azzarian sent my way.

I have not had pu-erh in a long while and this one is most welcome. It is raw, damp richly dark red in color; smelling of damp earth and tasting as such and richly in minerals. All of this from a cup of dampness pu-erh.
If I have not made sense then I don’t understand the drink that is pu-erh.

I find this tea to be well fermented since the aroma/odor and taste depicts as much. Similarly so to your White Bud pu-erh description. How interesting?

Thank you for sharing, hope you don’t mind my jumping in.
