8 Tasting Notes
Not much of a pu-erh drinker, really, but trying to learn more. This is only the second real pu-erh that I’ve owned (the last one being a Grand Shou, I think from McNabs). This one seems surprisingly light and creamy, very low on tanins – a nice taste, though I think perhaps I’d prefer something more robust. Wildly dark liquor, though.
I have an enduring fondness for Wuyis in general, and Red Blossom’s heritage roasting is fantastic. That said, I think I have a slight preference for the Heritage Grand Scarlet over the Tie Luo Han, as this seemed to lack a certain richness. Perhaps it was just this steeping; I’ll try more leaves next time.
