2013 MGH 1312 MengKu Ancient Tree Green Pu-erh Tea #1503
5.2g, 100mL gaiwan, Brita filtered water, 200f
1x 5s rinse
dry leaves smell like rest of PS order: dried fruit
wet leaves smell of tart dried fruit, w/ hint of smoke.
5s: light w slight sweet aftertaste
10s: astringent and sharp notes. Stopped here to put the rest to cold brew overnight.
Cold brew turned out nice and fruity. Generally speaking though, likely wouldn’t repurchase. Can’t remember from my notes why I stopped after 2nd infusion, but this was probably one of the days where I was trying to focus on too many things at once and lost interest in this one.
Flavors: Astringent, Dried Fruit, Fruity, Smoke, Sweet
