230 Tasting Notes
First time tasting pu erh! I was scared because the tea only cost me $1, but it was pretty good! I tried the “original” flavor first. No idea if it’s supposed to be ripe or raw, but my guess is ripe.
I rinsed it 3 times just to be sure and then did several steepings of 5, 10 and 30 seconds. I didn’t fill up my 150ml teapot all the way because that seemed like a bit much just for 5g.
It smelled like wood and tasted like black tea with a little extra pizzazz to it. I DID add sugar to it, which has tricked me into liking bad teas in the past (ex. Twinings China Oolong). Who knows. At least I had a good time with it! :)
