Went for a lucky pick with my eyes closed. Picked ripe ginseng pu-ehr. We shall see :D

Doesn’t smell bad (for a pu-ehr lol). Less strong. But I’ve been trying to air them out a bit too.
Washing it off now few times. The puehr smell kicked in (eeek).

After 3 longer washings first steep. 15 seconds. Very short. Experience thought me its better. Smells just like ripe pu ehr. Color not very dark but i washed it off well.
First sip – not that bad as it has been with some. Almost kinda like it. Idk bout ginseng. I just taste pu ehr that is bit better than the others. Has an interesting bitter note. But i still must say these ripe ones all taste pretty much same to me. Some are just bit better than the others. By better i mean more drinkable. Oh well the search continues…

Bio

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…
