I’m excited to report that this was my very first step into the loose leaf tea world. What a great introduction with the Blood Orange Pu-erh from Samovar! A big thanks to Nelson who recommended this tea. I come from the coffee world (I feel like I’ve just sinned), so I have a very rich and flavorful palette and am expecting that from the tea world.
I would definitely recommend this tea to anyone. For those that are fresh of the boat like myself, this tea is definitely a great starting point. To the smell, I was expecting this tea to be quite strong and have an overpowering orange taste. However, it was completely subdued and wasn’t overpowering at all. I had made a couple cups of this Pu-erh at work and had very focused, mental clarity throughout my day. I’m already looking forward to tomorrow!
I’m still unsure how I’m going to adapt to these tea ratings, so please excuse many ratings that may seem a bit projected as I steep my way in.
