1791 Tasting Notes

Sipping this for the first time with a tea chum…musty, smooth, creamy, and mmm-inducing.

Finishing the last bit. What a delicious gift.

For the delicious…we have this. The last of my sample, sadly.

Three cups later, I think the morning should be allowed to begin.

After yesterday’s pu’erh cravings, I brought this into the office from the stash at home. Best decision I have made all week. Cups of this all morning.

EDIT: And apparently cups for part of the afternoon. Five 12-oz. cups down. Delicious, delicious, delicious.

Despite the time of night, dinner was heavier than I usually eat, and I was craving some pu’erh upon my return home. Of all the pu’erh currently sitting on my countertop (inventory and organization time!), this one jumped out at me, since the description sounded a bit dessert-like.
This will not be a full review, just a record of happy stomach, happy Spencer, and happy tea.

Jonesing so hard for a nice cup of shou, realizing I had none in my desk at work, remembering that a new Chinese tea shop had opened down the street, walking there, finding that they were not open, then returning to work.

Such was the saga that lead to me drinking this at my desk at work. It is a fair imitation of a decent pu’erh, and it is highly inexpensive.

After having started the day, late (unfortunately unavoidable), with a triple lungo on the way to work, followed by three hours of documentation, code, and translating developer-speak into laymans terms for customers…tea was needed, desperately.

In all fairness to this tea, I did not treat it right. It got a rinse, but then it was brewed in a twelve ounce mug, when it was deserving of a gaiwan. Still delicious, all the same. The jasmine is really soothing, calming one’s busy mind.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm, this is great. It not only hits the spot for a lapsang craving, but the dimensions of the tea are succulent. (Can that word be used, here?)

Bio

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
