drank Royal Pu'erh by Vital Tea Leaf
1601 tasting notes

Backlogging from trying it at the shop. As compared to the Supreme Yunnan (12 year old), this one has a deeper, richer, darker flavor profile. Not necessarily better, as I like them both. The Supreme Yunnan seemed to keep its flavor and strength, consistently, through more infusions. The Royal had a lot of “oomf,” in the first few, which weakened, significantly, though not entirely, by the fifth steeping.

“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…
