1108 Tasting Notes
What a unique and delicious young sheng!
It reminds me of sencha, oddly enough. It is very sweet and sort of vegetal. It has a pleasant and delicate huigan, and is light on the cha qi scale. This might be good for people who are unsure about puerh but really love green tea!
I’m glad I got to try it :)
No notes yet. Add one?
Thanks Cameron B for letting me try the non-rooibos version of this tea.
I actually drank this one yesterday but was too lazy to log it at the time. SO MUCH BETTER WITHOUT THE ROOIBOS! Very yummy actually :D
I sometimes sweeten teas when I’m at home, so I tried it that way. Very s’mores a licious. heh. I actually quite enjoyed the smokey element.
Thanks for the sample Cameron B! :D
I hot steeped this one and poured it over ice to take to work with me this morning. I find I like these fruity Fauchon teas iced the best. The peach is very nice and the thyme is not too strong or too weird or too overpowering. I’ll definitely pick up a tin if I ever see one at TJ Maxx, but I checked my local store again last night and we are still Fauchon-free.
Now I kind of want to experiment with peach/thyme flavored desserts…ooh or maybe jam!!!
I totally forgot about this sample! Yang-Chu included it with my portion of the group TeaUrchin order. Thanks again!
It has a mild but pleasant bitterness, and its flavor lingers in my throat. It has a nice flavor but isn’t very sweet. I like it, but I do prefer some other shengs in my collection :)
It is hitting the spot. I was definitely in the mood for sheng this morning!
One of the first teas I ordered from Butiki was Three Friends, and I love PTA, so I was excited to see Two Friends as part of the Butiki birthday sale!
Orange is the primary flavoring here, with a smooth chocolatey undertone, of course enhanced by the scrumptious Assam.
I dig it! Good idea Sil! :D
It has been months since I first tried this shu sample from boychik, but I have been thinking about it a lot lately, and remembering it as one of the best shu puerhs I’ve ever had. I only have a couple of servings left but I had to have some today to see if it is as good as I remember it…and also to ask if ANYONE knows how I can get more of this cake? I’ve searched online and I guess it is sold out. Sadness!
I know there will always be new puerhs to try and fall in love with though, maybe someday ones even better than this one.
I am only on steep #1 right now but it is all velvety smoothness and cocoa richness…ahhhhh :)
