940 Tasting Notes
I’ve been obsessed with ripe puerh aged in citrus rinds for months now. I was so excited to see that TeaVivre was offering one!
My sample packet came in the mail yesterday, and I eagerly opened it this morning. The dry leaf is mixed with lots of large tangerine peel chunks, and smells sweetly of citrus!
I did an extra long steep after a brief rinse, which resulted in a dark and RICH creamy brew with cocoa notes and a subtle citrus aftertaste. This definitely has an earthy flavor, and may not appeal to puerh newbies. I would recommend something more mellow for people just starting out in the world of puerh. But for seasoned shu puerh fanatics, this is a welcome and unique taste experience!
I haven’t written a tasting note in a couple of days because I’ve mostly been on a kick of drinking this tea, along with various shu puerhs. Boring to read about but satisfying as heck for me! This one is the perfect combination of sweet/green/savory rice flavors. And I’m loving the matcha kick in the afternoon!
