1108 Tasting Notes
I’m so excited to be the first person to review this puerh. Thank you Teavivre for the generous samples for review!
My first steep is extremely creamy and nutty, and just a little mushroomy. It is earthy but not at all dirty tasting. Very full bodied and rich!
2nd steep is woodsy and brighter…this steep is clean but still very rich.
Very nice shu! Glad I have the opportunity to drink it a couple more times :)
2nd Teavivre sample treat of the day! Thanks Teavivre!
This is a very rich, satisfying black. Very honey sweet and malty with faint floral and cocoa notes. This is the kind of tea I could definitely develop a craving for in the future! Absolutely no bitterness or astringency. Top notch stuff!
Flavors: Baked Bread, Chocolate, Honey, Malt
Thanks so much to Teavivre for providing another round of samples for me to review. I just love trying new teas!
This MIGHT be my first straight keemun?? If not, I am definitely not well versed in them, regardless. I am finding this to be a perfectly bold malty breakfast cup, and although it is sweet, there is a twinge of something a tiny bit sour or tart at the end. But don’t get me wrong, not in a bad way at all! I find this element adds some fruity interest and keeps the tea from being too basic or boring. I think I am going to try it again another day before I give it an official rating, as I’m eating oatmeal with spicy Indian pineapple and golden raisins for breakfast and it might be influencing my palate. Also I am not getting any smoke from this tea even though I hear all the time that keemuns are smoky!
Very enjoyable tea :)
Afternoon pick me up! I’m almost out of this one…only a couple of tsps left! I really enjoyed this flavor though and think I would pick it up again. Not at all artificial tasting. Rich pie-like flavor! Today’s hot latte included 3/4 tsp matcha and 3/4 tsp white sugar whisked in 8oz warm milk. GOOD STUFF. Plotting a matcha order as soon as I have enough money :)
Sample sipdown! This one must have been hiding in my desk at work for a LONG time!
I had a bunch of leftover Indian food for lunch and now I’ve got curry breath! Ack! I’m leaving work early to get my tattoo touched up so I need something minty and refreshing to fix me up. This is perfect! Super GREEN tasting between the mint and the gunpowder tea :)
