Where else can you tell your friends that you had a taste for Camel’s Breath and not get an odd look?
This has quickly become a favorite. Tonight, I experimented with it and ignored the recommended steeping guidelines. Instead of short periods, I let this sit for a good four minutes. It turned out great, but completely different from past preparations. It was rich and earthy. It was a bit like a mild coffee and the brine that has become characteristic of this pu-erh (for me) was gone.
It’s nice to know that this is so forgiving that it’s enjoyable even if you’re a bit outside of ideal parameters.
