Not a bad puerh from a bag! :-) I think Numi isn’t bad bagged tea overall.

The coincidence of it all….I was drinking this tea at work last week, finally remembered that I needed to add it to Steepster, and the first item that shows up on my feed is chrine’s review!
So…as I commented on her post, my son got me this for Christmas (along with the Emperor Puerh from Numi) and I have been drinking them both last week at work. I swear…there is a hint of mint in this chocolate puerh! And it’s not left over from something else in my cup. Anyway, I do like it, it’s a nice pick up in the late afternoon!

Smooth and it not only smells like wine, but kind of tastes like it too! Also a beautiful dark infusion! My son picked this out at the LA Tea Festival last year and I must say, he has good taste! :-)

Strong and black, but no bitter taste and clean tasting. It put hair on my chest! I think this is PG Tips older brother.

Picked this up at the Tea Festival in LA last weekend! I love this flavor, fell in love at first sip! Reminds me of the tom kah soup I love at Thai restaurants, except no fish chunks! And the vanilla smoothes it all out. :-)

They sell this loose leaf under the name “Bangkok.”

Really? Ooh, I will have to put that on my shopping list, thanks! My co-workers come into my office just to open the tin and inhale it! :-D

Ran out of ginger tea so I’m using the Lemongrass to soothe my overstuffed tummy. :-) I like this lemongrass, I like to blend it with my PG Tips or my PG Green. It’s tasty enough to drink on its own, lemonish and smooth.

Oh my gosh, I didn’t have the Aromatic when I first ordered Zealong, and now I’m so sad I didn’t. I’ve been missing out!

I feel the Aromatic is more on the Pure side than the Dark side, and it has a floral fragrance and taste. Like a jasmine, which is of course my favorite, but paired with this oolong’s natural sweetness, it’s a whole new dimension of floral tea for me!

I’ve been drinking this one for two days now, and it puts a smile on my face with every inhale and every sip!

So after about 7 infusions, I think that this year’s tea is not as strong as the 2009 (?) tea. Although it could be because the ’09 tea was my first, then everything has to compare to that, lending to somewhat of a bias. Very little compares to the first time! :-)

I think the ‘11 tea doesn’t taste as “roasty” as the ‘09 tea. BUT, having said that, it does have a character all its own. Buttery smooth, roasty vegetable flavor. Cold, the grassy notes come out more, warm is just a nice cuppa to…well, cup. Welcoming scent, you know you’re in for a treat! It still has that layered personality that I know Zealong to have, it’s like a cousin to the ’09 leaves. Same family, some similar characteristics, but still a stand alone individual.

Long story short, IT’S GOOD.
