6 Tasting Notes

Got a sample of this tea and really loved it.

Not sure if I made it right, but it was fun to drink and really, REALLY calming. I felt like I was going to drift away.

Nice subtle flavors.

Sweet and mellow. I have tried many Ti Guan Yins and this is probably my favorite.

It had a lot of caffeine, but not too much. It made me feel smart. I have tried this a few times, it is really nice. I got samples from them, so recommend everyone tries too.

Wonderful and so easy to drink.

I wold also make it cold from time to time, but no need to add sugar or anything…

The tea is not TOO complex or difficult, which makes it a good tea to drink in the morning as it wont make your stomach hurt. I liked it, but also have others I like more.

This tea is very nice.

I am newer to these kinds of teas and it is my first green puerh, but I have tried the black before and it is nothing like this.

The aging is wonderful, but I understand that most black puerhs are not aged, only processed to be black. This tea is going to be wonderful for aging as the tea is perfect now.

I bought two of the cakes, and will buy more in the future if they are still available. I do agree that Yiwu produces the better of the green puerh teas because I tried a different one recently that was not as complex or flavorful as this. The tea is a tea for all times of the day, so that makes me feel good! Haha. Hope this helps others.

Oh ya, don’t steep it for more than 30-40 seconds, as it is full leaves and has no need to be steeped that long! Held its flavor until the 10th or 11th steeping.

This tea is wonderfully aged and has the notes of camphor. I have only tried a few cups so far, but will have many more :)

New to tea, but happy about it!

I learned about tea through a few friends, and they are introducing me to Oolongs and Puers, both are really nice. Send me a message if you want.
