I did not really enjoy this tea. It had a fishy taste and a bitterness that lingered on my pallet.

Interesting. How did you prepare this one? My experience with this tea was positive. I believe it was my favorite of the bunch.

I used cooler temp like for green tea. If you have any of the sample left you might try chamging parameters. Also I did a wash first.

I did play around with the parameters, and that was the best of the methods I tried. I have had success was Raw Pu before. This is just a tea that I do not like, nor do I appreciate the profile.

Again, interesting. This is a good reminder to me how important personal preference is and how that needs to be considered when reading reviews. Better experiences on your next cup!

It’s not surprising that this tea was bitter. Raw Pu erh teas need aging. I believe it is rare for lovers of Sheng to drink teas this young. Even a cake that is a few years old is still considered immature.
