This is the best oolong I have ever had. Every sip was silky smooth with an incredible depth to it. The creaminess was heavenly.

This is an excellent pu’er. To me it was earthy but it could have been just a tad stronger. I really like the complexity of this tea. It really had a great feel and taste in my mouth. I will definitely order this tea again.

I must admit, this is the first mini-tuocha pu’er that I have purchased. As a result, it took me a while to steep this correctly. It is not a bad tea, in my opinion it is just not that bold. Sure it has that pu’er taste that I love but it is really a muted and weak taste. While my Mandala Noble Mark grabs you and says here I am, this one just says here I am, can you taste me?

I feel very awkward submitting my first tea tasting note. I do not have the ability to tell what sort of taste undertones that a tea may or may not have. All I can tell you is if I like a tea or not. Nor am I a great writer who can write flowing reviews (I am an engineer). Now with that disclaimer, here we go. As you can read in my bio, I love pu’er tea. I got hooked on pu’er when I visited Shanghai with my wife in 2008. When I first tasted this tea I was right back in Shanghai at a very nice dinner that we had in the French Concession. The flavor is bold with multiple, yet unknown to me, undertones. This is the tea I fell in love with and will be buying more.

Excellent! I am so happy that you are enjoying this tea! When I made the blend, I knew it was going to be a fave. I’ve been drinking this as my first tea of the day for many many months. My fiance’ is equally hooked on it :) A match made in heaven.

Don’t worry about putting it into words as far as flavors and all of that. I am much the same way. I know if I love something or don’t. I don’t need fancy words to describe aromas or flavors. More often for me, it is the feeling that a tea evokes in me that is important. The 6th sense, if you will.

Thanks for writing your thoughts and for reviewing this tea, my friend!

Grateful,
Garret

I have been a tea drinker almost all of my life. In 2008 I was able to accompany my wife to a conference she had in Shanghai. At one of the dinners I was introduced to the Nectar of the Gods – Pu’er and I have been hooked ever since.
